Nancy spent many years living in East Lyme, where her and Dan loved visiting the beach as often as they could (even in the winter) to go sea glass hunting. What she loved the most was spending time with her family and spoiling her dog Chloe. Her passion for loving people has shown her entire life. While her kids grew up, she held a Day Care at her home so she could spend as much time as possible with them. Nancy was known as the “Camp Mom” at June Norcross Webster for many years while her and her family spent the summers working for the Boy Scouts of America. For the past 5 years Nancy worked at Grill 37 in Pomfret, CT in various roles, most recently as a Manager and she will be greatly missed by patrons and coworkers, who were like a second family to her.
A celebration-of-life will be held at Grill 37 in Pomfret, CT on Friday, August 23rd at 2PM.
