From the Daily Press - 08/09/20:   

             Nancy Neill Fairfield

   

NEWPORT NEWS - Nancy Neill Fairfield passed away on August 5, 2020. Nancy was born in Sandston, VA, and was raised in Newport News.

She graduated from Newport News High School and married the love of her life, Robert "Ham" Fairfield in 1948.

She attended Charles Beauty School. Although she never worked professionally as a hairdresser, her family certainly benefited from her expertise over the years. Nancy began her career as a Teacher's Aide at Denbigh Presbyterian Church now DUPC in 1966. She also was employed by York County School System as a Teacher's Aide for the Hearing Impaired and Kindergarten before retiring in 1986.

Nancy was predeceased by her loving husband, Ham; daughter, Janet Roseberry; grandson, Ryan Lanford; son-in-law, Charlie Hughes; parents Edward Albert Neill and Georgia Apsley Neill; and siblings, Dot Yess, Kennedy Neill, Charlie Neill, Martha O'Berry, and Jerry Neill. She is survived by her daughters, Diana (Jimmy) Weisflog and Jenny Lou Hughes; granddaughters, Dr. Chaffin Roseberry, Beth Roseberry, and Amanda (Derek) Roberts; and great-grandchildren, Audrey Roseberry and Henry Roberts.

 

 
 
 


Nancy was a member of Denbigh United Presbyterian Church. She also enjoyed her memberships with Chi Alpha Sorority, Virginia Peninsula Rose Society, Kingsmill Yacht Club, and Kingsmill Garden Club.

During her early retirement Nancy enjoyed many boat trips with Ham to include Manteo, NC, Elizabeth City, NC, St. Michael's, and Solomon's Island. She also enjoyed her trips to Hawaii and St. Croix.

Nancy was no stranger to hard work. She was always there to help Ham and her daughters with childcare, lawn work, painting, and clean up. Nancy will be forever remembered by her family for her special "Nanny Rolls". Her daughters have attempted to replicate these, but they are never as good as hers. Those who knew Nancy will remember her for her beautiful contagious smile, her hugs and kisses, laughter, and positivity.

Her family, especially Jenny Lou, would like to express their appreciation for their care of Nancy in recent years. A special thank you to Barbara, Cheryl, Belinda, and Respite Care at United Methodist Church along with the facilities, Warwick Forest and Edgeworth Park.

A graveside service will be conducted Tuesday, August 11, 2020 at 11:00 am at Peninsula Memorial Park Mausoleum, 12750 Warwick Blvd., Newport News, VA 23606. Please use the back entrance of cemetery off of Nettles Drive to be directed to the Mausoleum. Masks and social distancing will be required.

A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date at Denbigh United Presbyterian Church.

If this is the Fairfield family that lived on Maxwell Lane, then my good friend Will Curling and I knew them as a wonderful friendly family. Daughter Diana was in several classes with us at Yates. She was a good friend to all who knew her. All of you are fondly remembered and appreciated.

Near to the Heart of God

Words and Music by Cleland B. McAfee (25 Sept 1866 - 04 Feb 1944), 1901
 

There is a place of quiet rest,
Near to the heart of God.
A place where sin cannot molest,
Near to the heart of God.

Refrain:
O Jesus, blest Redeemer,
Sent from the heart of God;
Hold us, who wait before Thee,
Near to the heart of God

There is a place of comfort sweet,
Near to the heart of God;
A place where we our Savior meet,
Near to the heart of God.

There is a place of full release,
Near to the heart of God;
A place where all is joy and peace,
Near to the heart of God.
