Nancy L. McCormick, age 86, of Omaha, passed away peacefully April 4, 2019 at Brookstone Meadows. She was born April 5, 1932 in Malone, New York to Edward and Minnie Clark. She is preceded in death by her husband Tom, brothers Fred and Pat Clark, and granddaughter Shannon McCormick.
Nancy received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Syracuse University, New York. After graduation she worked as the director of nurses at Syracuse hospital. She then met and married the love of her life Tom on May 4, 1957. They were married for 53 years. They raised 6 children together. When the children were all in school, Nancy resumed her career as a nurse. She worked at the Visiting Nurses Association for a few years and then worked as a school nurse at Omaha Public schools for 19 years. Besides work, Nancy was involved in the Marianist Community at Gross High School and worked as a volunteer at Bergan Mercy Hospital, The Stephen Center, and St. Bernadette Catholic Church. Nancy was also an Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist and would deliver Communion to those people unable to attend Mass.
Nancy and Tom enjoyed their time together traveling and took many trips all over the world with family and friends. Nancy loved people. She loved to socialize, and everyone she met commented that she made them feel special. Nancy developed a very long list of lifetime friends. What she loved most was her big beautiful family. She loved her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren so much that each one of them thought they were her favorite. She would take all the grandchildren to the Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo where a plaque was donated in hers and Tom’s honor for the elephant complex. Nancy took great pride in having her family get together for holiday dinners and backyard barbecues.
Nancy thrived during her years at Maple Ridge Retirement Community. She enjoyed socializing with her friends. Nancy was a popular figure at the Maple Ridge Friday night events. Often times her grandchildren would come join her at happy hour or Bingo and join in the sing-alongs. In her free time, she loved to read romance novels, play bridge and Bingo, and she recently learned how to play the card game of pitch.
