Nancy Ellen (Plante) Workman, 77, went home to the Lord on September 23, 2021. She was born in Webster, Massachusetts on July 18, 1944, to Napoleon and Angelina “Julia” (Rizzo) Plante. She attended Bartlett High School, where she was active in many clubs and organizations. She graduated from Annhurst College, in Connecticut with a bachelor’s degree in Sociology with Honors. Nancy loved to travel and visited many countries during her lifetime. She retired from human resources for the Federal Government in San Diego, California.
Nancy married Delbert A. Workman on January 24, 1981. She gained a large extended family where she attended many happy gatherings. They enjoyed many exciting adventures during 36 years of marriage including trips to Europe and the Holy Land until her health prevented it.
She will be remembered for her strength, courage, and quick wit. Nancy loved God, children, her family, and friends with all her heart. We will miss her beautiful smile and her frequent phone calls.
Nancy is survived by her sister Judi Haggerty (Brian); two stepdaughters, Geri A. Yost (Derrick Yoder) and Gayle Worthington (Mark); Grandchildren: Ryan Yost (Amanda), Heather Wells, Lynette Wenhardt (Matthew), and Travis Wells; Great Grandsons: Andrew, Tyler, Carter, and Ryan Wenhardt; nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents and her husband Del.
Her daughters and family would like to send a special thank you to her caring hospice team, compassionate caregivers, and faithful friends and family that brought so much joy, laughs, and life to Nancy in her years when she was not able to leave her room. You shared your heart and lives with her and we know she deeply appreciated each and every one of you. Your voices always brought the most beautiful smile to her face. We are so grateful for these precious moments you shared with her.
In honor of her last request there will be no formal service, large gathering, or Celebration of Life. Please add your stories and photos to the Tribute Wall.
The family will be planting a tree in memory of Del and Nancy Workman to ensure their legacy will be deeply rooted for generations to come.
