McAulay and Wallace Mortuary - Fullerton - Fullerton Obituary

Nancy Land Alexander Hefft, age 77, passed away on Saturday September 28, 2019, surrounded by family.  She was born to the late Howard P. Alexander and Anne Northington Alexander on April 22, 1942.  She spent her childhood in Leimert Park and the Baldwin Hills of Los Angeles, where she graduated from Dorsey High School in 1960.  She attended Los Angeles City College and Colorado State University. Nancy married Wayne Alsteen Hefft in Los Angeles in June of 1964. Nancy and Wayne raised their three children, Lori, Shari and Wayne Jr., in Fullerton, California. She gave generously of her time to many charity, church, school and sports activities with her family. Nancy and Wayne moved to Atlanta, Georgia, in 1995.  When Wayne died suddenly in 1999, Nancy moved back to Orange County, California, to be with family in San Clemente, especially her grandchildren, Cory, Bryce and Grace Schubert, Heather and Samantha Brandriff, Celeste and Max Braeutigam, and Shay and Jason Hefft. 


Family was always the first priority for Nancy.  She was so excited to know that her first great grandchild was on the way. She delighted in sharing the successes, joys and accomplishments of her kids and grandkids, and she will be remembered for her loving support, her encouraging attitude, her loyalty to every sports activity of every family member, her warm hugs, her ready smile, and her happy outlook. She will be missed.

Nancy is survived by her three children and their spouses, Lori and Steve Schubert, Shari and Rick Braeutigam, Wayne and Uki Hefft; her nine grandchildren; her sister, Penny Alexander Bentley (Donald); nephew Jim Bentley and nieces Jill and Janet Bentley.  She was pre-deceased by her husband, Wayne, and her parents.  A private graveside service will be held Saturday, October 5, 2019.
