Warren; and one great-grandson. Survivors include a younger sister, Ann Willard; two granddaughters; three great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandchild; one nephew, her caregiver; and three nieces. Also surviving are her special neighbors at Fairington Apartments. Nancy was a remarkable self-sufficient lady who loved life and a good game of bridge. She drove her car until she was 95 years of age, played bridge twice a week until 98 years and only slowed down when she lost her eyesight. At her request, there will be no funeral. A private graveside gathering will take place at a later date. Donations are appreciated to your favorite charity or to Feeding America Southwest Virginia.
