Clarice Dowdy “Chunky” Nash of Hanover County went to be with the Lord on July 21st at the age of 91.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Alfred and Drusie Dowdy; her loving husband, Melvin Nash Sr.; five siblings, Francis, Arthur, Big Bubba, Little Teenie, and Mary Ann.

She leaves behind her son, Melvin Nash, Jr. (Lisa); and six grandchildren, Reid (Kathleen), Brayden (Liesel), Colby (Alex), Tyler, Aaron, and Levi; two great-grandchildren, Madison and Benson; four siblings, Sweet Pea, Shirley, Thelma, and Big Teenie.

Clarice worked for Philip Morris for 40+ years before retiring. In retirement Clarice, fondly known as “Chunky” by most, enjoyed days on the river but most of all she loved time with her family. Her stubborn but loving soul will be missed by all.

The family will receive friends 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. Sunday at the Atlee Chapel, Woody Funeral Home, 9271 Shady Grove Road, Mechanicsville. A graveside service will be conducted 12 p.m. Monday at Signal Hill Memorial Park.

Our thoughts and prayers are with your family at this time. We
remember Chunky as a loving sister to "Joe" and his wife, Evelyn,
who was my aunt . Wilmer, Evelyn's older sister was my mother.
Chunky, about 30 years ago, purchased a rattan porch sofa from
me when my husband and I moved to Mechanicsville. We lived not too far apart at that time. Barbara

We always enjoyed seeing Chunky and remember her as a person who enjoyed laughing and having fun. Our family sends prayers to you also. My mother was Margie, another of Evelyn's
older sisters. Beverly

Aunt Chunk, I can not imagine my life without you, our long talks, crazy car rides and adventures. There will always be a hole in my heart. I love you Chunk. Fly High my beautiful Angel.
