October 29, 1930 - January 5, 2021
Nancy Magnusson passed away on January 5 and has now joined her Mom, Dad and loving husband Carl of 50 years. Nancy grew up in Chicago (attending Morton HS), graduated from the University of Illinois where she became a member of Kappa Delta sorority and successfully competed in synchronized swimming. After spending 30+ years in Pittsburgh and raising their 3 daughters, they were ready for some sunshine so they retired in Naples. Nancy was a good athlete, game to give any sport a try. She enjoyed tennis but loved golf and even gave windsurfing a try. She was always very creative, an avid sewer and beader who loved to share her beautiful creations with her family and friends. She was also very competitive and never “let” her children or grandchildren win a card or board game. Her favorite games were bridge and domino’s and so enjoyed playing with her friends every week. Happy hour could never start before 5:00, but was never missed. Saturday’s were dinner with WOWs and when family members visited, they had the honor of being included in the exclusive WOW dinner club. We were able to celebrate her 90th birthday this year with a drive-by party, thanks to Dini. Neighbors and friends visited her until the end and that brought her and her family such joy and comfort. She is survived by her daughters Debbie (Jeff) Graves, Joan Magnusson and Carol (Victor) Borrelli; grandchildren Tyler ( Brittany) Graves, Amy ( Rod) Crousey, Casey Graves, Lauren Borrelli, Kate Borrelli and 6 great grandchildren. There will not be a service at this time but we will be planning a party to celebrate her life in the near future. In her honor, please practice a random act of kindness, wear a mask and stay safe.
