After a long battle, Nancy passed away from complications associated with Alzheimer's disease on Friday, November 4, 2011. The wife of the late Harry A. Begg, both from Solana Beach, California, died quickly and painlessly.|
Born in California in 1926, Nancy lived in the Claremont area in 1944 where she attended Pomona College. She graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in English in 1948. Shortly after college she worked as a secretary.
She met Harry and they married in 1949 in Claremont, California. After their marriage, they moved to Solana Beach where they chose to build their life together. Nancy worked at the local schools in the San Dieguito School District where her children attended through most of their childhood. She had a close knit family of friends with whom she attended lunches and church with on Sundays. After retiring, she enjoyed the many cruise trips shared with Harry and the family and spending time with her grandchildren. Nancy was a wonderfully kind woman who loved gardening, her fruit trees and serving others in any way she could.
She is survived by her three children, Margaret, Cathy and Alex; seven grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.
