Nancy Annette Queen
June 4, 1960 – March 19, 2021
Nancy Annette Queen passed away after a hard-fought battle with cancer on Friday, March 19, 2021. She passed into Heaven comfortably at home surrounded by her loving family and friends. Nancy spent her last day here expressing her love for Jesus and singing His praises. She felt the comfort of knowing that she was going to see her Maw Maw and brother in Heaven, which helped her to prepare to make the journey and be received in God’s forever love. Nancy is remembered dotingly by her family for her uncanny quick wit, outspokenness and no-nonsense attitude. A proud graduate of Garinger High School Class of 1978, Nancy loved watching TV dramas like Monk, telling stories of the past, and listening to different styles of music while devoting her life to taking care of her mother. Nancy was someone who would give you the shirt off her back if you needed it; she believed strongly in sharing all that she had. Nancy’s constant loving presence was a blessing to her family and friends. She was a protector and best friend to her whole family, helping to serve as a surrogate parent as needed to nieces, nephews and friends. Although Nancy did not have an easy road, she made a difference everywhere she could, donating to causes near and dear to her heart like St. Jude’s. Nancy was preceded in death by her father, Thomas Marshall Queen and her brother Ricky Queen. Nancy is survived by her mother, Emily Queen, her sister Kathy Belk, and brother Larry (Kelean) Queen. Nancy spent many hours with her cousin Judy Wilson with whom she was lifelong friends, and Judy’s two kids, Marshall Wilson and Jesse Fink whom she adored. She was a devoted aunt to Bobby and Susan Belk and their children Thomas, Audrey and Lyda Belk. She is also survived by her cousin Debbie Matthews, her niece Emily Jo Queen, and her nephew Ricky Stechman. Nancy’s mother Emily Queen reminisces affectionately “Nancy was a great cook and could make the best snowball cake ever”. Although we have lost Nancy in this world, we all know she is dancing in heaven, happy to no longer be in pain.

Hey little Sister, I miss you so much .I'm gonna miss our chats on the phone and how you would call me when you and Mama had a tiff. I'm sorry I didn't make you a bigger part of my everyday life.You were truly a one of a kind person. I wish I could be as loyal as you. You ask me if I was sure about heaven and now you know I was right. I love you. See you in a little while. I can't wait to be with you again.❤

Nancy, I want to thank you for all the joyous memories we have shared from birth until death. I want to thank you for being there for me, my kids and family. You were the strongest person I have ever met. I want to THANK YOU for teaching me the true meaning of LOVE and FAMILY. People just dont understand how important it is. FAMILY FIRST. I promise I will take care of your mama like you ask me to .I want you to know that you were more than family or even sister to me . You were more like a soul sister to me. I feel like I lost half my soul when you left. I will miss you so much. I LOVE YOU!!!

I Love You and you’ll be missed. I’m thankful that your no longer in pain. I’ll miss you telling me about how Harris Teeter was cheating you. I’ll miss our dinners, Chinese, Showmars and House of Pizza. I’ll miss quoting movie lines together. I’ll miss quoting lines from Friends. Be sure and tell God something for me. Pivot! I love you sis.
