On Nov. 13, 2018, Nancy Corazza Jones climbed the stairway to heaven to join her husband Ron, parents, brother J. Donald Corazza, and other family and friends who have passed on.
She was a vibrant 91 years when she left this world.
Nancy was born in Wilmington and graduated from Henry C. Conrad High School. In her many years on earth, she worked in retail before becoming a devoted wife, mother, and homemaker. After her children were older, Nancy worked at Buster Brown textiles, from which she retired.
She had a joy for life, a great sense of humor, and loved to laugh with family and friends. After becoming a widow in her 50s, she moved to Lewes for almost 20 years, then moved to Smyrna to be closer to family and friends and was a member of the Smyrna Presbyterian Church.
Nancy was an excellent cook her entire life; nothing made her happier than to see smiles on the faces of family and friends while eating her Dot Abbott cookies and other wonderful baked goods. She lived a full life up to the end.
She leaves behind her children and spouses--Gary Jones (Marilyn), Rhonda Malin (Richard), Glenn Jones (Keith Steck), Gregg Jones (Sue)--and 8 grandchildren and spouses, 10 great grandchildren; and other family and friends, including devoted friend Jane Vogelsang now of Cincinnati.
A viewing and funeral will take place Wednesday, November 21st, at the Gracelawn Memorial Park at 2220 North DuPont Highway in New Castle. The viewing will start at 10am in the chapel followed by her burial beside her husband in the cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions in Nancy’s memory to either American Heart Association at www.donatenow.heart.org or to Compassionate Care Hospice, 20165 Office Circle, Suite 2, Georgetown, DE 19947.
