NANCY L. MECCIA Obituary
Nancy L. Meccia of Inverness Visitation for Nancy L. Meccia (nee Kalachnik), 54, will be from 3 to 9 p.m. Monday, June 18, at Smith-Corcoran Funeral Home, 185 E. Northwest Highway, Palatine. Funeral services will begin with prayers at 9:45 a.m. Tuesday, at the funeral home, proceeding to St. Michael Episcopal Church, 647 Dundee Ave., Barrington for a service at 10:30 a.m. Interment will be in St. Michael the Archangel Cemetery. Born Aug. 16, 1957, in Chicago, she passed away peacefully in her home, Thursday, June 14, 2012, after a valiant battle against cancer. She was surrounded by her loving family: Sam, husband of 32 years; and her children, Joe and Samantha. A longtime employee of the Chicago Tribune and, later, a stay-at-home mom, Nancy was a vital, outspoken woman, who journeyed through her illness with strength, dignity and grace. Her wicked sense of humor and enjoyment of a good gathering of friends and family were matched only by her passion for cooking. Nancy leaves behind a brother, Paul, and a host of relatives and friends to whom she was fiercely devoted. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make a donation to the Hospice of Northeastern Illinois, 405 Lake Zurich Road, Barrington, Illinois 60010, http://www.hospiceanswers.org.
