Nancy Hume Cleeland passed away on October 10, 2021, at the age of 88 years. Born in Eagle Pass, Texas, Nancy graduated from Coral Gables High (Miami) and received her Bachelor of Arts from Florida State University in Tallahassee. Nancy was a member of the Tri Delta Sorority and Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society.

Nancy was very proud of her Mexican heritage. Her mother was from Mexico and several of her siblings were born there, so the culture held a special place in her life. She has many cousins and aunts still living in Mexico and always loved going back to visit.

Professionally, Nancy worked as a ticket agent with Pan Am and Eastern Airlines, which afforded her the chance to do some worldwide travel. She went on to teach Spanish at Maclay School in Tallahassee and then worked with the Auditor General’s office of the State of Florida until she retired. Nancy was a devout Catholic and was heavily involved with Good Shepherd Catholic Church. She was also a member of the Tallahassee Garden Club and volunteered giving tours at the Old Capitol. She also enjoyed sewing, arts and crafts, and gardening.

Nancy Cleeland was preceded in death by her parents, Josefina Gonzalez Hume and Allen James Lea Hume; her sisters, Josephine Elizabeth Hume Galindo and Matilde Hume Landrum; and her brother, Lea Hume. She is survived by her daughter, Catherine (Mike) Buckley Ferrara, as well as her brothers John Hume (Barbara) and Evan Borroum Hume (Jacquie).
