Peacefully at Northumberland Hills Hospital on Thursday May 22nd, 2014 in her 84th year with her loving and devoted husband of fifty-five years and her adoring daughter at her side. Beloved wife of Ken, loving mother of Judy Simpson (Kelly) and proud grandmother of Nick Simpson. Loving sister of Gail Lumsden (Graham). Fondly remembered by her niece and nephews, her great-niece and great-nephews and by her many friends. Predeceased by her sister Patricia May Moore (nee Oswell), her mother Emily Oswell (nee Blyth) and by her father James Neviett Oswell.
Of Nancy’s many accomplishments she was known for the seventeen years she wrote “A Salem Sampler” – a weekly column in the local Colborne Chronicle newspaper. Her little column had followers world wide.
At Nancy’s request there will be no funeral or memorial service. Donations may be made to Heritage United Church (formerly Salem United Church) or Northumberland Hills Hospital Palliative Care Unit. Condolences received at www.MacCoubrey.com.
