Nancy Jane Moran

July 18, 1934 - January 16, 2009

After a valiant struggle with cancer, Nancy passed away at her home in Lincoln on January 16, 2009. With her beloved husband, Tom, by her side, Nancy passed peacefully in the early morning.

Originally from Minneapolis, MN, Nancy worked as a secretary for Honeywell, where she met Tom before he joined the Navy. Deeply in love, Nancy and Tom married in 1956 and embarked on a 22 year journey taking them all over the country. Being a model Navy wife and mother, Nancy unwaveringly stood by Tom’s side throughout his Naval career.

Upon Tom’s retirement from the Navy, Nancy and Tom enjoyed a very active life in Sunnyvale before moving to Lincoln in 2000. Nancy’s love of Bridge and delight in entertaining attracted a grand arrangement of fantastic friends.

Nancy’s warm heart and sweet smile made her adored by many. A devoted wife, wonderful mother, caring grandmother and extraordinarily gracious friend, Nancy will truly be missed.

Survived by her husband of 52 years Thomas J. Moran, Lincoln; son Kevin T. Moran, Memphis, TN; and two grandchildren Elizabeth, Cupertino, Ca; and Brandon, Memphis, TN. A funeral mass will be held on Saturday, March 14th, 10:30am at St. Peter & Paul Catholic Church, 4450 Granite Drive, Rocklin, CA. Donations in Nancy’s honor should be sent to Sutter Hospice, Attn: Foundation, 1836 Sierra Gardens Dr. #130, Roseville, CA 95661 or the American Cancer Society. Following the service, Nancy’s Party will be at Orchard Creek Lodge, 965 Orchard Creek Lane, Lincoln, starting at 12:00pm.
