Nancy Sue Pickard, 60, of Nederland, Texas, passed away on April 5, 2016 at Harbor Hospice surrounded by family after courageously battling with cancer for 8 months. She was born in Port Acres, Texas, to Enola and Lizay “Pop-Pop” Romero and graduated from Stephen F. Austin High School in 1973.


Nancy married her soulmate, Dr. Robert Pickard Jr., and they were happily married for 38 years. She worked with Robert at his dental office in Port Arthur as the office manager, assistant, and receptionist. Nancy and Robert have two children, Dr. Lance Pickard, 32, and Dr. Brenna Pickard, 29, who were her biggest joys in life. After retirement, bragging on her children became her new career. When Nancy wasn’t working or pulling pranks on everyone, she enjoyed working in her flower bed, making casino trips, traveling with her family, working at her church, St. Theresa Little Flower, and playing cards.  Nancy lived her life to the fullest and had a glowing personality that kept everyone around her smiling.
