Nancy Jean Nixon, passed away on October 9, 2023, at the age of 61. Born on December 19, 1961, in Charleston, SC, Nancy was the beloved daughter of Bonnie Martin Nixon and the late John C. Nixon.

Nancy's unwavering dedication to her family defined her life. As a devoted mother, she cherished her daughter, Amanda Pye, and embraced the role of Nana with joy and pride for her granddaughters, Savanna Owens and Addison Yates.
