Nancy A. Weems KNOXVILLE, TN - Nancy Armstrong Weems Earp, 77, died April 21, 2018, in Knoxville, TN. She was preceded in death by her husband, William M.

She is survived by one daughter, Lee Ann Weems Prescott, of Marion, VA, and one grandchild, Sarah "Sata" Prescott, of DeKalb, Illinois. Born in Knoxville, Weems was a teacher for more than 30 years, first in Tennessee, then in Marion, VA, and in Shelby, NC. She was passionate about reaching every student in her classes of English, speech, drama, and filmmaking. Hundreds of students participated in her highly regarded theatre program at Shelby High School. She was cremated by Click Funeral Home of Lenoir City, TN and her ashes were placed upon her son's grave in Tennessee. Instead of a funeral, Weems will be remembered at a Memorial Service at 4 p.m. on Saturday, July 14, 2018, at Malcolm Brown Auditorium on the campus of Shelby High School in Shelby, NC. The family would appreciate contributions to the Nancy Weems Scholarship at Shelby High School Theatre Department, 230 E. Dixon Blvd., Shelby, NC 28150.
