Nancy Jean Robertshaw

December 3, 1941 — May 10, 2016

Nancy Jean Robertshaw (nee Weaver)
My BURIAL OFFICE will be held at St. James Episcopal in Clayton, GA on the 23rd of May at 11:00 A.M. . INTERMENT will be held immediately following the service in the St. James Memorial Garden.

I request that anyone wishing to make a MEMORIAL DONATION to please direct it to the either the St. James “Miracle Fund,” (a fund that benefits people in dire need and extraordinary circumstances in Rabun County) or the Faith’s “Powerhouse for Kids” in Toccoa, GA (an advocacy center for victims of child abuse).

The Lord brought me into this world on December 3, 1941 in Tampa, FL. He called me home on May 10, 2016, following an 8-year battle with breast cancer. I was blessed to die in my bed in Rabun Gap, GA surrounded by my family.

I graduated from Plant High School in Tampa and received my A.A. degree from St. Pete Junior College. Licensed as an R.N., I worked in various hospitals and nursing homes in Tampa Bay. I married Lee Robertshaw on May 31, 1963 soon began a family; we raised our three children in Tampa and were active members of St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church.

I was a life-long member of the E.C.W., Daughters’ of the King, and American Business Woman’s Association, was fortunate to complete a four-year Theological Education by Extension (T.E.E) program offered by University of the South as well as the Clinical Pastoral Education (C.P.E) program offered at St. Joseph’s hospital.

Encouraged by my mother and grandmother, I began sewing at the age of three using “sewing cards.” My love for sewing was enlivened while creating clothes for my children, and furthered through cross-stitch and embroidery. In the 90’s quilting became my passion. More than the quilting itself, my quilting friends and companions became my greater joy!

I will be forever grateful to the staff at Long Street Clinic, my doctors: Beck, Dixon and Nash, my Mountain Laurel Quilt Guild family, Bee Sharp and Bee Artful “girls” whose friendship and support brought such joy to my life and to my friends at St. James. All of you were rays of sunshine for me during my darkest days.

I was preceded in death by my parents, Barrett and Margaret Weaver (nee Bridges) and brother-in-law, Wallace Scott. I am survived by my beloved husband, Lee Robertshaw, and our three adult children: daughters, Lisa and Michelle Robertshaw and son, Jason Robertshaw (and his wife, Patricia and my precious grandson, Andrew). Also my dear sisters, Jennifer Weaver and Carol Scott.

My beloved Lee, Lisa, Michelle and Jason. My beloved friends and family. How precious you all have been to me. Knowing and loving each one of you was the success story of my life. I know we will meet again, joyfully, on the other side. Until then, love one another, be kind and do not forget to welcome strangers…for they may be angels unaware.
