Peacefully passed on Thursday, May 18, 2023, with family by her side at Matthews House Hospice in Alliston, at the age of 66 years. Beloved wife for 40 years of Edward Rooney. Cherished mother of Jenna (Ethan) and David. Proud “Gamma” of Lillian and Jack. Dear sister of Andrew (Jae) and Doug (Pin). Much loved by her in-laws, Michael (Nancy), Rosann (Wes), Mary (Barry), Colleen, Caroline (Ray), and numerous nieces and nephews. Predeceased by parents, Barbara and Robert Shaw, and brother in-law, Louis (Audrey).
Nancy will be remembered for her strong will, love of people (evidenced by her 34 photo albums), and forever starting the dance party. Despite her immediate family calling it “101 questions”, she had a beautiful ability to connect with others and loved to listen to their life stories. Family memories in Caledon included fireworks, Dinner Club, euchre parties and her book (wine) club. Nancy was happiest spending the day by the water, camping, hiking, and golfing.
The family would like to send a special thank you to the teams at Headwaters Health – especially Ruth and Dr. B, the team at HPCT Southlake – especially Somayeah, and the teams at TGH and Matthews House.
The family will receive their friends at the Egan Funeral Home, 203 Queen St. S. (Hwy 50), Bolton (905-857-2213) on Thursday, June 1 from 2-4 p.m. and 6–8 p.m. Memorial Service will be held at St. John the Evangelist Roman Catholic Church, 16066 The Gore Rd., Caledon on Friday, June 2 at 12:30 p.m. Reception will be held at The Royal Ambassador, 15430 Innis Lake Rd., Caledon on Friday, June 2 at 2:00 p.m. – Colourful attire encouraged.
