Published 4:18 pm Saturday, June 3, 2017

Nancy Joy Pritchard, 59, of Port Neches passed away on Thursday, June 1, 2017.

The greatest thing one can give of themselves is their self. As a devoted wife, loving mother, proud grandmother, and caring friend, Nancy remained true to the simple adage of it’s nice to be nice and always put others before herself. In Nancy’s passing, we lost an angel that walked with us on earth, but gained an angel who will continue to watch over us all.

As a lifelong resident of Port Neches, every turn, every street reminds us of her. She will live on in our hearts and memories. Her radiant smile, joy and laughter will help guide us on our own journeys through life.
