Nancy Carol May
Of Upland, California, passed away peacefully on Tuesday 9/3/13 surrounded by her family. Nancy was born at the Green Memorial Hospital (Cottage) in Upland in 1947. She grew up in Pomona. She and her husband Mark raised her children Matt and Katie in Upland.
Nancy received her B.A., Teaching Credential and M.A. from Cal Poly Pomona. She taught business classes at Edgemont High School in Covina and was, for nearly 20 years, a 4th and 5th grade teacher at Magnolia Elementary in Upland.
Nancy was a loving wife, mother and sister, and a revered teacher. She was a gracious hostess and loved to cook and entertain family and friends. Nancy had a passion for riding in trains and that passion was inherited by her beautiful grandson David. Bird feeders surrounded her home so could watch all the wild birds. Nancy loved spending time with her dogs and cat; she treated them more like children.
Nancy is survived by her husband of 41 years, Mark, Brother-in-law Michael, children Mathew and Katie, Sister JoAnn and brother-in-law Steve, Brother Stephan and sister-in-law Jill, and the light of her life grandson David.
A celebration of life will be held at Pilgrim Congregational Church at 600 N. Garey Ave in Pomona at 2p.m. the 14th of September followed by light refreshments in Pilgrim Hall.
In lieu of flowers contributions may be made to Magnolia Elementary School at 465 W. 15th Street, Upland, CA 91786 in memory of Nancy May.
