Nancy Hancock McGahey

Nancy Hancock McGahey, 73, passed away on Wednesday, August 15, 2018, at Winston Medical Center Hospital in Louisville, Mississippi.

Nancy was born May 1, 1945, to Marshall and Nina Crocker Hancock. She attended Zion Chapel Pentecostal Church. After 28 years, Nancy retired from Mississippi State University in the Dairy Department as a bookkeeper. Her greatest passion was her grandchildren and she loved to shop!

Nancy is survived by her husband of 57 years, Ronald McGahey of Louisville. One of her greatest joys was being “Grandmother” to her six grandchildren: Samantha McGahey; Leslie McGahey; Lauren Devine (Dustin); Mia McGahey; Marsha Reed; and Anthony Reed; as well as her four great-grandchildren: John Wyatt Pierce, Ronald Jaxon Pierce, Ethan Devine, and Ronald Gene McGahey. She also leaves behind to mourn her passing three sisters, Gladys Holder; Doris Jones; and Elizabeth Schliass; and her brother, Hubbard Hancock. She was preceded in death by her son, Ronald McGahey; her great-granddaughter, Nina Estelle Pierce; her parents; and her brother, C. W. Hancock.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial contributions in honor of Nancy be given to Nowell Massey Funeral Home to help defray funeral expenses.
