ALBANY- Nancy Jane Eppelmann, daughter of the late Stillman Fenton Myers and Davia Balfoort Myers passed away peacefully on her mother’s birthday, August 12, 2019 with family by her side at the age of 78.
After being diagnosed at a young age, and suffering its debilitating effects, Nancy was a proud 40-year survivor of breast cancer, allowing her many more years with the friends and family who she cherished and adored.
Nancy was a 1958 graduate of Albany High School and attended Albany Medical School of Nursing.
She was a “stay-at-home” wife and mother who excelled at vegetable gardening (on her neighbor’s farm), knitting, and needlework – leaving many treasured pieces for family and friends. She loved the weekly card games played with her husband Ralph, for whom she was a loving caregiver, twin sister and brother-in-law.
Nancy was predeceased by her infant daughter Carolyn Davia Eppelmann, her parents, in laws Andy and Marie Eppelmann, Carl Eppelmann and Joyce McNabney.
In addition to her loving husband, Ralph, of 58 years, she is survived by her loving son Stephen (late fiancée Lisa Jewel), his children Becky (fiancé Peter Hughes), Cara and Gage Eppelmann, loving son John (Christine) and their children Zephra, Marlee, and Lauren Ford. Also surviving are two loving sisters Penny (Roy) Stone, twin and best friend Carol (Andre) Corona, sister in law Ann Eppelmann, brother in law John (Lucy) McNabney and many loving nieces and nephews, lifelong friend Vi McKaig, and the caring friends and neighbors of Roessleville Presbyterian Church and Stonehenge Garden Apartments.
Relatives and friends are invited to attend her calling hours on Thursday, August 15, 2019 from 4 to 7 p.m. at New Comer Cremations & Funerals, 181 Troy Schenectady Road, Watervliet, New York 12189. All are invited to attend her funeral service at the funeral home on Friday at 10 a.m. Interment will be next to her daughter Carolyn at Bethlehem Cemetery, Delmar, New York.
