Her genuineness and compassion made her many friends. She had a couple
of favorite groups of girlfriends, with whom she shared much enjoyment and
mutual love.
She loved to travel, was adventurous and loved seeing and trying new things.
Her job allowed her and Joe to travel some, and they saw a lot of the U.S.
scenery and cities. Jamaica was a spot Nancy and Joe visited twice, and
other numerous adventures with friends and family filled her life.
She was a dedicated member of the Eucharistic Adoration program at Holy
Family Parish, where she also made friends, young and old alike.
She was a dedicated daughter, sister, wife and a terrific mom.
After raising three sons and with three brothers, Nancy was joyous and proud
becoming a grandmother to Isabel and Grace Fleming, the girls she had
waited so long for.
Basically a simple woman with remarkable energy, Nancy loved to laugh, and
over the years shared "new" jokes with "OB," Jack, "Duck" or whomever she
could enlighten. All who knew her will remember her as a truly genuinely nice
and caring person and will miss her support and positive attitude. May God
bless her and keep her until we all meet again. Thanks to all her friends (you
know who you are) who helped her, Joe and the family get through some
difficult times. God bless you all, and God bless Nancy Jo Serpette Fleming.
