Nancy Creech Kell, born March 16, 1947, passed away on April 26, 2022. Nancy was a devoted Nana, mother, sister, aunt, and cherished friend to many. A graduate of Maury High School in 1965, she received her Associates Degree in Business Administration in 1999 and a President’s Award.
Retired after 30+ years as a civil servant, she worked as an Executive Administrative Assistant in the Corps of Engineers in Wilmington, NC and for the Department of the Navy in Norfolk, VA.

An avid and skilled dancer, she was an active member of the Virginia Beach Shag Club. She was an enthusiastic volunteer to several organizations – her favorite activity was helping others.
