Oct 21, 1923 – June 30, 2013

Nancy was raised in SF & spent her last 30 yrs in Mountain View, but in between she lived in many places. She & her husband, Bill, spent 3 years in Southeast Asia, which she considered a highlight of her life.

Nancy was an avid artist & was part of a Los Altos art class for many years. She was a longtime volunteer for St. Vincent de Paul Society & a Eucharistic Minister at her church. She also made time for painting, hiking, traveling, & her grandchildren. She was enthusiastic, energetic, creative, & playful as well as caring, generous, & kind. Nancy’s health declined dramatically in recent years, but she kept active for as long as she could. She will be missed by many.

Nancy is survived by her children, Tom Brannigan & Kristine Farber; her grandchildren, Seth (Kristy), Luke & Joy Farber; and her great-grandchildren, Maya & Samuel Farber.

A memorial mass will be held at St. Athanasius Church, 160 N. Rengstorff Ave, Mountain View on Tuesday, July 30, at 3:00pm.
