Dr. Nancy was born on December 5, 1946 in New Brighton, a daughter of the late Carl and Helen (Staszko) Spadafore. Nancy married the love of her life, Terry Alberts, on June 5, 1965. Nancy always said they held hands to “Hold Each Other Up.” Nancy graduated in 1979 from the University of Pittsburgh Medical School, thus fulfilling her lifelong dream of becoming a Medical Doctor. She was a member of New Hope Church and received such joy from her involvement in various groups at the church, including singing in the choir, Bible Study and as a mentor.

Nancy's paternal grandparents (Spadafore) were from Italy and maternal (Staszko) grandparents were from Ukraine. Nancy's love for baking came from both of her grandmothers. Nancy lived with her Ukrainian grandparents after her parents moved back from Palm Beach, Florida to Ambridge in the late 1950s. Nancy shared many stories of our Ukrainian grandparents with me. Nancy will be missed by everyone.

To the Family of Nancy Alberts;


There is a great emptiness left by Nancy’s passing, but I am certain that the strength of the love that her family shares for each other and for Nancy will get you through this difficult time.

May that love honor her memory and may you cherish the time you had together.

I especially remember Nancy’s gentle spirit and loving nature. She will always be remembered as an especially giving person of great character, a dedicated Doctor to her patients, a loving wife and mother.

Nancy touched many lives’ during her time we all shared with her on earth, and those are memories we won’t soon forget.


Know that death is not an end, but a transition to a place free of pain and suffering. The word of God reminds us in 2nd Timothy 4:7-8, “I have fought a good fight, finished the course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto
all them also that love His appearing.”

Know that God has loaned her to you for many years and has now afforded her a home on high.

Sincerely,

Elder Darold Forbes

Nancy was my first cousin, our mothers were sisters. Nancy and her husband Terry were my role models when I was growing up. They always were kind to everyone.

Nancy’s father had a stroke when she was in college. Nancy took a full time job as a systems analyst at Mellon Bank to support parents. Nancy still earned her bachelors degree.

Nancy and Terry got married young, many people said it would never last. Nancy and Terry celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary.

Nancy became a physician at age 30. The entire family was so proud of her. The role of physician never went to her head. Nancy remained down to earth.

Dr. Nancy Alberts delivered me into this world. She was the first person to tell my parents I had Spina Bifida. I saw her often at New Hope Evangelical Church & I will miss her very much.
