Nancy Sue Murray
Nancy Sue Murray (Sweeney), a wife, a sister, a mother, a grandmother, a woman of faith, a champion for life, a Survivor, a dear friend, passed away on November 21st, 2015.
Nancy Sue arrived on a warm August day in Milltown, New Brunswick, 1940, and it was obvious to many that she was ushered into this world to make a difference. Her life had a purpose, it had meaning to many and she will be remembered for her strong faith in God, her love of her family and many friends, and her commitment to making the world just a little bit easier, a little bit better.
Leaving the comforts of home in Milltown and Bert, Theresa & Cecilia, her dear aunts, she was wisped away by her husband Frank to the lovely Annapolis Valley, where they made a home and a family for the next 44 years. She was an exemplary mother and a loving wife. Her family was her passion and she lived for them.
Her extraordinary spirit will be remembered by her husband Frank, her son Brian (Jayne) and her grandchildren Stephanie, Kelly and Peter. Nancy is remembered with love by her brothers Joseph (Anna) and Paul (Joanne). Raised by her loving aunts, Nancy grew up with many cousins: Mary Frances, Gert, Judy, Patty and Jane all whom she called sisters. If you will, simply close your eyes and you can remember her dancing the jive, offering an opinion, singing in her church, cheering at a basketball game, serving you at the bank, standing with you as you champion an important cause, loving her family unconditionally and quiet nights with Frank in front of the fire, eating pizza, on the most Pleasant of streets. Nancy passed away in just the same way she lived: surrounded by her loving family and being more concerned about how others are doing, how others will cope. This is how she lived and how we will remember her.
Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Friday, November 27th at 11 AM at St. Stephen's Catholic Church in Milltown, NB.
By request, there will be no visitation.
For those who wish and in lieu of flowers, a memorial donation to a local food bank would be appreciated by the family.
