Nancy’s love for her family embodied the strong relational bond that her family will remain to cherish over the many years. Friends and family would widely agree, her love for her lineage, her children, nieces and nephews, grandchildren and great grandchildren, was pure and unconditional. Her love was like a tree: A seed of love, rooted deeply within her being, that blossomed into a strong oak. One that could withstand the shakes and bends and would go with the flow, never to break or fall. During times of drought, its roots would dive down deeper, so that whatever would come or go, it could stand the test of all. It’s strong branches help to ensure that a love like hers would continue to flourish over time.
Nancy’s life will be remembered for a multitude of reasons by family and friends. From her kind hearted soul, to her compassionate heart; her witty remarks and humor only those close to her would truly understand. Nancy lived a life of hospitality and affection. She’d never pass up an opportunity to hand a hug out and let you know how proud she is. She would give every ounce of effort to ensure her family was taken care of, without hesitation.
Nancy was also known to have many animals over the years, from dogs to chickens, and even a squirrel for a short time. Her nurturing soul believed that animals were a gift from God, and that they too should be treated with compassion. It was evident that her heart truly had no bounds for the amount of love it could have for all of God’s creations.
Nancy was and forever will be the example of a woman of fierceness and empowerment. Her memory will be that of the same. She was a precious daughter, a caring sister, a loving wife, a headstrong aunt, a nurturing mom and proudly held the title of Maw Maw as a grand/great grandmother for so many years. She wouldn’t mind sticking up for her beliefs and holding true to her wits, a trait she has passed down through the generations. She was honest to her core and held her moral values close to her chest. In essence, Nancy was the exact foundational piece that helped mold her family into everything she always loved and cherished.
A dedication to her sister, Mary Ann Sulivan, would be something she’d also wish to share. In the final months of her time here on earth, Mary Ann stepped up and selflessly took on the role of in-home caregiver and best friend when Nancy needed it the most. An act that will forever be solemnly appreciated. Mary Ann was her sister’s guardian angel. "
