She also left behind her treasured grandchildren, Jacob, Nicholas, and Gaines whom she bragged about often to anyone who would listen. Her giving heart and generous spirit serve as a legacy to her family. Nancylee was a nursing supervisor and triage-floor nurse for the Pediatric and Adolescence Medical Group in Middletown.

Finally, she leaves behind many nieces, nephews and friends who brought much love and joy to her heart; including her life-long partner in crime and motorcycle buddy, Sharon Kain who could often be seen buzzing around town with her. She enjoyed traveling with her family and often had her Kindle in hand. She loved sleeping on the beach, caring for her house plants, and spoiling her dogs, Grace and Hope. Nancylee had a radiant personality, boundless energy and a way of making all with whom she came in contact feel truly blessed.
