Nancy was born November 11, 1938 to the late Frank and Ethel Ellyson Clowdis. Known as “Nana” to many in the community, she found great joy in the company of people; always leaving others better than she found them with just a flash of a smile- and sometimes a little more! Nancy retired from General Electric after 40 years with the company. She enjoyed working outdoors and attending the many sporting games and events of her children and grandchildren. Nana is remembered for her sweet tooth, spellbinding technique in quieting a fussy baby, and her candid humor! She was a member of Providence Baptist Church in Red House.
A service to honor her life will be held at 2 p.m. on Saturday, February 20, 2021 at Providence Baptist Church in Red House by the Rev. Dwayne Shepherd with interment to follow in the church cemetery. The family will receive friends at the church from 1 p.m. until time of service. For the safety and concern for others, all COVID protocols are being followed
