Nancy Lee Handley

March 14, 1951 — September 6, 2023

Nancy Lee Handley, a beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, passed away peacefully at her home on September 6, 2023. Born on March 14, 1951, in Gettysburg, PA, to the late Max and Helen Ruth Sherman, Nancy was a cherished member of her community and a beacon of love and joy to her loved ones.

Nancy was a dedicated professional with a career spanning several decades in banking and customer service. Her exceptional work ethic and commitment to her clients made her a respected figure in her field. Her colleagues admired her for her conscientiousness and her ability to handle any situation with grace and a touch of her signature wit.

Education was a significant part of Nancy's life. She was a proud high school graduate who valued knowledge and encouraged the same enthusiasm in her children and grandchildren. Her wisdom and life experiences often served as a guide for those around her, making her a source of inspiration and strength.

Nancy was a woman of many passions. She loved her family fiercely and found great joy in spending time with them. Her laughter was contagious, and her love was abundant. She enjoyed dancing, a hobby that showcased her free spirit and love of life. Walks on the beach were a favorite pastime, where she found peace in the rhythm of the waves and the feel of the sand beneath her feet.

Nancy had a special fondness for unicorns and angels, symbols of magic and hope that reflected her optimistic outlook on life. She was a big fan of Elvis, his music often filling her home and serving as the soundtrack to many family gatherings. Known for her witty sarcasm, Nancy had a unique way of making people laugh and feel at ease.

Nancy is lovingly remembered by her daughters, Carrie Lee Hudson (Michael Hudson), Samantha Mattie Garner; her granddaughters, Cierra Michelle Hudson, Chelsea Ruth Aste, Isabelle Madison Garner; grandsons, Joshua Michael Garner, Tristan Michael Hudson; great-granddaughter, Lilly Kathleen Van-Vida; and great grandsons, Hudson Tyler Aste, Jonathan Loris Aste, Jaxon Reid Aste. She was predeceased by her parents, Max and Helen Ruth Sherman; her sister, Edwina Bankston; and her daughter, Michelle Ann Bracewell.

The words that best describe Nancy are loving, thoughtful, and spirited. She was a woman who lived her life with passion, kindness, and a touch of sass. Her memory will forever be etched in the hearts of those who had the privilege of knowing her. Nancy's spirit, her love, and her wisdom will continue to guide her family and friends, serving as a comforting reminder of a life well-lived.

The world is a little less bright without Nancy, but her light continues to shine in the lives of those she touched. She was a remarkable woman, and her legacy of love, family, and joy will be cherished and remembered always. Farewell, Nancy Lee Handley, until we meet again.
