Nancy Bellamore Fawcett Obituary
December 18, 1943 - February 26, 2017 Surrounded by close friends and family, Nancy Bellamore Fawcett passed away peacefully on Sunday, February 26, 2017 from complications of ALS. She was a psychotherapist in private practice for thirty years in West Los Angeles, as well as a beloved faculty member for more than two decades in the graduate psychology program at Antioch University Los Angeles. With an early background in elementary education, Nancy became interested in the influence of violence in children's television programming while living in New York. Relocating to Los Angeles in 1976 she utilized her interest in children's television to become a valued broadcast standards and practices editor in the ABC network offices. Always an advocate of psychotherapy, when encouraged by a trusted television colleague she decided to pursue graduate study in psychology at Antioch University and subsequent licensing as a Marriage and Family Therapist. She was active in the Group Psychotherapy Association of Los Angeles and the American Group Psychotherapy Association. With hundreds of former students in the Southern California area she was a co-founder of the Antioch Alumni Council. A lifelong interest in art inspired her work as a founding board member of Art Division, a not-for-profit program founded by artist Dan McCleary near McArthur Park, which supports late adolescent and young adult artists. Beloved by former students, colleagues and friends, she will be remembered as an energetic force for education, mental health and the arts. She is survived by her loving husband of thirty-five years James Fawcett, her twin sister Susan Damour of Denver, Colorado, and numerous friends in the region and throughout the country. Memorial services will be held at All Saints Episcopal Church in Beverly Hills on Friday, March 31 at 2:00 pm. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested donations be made to Art Division or Antioch University Los Angeles. Further information is available at www.nancymemorial.info.
