Nancy M. Palmer of New Hampton, NY, entered into rest on Tuesday, February 26, 2019 with her family by her side. She was 56.
The daughter of the late Walter Naugle his wife Joan Martin Naugle & Florence Lappetito Naugle, she was born on September 10, 1962 in Goshen, NY.
Nancy had presence, easily filling a room with her mood. She was a warm hug, a big smile, an unmistakable laugh and the serene feeling of safety. Loving, nurturing, lively and passionate, family meant everything. Family was inclusive for her. More than her own children knew her as “Mom”. She doted on good friends almost as much as her menagerie of spoiled pets. Nothing brought Nancy more joy than being with her children, grandchildren and husband Chris. Nancy loved making memories, whether it was organizing a family dinner, investigating ghost stories or planning a large family trip. She lived for the experiences large and small, chatting and laughing the whole way. A conversation always seemed easy. All her inspiration was put into her handcrafted cards and scrapbooks made during Crops, surrounded by friends. Her works are beautiful treasures to share and preserve her life, memory, and experiences. Nancy had a connection to this world, to the people she met, that few possess. Tough, quirky, energetic, warm and incredible. She will be dearly missed.
She is survived by her husband, Christopher R. Palmer; son, Joseph Schuk & wife Sheila; son, Justin Schuk & wife Melissa; daughter, Nicole Palmer; granddaughter, Vivian Schuk; step grandson Alex Motter; brother, Kenneth Naugle & husband Nicholas Carroll; stepbrother, Dave Fenner & wife Michelle; along with several nieces, nephews & cousins.
