Nancy Condit McCormick, 87, died at Trinity Grove in Wilmington on Saturday, May 7, 2016, surrounded by her family.

Nancy was born in Buffalo, N.Y. on June 13, 1928, daughter of the late George and Dorothy Condit. Nancy always wanted to be a nurse; she enrolled in Syracuse University at age 16 and earned a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Nursing. She later received a degree from Columbia Teacher’s College. Once her children were older, Nancy attended Rutgers University to become a pediatric nurse practitioner. She was part of one of the first graduating classes of nurse practitioners in New Jersey at the time, an accomplishment of which her family is very proud.

Nancy was married to James McCormick, and they raised three children in Ardsley, N.Y., and Westfield, N.J. Nancy loved being a mother and grandmother. She leaves a big part of herself in her three children and their families.

After James died in 1996, Nancy moved to Pinehurst to be near her sister, Barbara, and her husband, Howard. After retiring, Nancy enjoyed spending time with her family, volunteer work, gardening and reading.

Nancy is survived by her three children, Nancy, and her husband, Paul, of Seal Harbor, Maine; Jim, and his wife, Anne, of Barrington, R.I.; and Betsy, and her husband, Charlie, of Wilmington. Nancy loved and was very proud of her grandchildren, Nina, Clare, Sam, Ben, Eva, Patrick and Joe.Her family meant the world to her. She is survived by her sister, Barbara Todd, and her husband, Howard; and her brothers, Ward and Tom Condit. Her brother, Buddy, died in 1982.

Nancy spent her last months at Trinity Grove, a place where she found excellent care, comfort, love, support and a culture of strong faith. The staff always went above and beyond to meet her needs. Nancy and her family will be forever grateful for the kind and loving care she received there.

Nancy will be laid to rest next to her husband, James, in Westfield, N.J. A service will be planned at a later date.
