The world lost one of the sweetest, most gentle ladies recently. On Thursday April 28, 2016, Nancy "Blondie" Gent Burt, 64, unexpectedly received her wings while en route to see family in her hometown of New Bern, N.C. Nancy was vibrant, fun-loving and a bit sassy. She loved spending time with family, friends and her beloved animals. Nancy was strong and maintained a positive attitude through many challenges, including a successful battle with cancer. Nancy enjoyed the life she built in Wellington, Ala. with her husband, Elton Burt. She extended our family with a multitude of "critters," including Rottweilers, goats, barn cats, cows and the occasional llama and donkey. She also loved to swim and garden. In addition to her husband, Nancy leaves behind children, Patrick Poole, Dawn Cohn Burkett, Grant (Jennifer) Burt, Tobi (Shelley) Burt, and Candace Burt. She will also be missed by her 10 grandchildren; six great-grandchildren, and her brothers, William N. Gent III and Albert (Diana) Gent. Nancy was preceded in death by her parents, William N. Gent Jr. and Garnetta "Pat" Gent. A celebration of Nancy's life will be held Wednesday May 4, 2016 at 4 p.m. at Anniston Memorial Funeral Home in Anniston, Ala. The family will receive friends at 3 p.m., With her wishes in mind, she will have a closed casket. The family would like to extend a heart-felt thank you to close friends who have offered their love and support. Although Nancy loved flowers, the family asks that donations be made to your favorite cancer or animal charity. Anniston Memorial Funeral Home 3865 US Highway 431 N Anniston, AL 36206 256-820-0024
