Memories Timeline


  1. With sadness I post this in memory of a wonderful woman. She was not only my friend, she was my “doctor “, my families doctor, my boss , my teacher and encouragement to continue my love of being the best Certified Medical Assistant I could be. She encouraged me to do so much. She loved her husband and her children, always striving to see them happy and encouraging them to live their dreams. She worked tirelessly,always ready anytime of the night to help whoever needed her, whether it was sutures or CPR. She was just the best and man could she cook the best steak and gravy with potatoes in the world. I will always hold her in my ♥️

  2. Sad to hear these Ms Nancy was a sweet lady and she took care of my family when she was doing her doctoring and live going to church with her for many years she will be missed

  3. Andy Heather,Julie Gary sorry about your Mom, I always liked Nancy years back we had fun when we were together. It been a good long time since I have seen her other than when your Dad passed. But can remember years back with Aunt Holly.
    Sorry I want be able to be there, just know I love you all
    Kathy Buie & Family

  4. Nancy was so good to me and my daughter Stephanie. Always there when we needed her. A wonderful lady. God Bless you all.

  5. There are no words to express what’s in my heart…that’s how special and loved she was to my entire family. I’m so grateful I saw her in the past several months & she was doing so well. There are some mighty happy folks welcoming her to Heaven! You’re all in my thoughts and prayers.

  6. Julie, Andy, and Family,
    A mother oak has fallen, and the void looms large. What a wonderful blessing was ours. Nancy was such a dear lady, friend, and servant to our community. The perfect model of the disciple taking Scripture to heart, “In as much as you have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren you have done it unto me.”
    We’re grateful for Nancy and so blessed.
    Julie, you were tenacious on court, all-conference, and regional champion, stacking up multiple wins–and your opponents didn’t mind losing because you did it with a smile, and Andy, your botanical, microbe, and genetics achievements were premier–and you were a joy every day. Both of you have given your parents and the Union Pines family so many reasons to smile.
    Our hearts go out to you.

  7. There are no words to express the sadness in my heart. Nancy lived approximately 2 miles from me when I was growing up. She was my youth leader at Red Branch Baptist Church! She hired me to babysit Andy and Julie, and later to clean her house. She also allowed me to fill in a couple of times at Carthage Medical Clinic when I was in nursing school! After I got married, we made a couple of visits to Sam’s in Fayetteville! We had the best times together. She was my mentor and my friend! We lost track of each other over the years, but reconnected just this last week. I called her at the hospital and she said she had thought about me just the day before. We caught up on a few things, but our two conversations were short as she was weak! She asked me to come see her after she got out of the hospital and I promised her I would! The last words she spoke to me was “I love you!” My heart is heavy!!
    ❤️❤️Andy and Julie, your mother was a true gem, more precious than silver or gold!! My deepest sympathy to both of you and your families!! My how she is going to be missed!😢

  8. Sorry for your loss and knew Nancy for years . She was so good to my dad when he was sick in the early 60’s before he died in 1965.

  14. Just to express condolences to family particularly Julie and Andy at this difficult time. We interacted with Nancy on many occasions in our time in Carthage both under her care and as members of the Rotary club. She was a lovely caring lady to those she knew and the community at large. God bless her and preserve her memory.

  15. Andy and Julie those were some of the best years when we lived besides Nancy and Claytie. They were the best they always look after us just like we were Family. We learned many things from them and we will never forget them nor will we forget watching you two grow up. Love And Prayers
