Nancy Ellen Moyer Obituary
YORK Nancy Ellen Moyer, 77, passed away following a lengthy battle with leukemia on Monday, February 17 at Community Care Hospice Center in Mount Joy with her loving husband by her side. The daughter of the late Richard A. and Genevieve (Renforth) Gillon, Nancy was born on December 27, 1936, in Butler. She was the cherished wife of James M. Moyer and celebrated 49 years of marriage in August. Jim and Nancy have the distinction of being the first official marriage at St. Andrew's R.C. Church in Butler. She is survived by two sons, James R. Moyer and wife Jacqueline of Red Oak, Va. and Jon R. Moyer and wife Angeline of York. Nancy had two grand-children, Lauren and James Moyer; and four stepgrandchildren, Lindsay and Mitchell Morris, Gary and Wes Hefner. Nancy will be missed by her brother, Richard U. GIllon and wife Betty of Marietta, Ohio; and sister-in-law, Barbara Richardson and husband Vernon of New Port Richie, Fla.; as well as numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. She was preceded in death by her sister, Genevieve Marie (Gillon) Young, and daughter-in-law Rebecca (Holloman) Heafner Moyer. Nancy was a member of St. Joseph's R.C. Church following a move to the York area in 2004. Prior to that, Nancy attended St. Andrew's R.C. in Butler. Nancy entered the work force immediately after high school as an employee in the office for the superintendent of the Butler Area School District from 1954-1958. From 1958-1965, Nancy worked as the secretary to the President of Slippery Rock State College (now University). From 1965-1982, Nancy was a dedicated and devoted stay-at-home mom, who was actively involved with her sons' busy schedules, including scouting, sports, music lessons/ensembles and school functions. From 1982 until her retirement in 1999, Nancy went back to work as a secretary and office manager for the Butler Area Agency on Aging. Outside of work, Nancy embraced her role as 'official family photographer', having taken, catalogued and preserved thousands of pictures throughout her life. Her retirement was full of time spent at concerts and sporting events watching kids and grandkids in action as well as trips and visits to and with family members. Nancy also was a skilled and talented gardener who enjoyed backyard bird watching. In celebration of Nancy's life, a blessing service will be held in the Narthex of St. Joseph's R.C. Church, 2935 Kingston Road, beginning at 5 p.m. on Thursday, February 20, with light refreshments to follow. In lieu of flowers, contributions in memory of Nancy may be made to the Central Pennsylvania Chapter of the Lymphoma and Leukemia Society at 2405 Park Drive, Harrisburg, PA 17110 or online by visiting Arrangements entrusted to the John W. Keffer Funeral Homes and Crematory, Inc., 902 Mt. Rose Avenue.
