Nancy H. Craddock
October 18, 1924 – April 14, 2018
Nancy Hopkins Craddock passed away peacefully on April 14th, 2018 at Lakewood Village in Fort Worth, Texas.
A graduate of Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, Massachusetts where she majored in botany. Nancy was a talented gardener, artist and cook. She was a member of the Fort Worth Garden Club and volunteered at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History for over 20 years.
One of her special passions was bookbinding, so much so that she opened a studio in her own home where she restored precious books and bibles.
Nancy met the love of her life, William Perry Craddock Jr., at a garden party in 1946 and they later married in 1948 in Fort Sill, Oklahoma. After her husband passed on August 24th, 2015, Nancy lived the remainder of her life at Lakewood Village where she was cared for and loved.
Nancy is survived by her daughter Margaret R. Craddock-Schneider and her son-in-law Charles F. Schneider of Exton, PA as well as her sister Mary Elizabeth Eisenberg of Phoenix, AZ and Santa Fe, NM.
The visitation for Nancy will be at Shannon Rose Hill Funeral Home Fort Worth, on Thursday April 19, 2018 from 6:00 – 7:30 pm. Graveside service will be Friday April 20, 2018 at Dallas Fort Worth National Cemetery.

Ms. Craddock was such a positive and curious person. She was incredibly gracious to me as a friend and neighbor of Maggie's. Ms. Craddock had a keen intellect and encouraged me to engage in the Museum's creative arts program - something I would never have otherwise done. The fruit of that experience was a lifelong love of arts and crafts. I think of her when I see clay crafts at fairs because she would praise my clay "works of art" even though they could have easily been confused for poorly formed door stops. She will be missed.
