Nancy will be remembered as a remarkable woman with a wide variety of interests and talents. She was Incredibly intelligent and witty. She was a nurse, a published journalist with a deep passion for writing, and an airplane pilot and instructor. She embraced her faith and could often be found at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Wilmington, Delaware doing something to help the community. Whether it be quilting, cooking, or whatever was needed. She was there!

She is preceded in death by her son, Robert Raynolds; her siblings Margaret (Peggy); William "Bill", Richard "Dick" and his wife, Marilyn, Robert "Bob" and his wife Valerie.
