Norma Ann ""Nanny/Big Nanny"" Sloggie

Norma Ann (Turner) "Nanny/Big Nanny" Sloggie, 83, passed away on Monday, July 1, 2013. A native of Newport News, she had been a Peninsula resident since 1935. Mrs. Sloggie resided at Spring Arbor in Williamsburg for the last four years. She was also a member of St. Jerome Catholic Church. She was preceded in death by her husband of 54 years, David J. Sloggie, who was patiently awaiting her arrival, and her loving mother, Lillian Turner. Survivors include three sons, Ron Sloggie and his wife, Cheryl, of Newport News, Dave Sloggie and his wife, Maureen, of Williamsburg, Brian Sloggie of Newport News; two daughters, Maudine Sandridge of Henrico and Jannine Goetz and her husband, Greg, of York County; 21 grandchildren, Jennifer Pierce and her husband, Jeff, Megan Moats and her husband, Zack, Angela and her fiancé, Rudy, Raymond, Amy Coston and her husband, Mike, Lauren Winters and her husband, Brian, Christopher, Charles, David, Casey, Brandy, Chelsea, Hailey, Emily, Melissa and Sarah; three great-granddaughters, Keara, Lillian and Kaydence; and three great-grandsons, Aren, Roan, and Brian. She also leaves to mourn her devoted sister-in-law, Violet Cavalcante of Baltimore, Md.; three nieces and one nephew.
She was a devoted mother who was always there for her children and taught them how to love. There are so many wonderful memories she has left us to reflect upon. Her death is so bittersweet, because we are saddened by it, but know that she is in the arms of our father whom she has missed so dearly. It brings us joy that they are together and, no doubt, on God's dance floor.
The family will receive friends from 4 to 5:30 p.m. Sunday, July 7, at Peninsula Funeral Home in Newport News. Her funeral service will be conducted on Monday, July 8, at 1 p.m. at the funeral home with entombment to follow in Peninsula Memorial Park.
The family requests donations be made to Hospice.
