Nancy Ann Dunlay
It is with profound sadness that the family of Nancy Ann Dunlay announce her passing on March 29, 2017 at the Dr. Everett Chalmers Hospital. Nancy was born on July 25, 1959 at the Victoria Public Hospital in Fredericton to the late Thomas and Martha (Hagerman) Wall.
Nancy is survived by her husband Alan; her daughter Julie (Adam); two sisters Diana MacDonald (Eric), Donna Brown (Gary); nieces Natalie, Jennifer (Sheldon), Beth (Kathryn); granddaughter Savannah; great niece Blakely; brother-in-law Mark Dunlay; aunts and uncles and her beloved companion "Kayla"
Nancy worked at Wood Motors Ford for over 32 years up until a debilitating stroke she suffered on February 1 of 2012. It was our wish that she remain at home for as long as she could, however as time went on, she began to lose her battle with many setbacks but not for lack of determination. Nancy was very forward and outspoken that anyone who knew her could attest to.
Nancy and I spent a lot of beautiful summer day’s boating on the Mactaquac Headpond and kayaking on the Bay of Fundy with Kayla of course. Nancy’s "Happy Place" was to visit Grand Manan Island every summer.
The family wish to thank everyone that helped in Nancy’s illness over the years starting with her family, friends, co-workers, neighbours, her family doctor and his staff, to DECH doctors, nurses, technician, in the ER, ICU, X-Ray, speech language as well as Social Workers and Paramedics, staff of 3E, 4W, 4NW, 4SW, 4SE, doctors and staff of Stan Cassidy Centre for Rehabilitation, Bayshore Home Care, Extra Mural Program. Some may not think it was much they did but it was well appreciated. To Wood Motors Management for tolerating my extended periods of absence. I did not mention any specific names for those people who looked after Nancy as I would mean no disrespect to anyone I left out. You are all well thanked and finally to Nancy for being my "go to person", my best friend and my wife, you will always be remembered and forever loved. Thanks for all the memories.
Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her mother-in-law Eileen Dunlay; several aunts and uncles.
As per Nancy’s request, there will be no visitation or service. A private graveside service will take place in the Alexander Gibson Memorial Cemetery, Fredericton, NB at a later date.
For those wishing to make a donation in Nancy’s memory, please consider the NB Heart and Stroke Foundation, any local animal shelter or your choice of charity.
