OBITUARY

Anne T. Uff

January 20, 1946December 24, 2020

Anne Uff (Nancy), beloved mother, Nana, sister, aunt, daughter, died on December 24, 2020. A spirited individual, Nancy was loved by those who knew her for her quick wit, her stubborn streak, and her ability to love.

She is survived by four daughters (Anne/Missy, Amanda [Paul], LeAnne, and Stacey [Joey]), seven grandchildren (Hannah, Daulton, Dylan, Linus, Bennett, Alex, Emilia), and five brothers (Valentine [Helen], Joseph [Eileen], Thomas, Robert [Virginia], Kevin [Sharon]). Born on January 20, 1946, Nancy was preceded in death by her parents, Valentine and Anne, her son Timothy, and her brothers, Charles and Michael.

A graduate of West Catholic High School in Philadelphia, Nancy went on to earn several associate degrees from Camden County College later on in her life. She held a wide range of jobs over her life, from the first female teller at Atlantic City Racetrack to running a grocery to managing an after school program. She was always occupied, whether it be as a nanny or a bingo shark at her apartment complex.

Nancy was never without a sassy quip, a kind word, or well-timed barb. She left an impression everywhere she went. She was a woman of prodigious strength, surviving loss and strife in her life. She supported her son in his battles with addiction, while raising four daughters and being a present Nana to her beloved grandchildren.

Her loss is felt keenly by those who loved her. We can only hope that she is at peace with her loved ones or swimming amongst her favorite animal, the turtle, in her version of whatever comes next.

“And the turtles, of course all the turtles are free, as turtles and, maybe, all creatures should be.” - Dr. Seuss

She’ll always have a special place in my heart. She welcomed my “hi mama” as “hey you” and put up with my sass. I’ll miss arguing with her about cigarettes. I’ll miss her constant presence at celebrations. I’ll miss her laugh. But most of all I’ll miss being called “brat” in a way only a best friend’s Mom could. 💜❤️

My nana loved to come see me at work being that it was only 5 minutes from her apartment. She would come in, order two entrees *to go* with all of the sides, soup/salad, and routinely say: “This will last me two weeks!” I knew she was never there for the food, just any excuse to spend time with me. This type of thing was a reflection of the unconditional love I have felt from her since I knew what love was. I will never forget it.
