(Alice) Nancy Johnson passed away peacefully on New Years Eve, just 6 days shy of her 100th birthday.
Nancy grew up in the Main South Neighborhood of Worcester, daughter of Walter and Mary (Beauregard) Brown. She graduated from South High and Framingham State (Teachers) College. She married the love of her life, Francis E. Johnson (Buster) in 1947. Together they raised their 4 children in West Boylston and then spent many wonderful years vacationing in St. Augustine and living in East Harwich before moving back to West Boylston to be closer to their expanding family. There they enjoyed cheering on their numerous grandchildren in their many activities. After 68 years of marriage, Fran passed away in 2015.
Nancy was devoted to her 4 children and their families: Robert and Deborah Johnson and their three daughers Andrea, Lauren and Britta; Linda and Peter Hollis and their two sons John and Mark; Paula and Michael Pucko and their children Adrienne, Nolan and Michael; and Debra and Steven Dame and their two sons Christopher and Adam. Fran and Nancy were proud to have 16 great grand children as well as many nieces and nephews. Nancy enjoyed camping, traveling, bowling, knitting and watching the Red Sox. She was also a member of Our Lady of Good Counsel Church.
Nancy was predeceased by her husband Francis and her siblings Annie Mae, Connie and Jake (Walter).
The family would like to give sincere thanks to the wonderful care team at the Oakdale Nursing Home where Nancy resided for the past year.
Funeral services will be held privately at a later date.
