Nancy Marie Myers was born to Nora Bullard Smith and the late Dan Henry Griffin of Camden County on Nov. 6, 1962.
Nancy received her formal education in both Camden County and in Jacksonville, Florida. On April 23, 1982, she was joined in holy matrimony to the love of her life, Thomas C. Myers Jr. This union was blessed with two children and two grandchildren; all of whom she tremendously loved and cherished. Nancy accepted Christ at an early age.
While admiring all things beautiful, Nancy developed a love for making others beautiful. She continued her education by receiving a bachelor’s degree in cosmetology, becoming a master cosmetologist from the University of North Florida in Jacksonville, Florida.
Nancy practiced her craft of cosmetology for over 20 years in Camden County and beyond. Nancy also served Camden’s children as she worked for Camden County Schools’ extended day program. She was known for her beautiful smile, grace and calming spirit, and she displayed this in everything that she touched.
Nancy departed this life on Saturday, May 30. She was preceded in death by her precious daughter, Delicia Chanel Myers, and her grandparents, James and Nancy Griffin and Caesar and Daisy Bullard, who both had a hand in raising young Nancy. She was also preceded in death by her father in law, Thomas C. Myers Sr., and her loving aunt, Eloise Cohen, who later raised Nancy as a teen in Jacksonville.
