If anyone would like to contribute towards the flowers, let me know and any extra will be sent to the Cancer Center. Here is her obituary. xoxo
GREENSBORO — Nancy Jane Littlejohn McNally, of Greensboro, NC, touched the face of God on October 16, 2012. She was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, mother-in-law, sister-in-law, and cherished friend to countless others.
Nancy was born on January 22, 1951 in Portsmouth, OH. She was the treasured daughter of the late William Kenneth and Mary Edith Littlejohn. Along with her mother, Nancy moved to Cherry Hill, NJ in 1962. It was there, just five short years later as a sixteen year-old girl, that she met the great love of her life, Bert. They were married on July 12, 1969. Together, they have two children, a son, Matthew, and daughter, Jennifer. Nancy said quite frequently throughout her life that her greatest desire was to be a loving wife and mother to her "babies." Without question, she filled those roles as terrifically as has any woman ever. Later, Nancy would enjoy the blessings of grandmotherhood. First came the birth of her granddaughter Madison Grace, and shortly thereafter arrived granddaughter Avery Rebecca. Later, the birth of grandsons Jackson Alexander and Wyatt Henry became the final jewels in her crown.
Throughout her life, Nancy followed the tremendous love that filled her gigantic heart. She gave of herself quite reflexively to those in need, friend and stranger alike. She was, in short, a most remarkable woman in every way. The love and kindness she displayed throughout her life left enriched those fortunate enough to have known her.
Nancy has joined in Heaven her beloved mother and father, her dear brother Billy, and her lovely aunt, Verla.
Nancy is survived by her husband Bert, son Matthew, daughter Jennifer, and her beloved grandchildren. She is also survived by her cherished cousins and numerous sisters- and brothers-in-law. Rest in peace Mommy, and rejoice in the Glory of God.
