In memory of
Nancy Ann Nathanson (nee Smith) passed away on January 7, 2019, after a brief battle with cancer. She was born March 30, 1945, in Worcester, MA to the late Charles and Anna Smith. Nancy was a 1963 graduate of North High School, in Worcester. She married the love of her life, Gerald (Jerry) Nathanson on July 7, 1965 and raised two great kids, Debra and Michael. Nancy retired from Wing Hospital in 2009 after 20 years as a medical secretary. She had also worked part-time as a waitress for over 20 years at the old Joe’s Drive In and the Sunset Restaurant. Nancy loved baking, especially for friends and family, playing in her garden and beating everyone in scratch ticket “scratch-a-thons” at the holidays. Quite possibly, her favorite pastime was rooting against her family’s beloved Patriots. Nancy is survived by her husband Gerald, her daughter Debra, her son Michael and his wife, Kristie. She is also survived by her brother William Smith and his family of Wells, Maine, her sister Elizabeth Bria and her family of Worcester and her sister Patricia Napoli of Long Island, New York. A service will be held on Tuesday, January 15, 2019 at 11 am at the Second Congregational Church, 1080 Pleasant Street, in Palmer. In lieu of flowers, the family requests making a donation to the charity of your choice.
