She is also survived by her sister-in-law and lifetime friend, Peggy Pupello, her cousin and might as well be sister, Willie Jean Maddox and numerous nieces and nephews.

Nancy was a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother. Her ever present smile, grace and calmness provided a home not only for her family, but for their many friends. Her kitchen was always open and well stocked and if you were fortunate enough to enjoy Sunday spaghetti, you never forgot it. She was truly a model for how to parent a family and will never be forgotten by anyone who met her.

The family would also like to thank Yolanda, Carmen, Betty, and Nelly for their love and care over the past 4 years.

The family will receive family and friends at 11am on Friday, June 9, 2017 at Blount & Curry Funeral Home, MacDill Avenue chapel. At noon, a short service will be conducted in the chapel by her Pastor, Kerry Nance of Southside Baptist Church. Private burial services for her extended family will follow at Myrtle Hill Memorial Park.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Nancy’s memory to Southside Baptist Church, 3911 W. Bay Ave., Tampa, FL 33616.
