ST. JAMES — Ann “Nancy” Barry Harkey, 79, passed away peacefully Thursday, May 2, 2019, at Novant Heath Center surrounded by her loving family.

Nancy was born Feb. 10, 1940, in Springfield, Massachusetts, to the late John C. Barry and Viola R. Barry. Nancy grew up in East Haven, Connecticut, and graduated from East Haven High School. She earned a Bachelor of Science Degree from the School of Nursing at the University of Connecticut.

She raised her four boys in Guilford, Connecticut, where she worked as a nurse at Connecticut Hospice. Nancy retired to St. James in 2005, where she was a very active volunteer, and was once named volunteer of the year for her work in the elementary school. Nancy also volunteered at the North Carolina Maritime Museum at Southport. She was an avid reader, loved traveling and playing Rummikub and Scrabble.

She was preceded in death by her husband Dr. Michael E. Harkey.
