Nancy Thompson Herman, of Links O' Tryon, passed away at home peacefully into the arms of her Lord and Savior with her loving husband, Thomas Herman, by her side on Friday morning October 1, 2021, after courageously enduring a two year battle with cancer.
Mrs. Herman was a native of Fingerville, SC and the daughter of the late Bud Morrow and Georgia Morrow Ezell. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her first husband, Raymond K. Thompson who passed away on July 11, 2006.
Nancy is survived by her loving husband, Thomas Herman of the home. She is also survived by Toms daughter and son in law, Gina and Kyle Tyner; and their daughter and son in law, Lian and Ryan King along with their children Jude, Nora and Ella Rose. Nancy is also survived by a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends, several of whom she cherished since her childhood and were like her family.
Nancy was a graduate of Boiling Springs High School. She retired from the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles working the majority of her career in the Spartanburg Department and later accepting a transfer to the Myrtle Beach Department as Manager.
Nancy loved her days in church at Fingerville Methodist, at Reidville Road Methodist, and was a member of Liberty United Methodist Church, Landrum, SC. It was a Liberty that Nancy met a fine gentleman named Thomas Herman. It was at Liberty that they were married on May 9, 2009.
Nancy was a happy person by nature and greeted everyone she met with a genuine smile. She loved her family and over the years, enjoyed hosting many family reunions and special holidays. She and Tom shared a love of travel and made many trips to Myrtle Beach, Florida and California.
Nancy enjoyed gardening as one of her hobbies. It didn't take Tom long long to find himself enjoying planting anything Nancy wanted to see growing in their yard. Tom knew just what to do because the flowers turned out picture perfect and the tomato plants grew as tall as Tom.
As we say goodbye to our beloved Nancy and cherish our memories of her, let us remember the beautiful lesson in life that she has taught us with her beautiful, elegant and graceful spirit. Let us feel the love and joy she bestowed upon us. Nancy, you lived peacefully in front of us, you were patient with us, you were always spreading kindness and goodness to us and everyone you met. And with Tom by your side throughout your devastating illness, you showed us how to be faithful, how to be gentle and most of all how to have self-control with things we cannot change.
Nancy Jane....we love you, we will miss you, and we will see you again someday in our Heavenly Home.
