Nancy Anne was a graduate of Crafton High School where she played basketball. Her professional career spanned many years in the insurance industry, having worked for Richard Hardenberg Insurance, Group of Marlton, NJ and retired from Cigna Insurance Co.

She found particular joy in making doll clothes, needlework and crafts for her grandchildren. She was admired for her strong work ethic and resourcefulness.
She formerly lived in Merchantville NJ, Bensalem, Philadelphia and Leesburg FL. She and Tom took great pleasure in residing on historic Elfreth’s Alley in Philadelphia and participating in the annual Fete Day celebrations. Nancy and Tom loved to travel and fulfilled their retirement dream of being full time motor homers traveling the United States and Canada. During these cross-country trips, they enjoyed meeting new friends and sharing experiences with numerous motor home clubs. After the death of her husband, she was blessed with the love of her dear companion Dale Fulmer, who was her partner for over 15 years until his death.
