Nancy is survived by three daughters Debbie Minton of Columbia, NC, Lynda (Ed) Dick of Pennsylvania, and Courtney (Ronald) Thompson of Bladenboro, NC. She also left behind twelve grandchildren, ten great grandchildren as well as two nephews, Willie (Cathy) Glynn and Howie (Desi) Glynn and a large number of extended family.

To know Nancy was to love her! She had an outgoing personality and a quick-witted sense of humor that was one of a kind. She found humor in any situation that allowed her to bring others as well as herself to see the positive side of even the toughest of situations. Her most admirable quality, though she had many, was her giving heart. Whether it was driving someone to pay bills, cooking meals for the sick, or simply donating money to a good cause. Nancy was a true example of ways to spread the ministry of Jesus.

“To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord” (2 Corinthians 12:8) is where we will look to for strength during the difficult transition of sending her Home to Heaven as we know she is no longer suffering but is happy and healthy and back with Jack and strolling the streets of Gold. We love you Mamaw, fly high!

A funeral service is planned for Saturday, November 7, 2020 at 1 p.m. at The Gallop Funeral Chapel followed by interment at Manteo Cemetery. Please express condolences to the family via the online register at Gallop Funeral Services, Inc. was entrusted with arrangements.
