Nancy enjoyed all types of hand crafts especially, crocheting, macrame, needlepoint and sewing. She was an avid card player and also enjoyed playing dominoes and games with her grandchildren. Nancy and Frank spent many winters in their Myrtle Beach home, a place very special to her. She will always be remembered for her feisty personality and her ability to tell you what you needed to hear in a loving way. Above all Nancy loved being a wife, mother, Grammy and MiMi.
