Nancy leaves to cherish her memories and mourn her passing, her husband David Anthony “Tony” Lewis of the home; a sister in-law, Terry Lewis of Fayetteville; also, her extended church family and friends.

Nancy was a loyal and devoted wife, daughter and friend.  Nancy was an avid outdoor enthusiast, she loved fishing, horse riding, especially trail rides and also was a NASCAR racing fan.  Nancy was a drummer and a great one at that.  She started playing drums in grade school, then as a student in high school, she was a drummer with the 71st High School High School Marching Band.  Nancy played drums professionally with several bands throughout the years.  Nancy had a passion for photography and loved capturing special moments.  Nancy was a devoted member of Parkton United Methodist Church and played drums with the praise band.  She was a blessing to so many and will be missed by all that knew and loved her.

Tony without any doubt you know where your sweet Nancy is. An angel on earth and now an angel in Heaven with her Lord Savior. We will all be reunited one day, and what a day that will be.
Our thoughts and prayers for you my friend.
God Bless,

Nancy, my beautiful friend. I am missing you so much. I miss calling you, praying with you, and messaging you the last couple of months. You were such a wonderful friend and I have been truly blessed by you.. You had such courage. The text you sent me very early one morning telling me goodbye and to tell Tony you loved him will stay with me forever. I know you are singing your favorite hymn, His Eye Is On The Sparrow with your loved ones and rejoicing with Jesus. I love you sweet lady.

Nancy you are now in God's hands. I will always remember your passion for your drums and your patience in teaching me that old dogs can learn new things - even the bass. You remain in my prayers as does Tony. Fly free now.
