Nancy McClymonds, 50, of Fayetteville finished her earthly pilgrimage and entered into her eternal home in heaven at 4:22 AM,  Thursday, March 6, 2014 at Willard Walker Hospice Home. She was born to the late Pasquale Brienza and Onorina DePaola Brienza June 10, 1963 in Howard Beach, Queens, New York.

    Dear Rocco and Carmela,

    It is with much sadness and a heavy heart that I post this condolence for Nancy. I have so many fond memories of the times we all spent together during the summers when we visited or you came to visit us here in Canada. I know that Nancy is in the loving arms of your grandparents, parents, and brother now. Hopefully, that makes this painful loss somewhat easier to bear. I will always remember her as pretty, funny, sweet, and with a very big heart. I always admired her. I’m thinking of you all and of her family, and have you all in my prayers. God Bless.

    Dearest McClymonds and Brienza families,
    It was with a very heavy heart that we received the news of Nancy’s passing. Raymond and I have many cherished memories of a close relationship with Nancy and her family. We often broke bread together at their home and ours. We played Bocce Ball and enjoyed being competitive and laughed our way through the games. We came together as an extended family in good times and in times of sorrow. We attended celebrations together including Nancy and Tim’s wedding day and we grieved together over the loss of loved ones.
    The passing of Nancy impacts many lives in many ways.
    We pray that the knowledge that Nancy’s is now with our Lord will bring you all comfort. Nancy is once again whole and because of her acceptance of Jesus has gained salvation and eternal life.
    We know that she will be missed daily and we pray our Lord gives you all the grace each of you need.
    Nancy will always have her own special room in our heart of hearts because that’s where we keep our valuables.
