Nancy A. (Anger) Connor
May 26, 1949 – September 3, 2019
Nancy A. Connor (Anger), age 70, passed away Tuesday, September 3, 2019, following a brief illness. She was the adored wife of the late Gerard M. “Jerry” Connor to whom she was married a beautiful 45 years, and was the loving mother of the late Gerard S. “Jerry” Connor. Nancy and her husband Jerry were also the owners of two late dogs “Sammy” and “Pumpkin” who they cherished dearly and cared for the two dogs for 18+ years.
Born in Providence, RI a daughter of the late Irving B. and Dorothy (Burke) Anger, she was a life-long resident of Swansea.
A graduate of Joseph Case High School, Class of 1967, she attended Bristol Community College in the early childhood education program, and attended a Licensed Practical Nurse Curriculum at the Diman Regional Vocational Technical School. Over her lifetime, Nancy was a stay at home Mom, later worked full time with developmentally disabled clients, and in later years enjoyed closely working with her daughter at her daughter’s law office. She was also a parishioner of Saint Dominic’s Church in Swansea, and attended mass on Sunday mornings.
Nancy shared a strong wonderful marriage with her husband, Jerry. He was her rock. They enjoyed traveling, going on cruises, enjoying dinners out, and spending time with their friends/family. After her Husband’s passing in 2014, Nancy developed an even stronger bond with her daughter, Dorothy. Nancy was an extremely outgoing person who conducted herself as a social butterfly and lit up a room with her smile and excellent sense of humor. She loved to go shopping, dine out, and just spend time watching movies and television programs with her daughter, especially when her grand dogs were present-George, Rocco, Tony, and Baby Girl. Nancy was always there for her daughter through good times and illness. During the last few years of her life, Nancy had a best friend “Ted” who she spoke on the phone with multiple times per day and enjoyed his company immensely. Nancy was a phenomenal mother to Jerry and Dorothy, a nurturing-pet mom to Sammy and Pumpkin, and a supportive loyal friend to many. She was a strong and courageous woman. These traits especially came through when battling her illnesses and supporting/caring for her daughter.
