Nancy is predeceased by her husband of over 50 years, David. Cherished by her children Lynda (Tom) and Stephen. She will be greatly missed by her grandchildren Scott and Jeffrey, her brother Bob (Liz) and many nieces and nephews. Nancy will be fondly remembered by her long time friends Dorothy, Carol (Jack), Mary (Jim) and her caregiver Sue.
Mom loved to give back to her community. She spent over 40 years volunteering at Peel Memorial Hospital and several years volunteering with the Nortel Golden Legends. She was an avid reader, loved animals (especially Muffin, Tai and Sam) but her passion was swimming and being near water. Born in Chatham, Mom spent her summers at Erieau, where her love for swimming started. As a teenager she taught swimming lessons at the Erieau Yacht Club, when not teaching she loved to be on the lake sailing. Mom and Dad spent many years travelling to their favourite getaways in Vermont and New Hampshire, eventually travelling Europe after Dad retired. Mom loved to play cards often entertaining their friends for a game of bridge or an enjoying an afternoon of euchre with the ladies.
