Nancye's obituary

Nancye Lee Stocker, 66, of East Greenwich, RI passed away on January 7, 2022. She was the daughter of Julian and Jeanne Horak and the wife of R. Thomas Stocker Jr. She is survived by her husband, her loving children, Philip and husband Robert, Michael, and Drew, as well as her four sisters, two brothers, and seven nieces and nephews.

Nancye was born in Lexington, Kentucky as the fourth of seven children, Maureen, Sue, Donna, Steven, Mary-Jo, and Thomas. In 1973, she graduated from West Deptford High School in West Deptford, NJ. After attending Rutgers University, Nancye moved to Connecticut where she began work at International Resource Development.

Nancye and Tom met at a Halloween party in 1981 and committed their love to each other at Orange Congressional Church in Orange, CT on November 19th 1983 and resided in Milford, CT.

In June of 1985, Nancye gave birth to their first son, Philip. In November of 1986, their second son Michael was born and in December of 1989 they received their favorite Christmas present, Drew. The family later moved to Gurnee, IL for two years before settling in East Greenwich, RI in 1997.

Nancye enjoyed needlework, cooking, reading, exercise, volunteering, and spending time with her boys. She selflessly spent her time enriching the lives of others as a certified tutor of literacy and ESL with Proliteracy America.

A remembrance will be held on Saturday, January 15th from 10am to 12pm at Hill Funeral Home, 822 Main Street, East Greenwich, followed by a celebration of life at Carriage Inn, 165 Tower Hill Road, North Kingstown, from 1pm-3pm. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to AdCare Rhode Island in her memory on this website.
