Nancy Carol Matthews, beloved daughter of the late Russell Otis Matthews and Annie Poulson Matthews, was born on October 19, 1934 in Accomack County, Virginia. She departed this life on Sunday, September 20, 2020 at Shore Health and Rehab Center in Parksley, Virginia.

Nancy attended school in Onancock, Virginia, where she received her formal education. She joined Metropolitan United Methodist Church in Onancock, Virginia, where she accepted Christ as her personal savior.

Nancy made friends easily throughout her lifetime, especially while discovering treasures at local yard sales and thrift stores. Many of her fondest memories were created at Eastern Shore Seafood and in the Bayside community, where she resided and worked for most of her life. Those memories will be cherished by all she leaves behind.

In addition to her parents, Nancy is preceded in death by her son, Donald Matthews, Sr.; sister, Pauline Matthews Watson; brother-in-law, Jake Watson; half-sister, Emma Ames; and half-brother, Freddie Bailey.

She is survived by her three daughters, Robin Matthews, Sandra Matthews, both of Glen Allen, VA, and Pauline Matthews-Milbourne of Parksley, VA; grandchildren, Monica (Aaron) Dickerson of Parksley, VA, Donald (Edwyne) Matthews, Jr., Veronica Matthews, Eric (Tammy) Matthews, all of Long Island, NY, Shonica (John) Coleman of Smithfield, VA, Rhea Matthews of Radford, VA, and Ciara Matthews of Glen Allen, VA; daughter-in-law, Valda Spratley Matthews of Smithfield, VA; and a host of other relatives and friends.
