In the early 1970s, she relocated to Durham, North Carolina, where she lived for over twenty years. In 1992, Nancy relocated again to Lake City, South Carolina, where she spent her final years. Nancy was employed at the Lake City Sav-Way for many years and was affectionately known as ‘Ms. Nancy’ by her co-workers and customers, who especially acknowledges her for finger-lickin, fried chicken”. She was admired by all who came in contact with her.
On Sunday, October 18, 2020, while in the care of McLeod Hospice House in Florence, South Carolina, God plucked a beautiful flower to add to his heavenly bouquet.
