Roberts, Nancy Wheeler
Rochester: June 11, 2103. Died at 62 years of age after a spirited struggle with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma cancer. Predeceased by her father, Marshall Roberts. She leaves behind her mother, Eileen Roberts, her brother, Steven Roberts; aunt, Phyllis Harnack; nephew, Christopher Hart; nieces, Leslie, Judith & Gail Blackhall & Barbara Harnack. She leaves behind a wonderful group of friends who have been at her side during her illness, including her oldest friends for some 30 years, Gail Kirchgessner & Nan Mazzuco.
Born in Needham, Mass., Nancy was a graduate of Mt. Ida College & went on to a successful business career. A gifted gardener all her life, she provided beautiful landscaping for each of her several homes. Here in Rochester she enjoyed serving as a board member of the North Winton Village Association - most recently as organizer of its annual plant sale. And this obituary wouldn't be complete without the mention of Rusty & Jenny, the last in a long line of cats lovingly cared for by Nancy.
A reception for Nancy will take place on Saturday (June 15th) from 3-5 PM at Sanibel Cottage (1517 Empire Blvd., Webster, NY). Any donations in Nancy's memory may be made to the Humane Society at Lollypop Farm (99 Victor Rd., Fairport, NY 14450). Online Condolences welcomed at:
