Anne "Nancy" M. Rigney, affectionately known as Nancy to her loved ones, passed away peacefully on August 16, 2023 in Darby. Born on June 21, 1933, in Yeadon, she was a proud Yeadonite, a daughter of the late John C., Sr. and Marie (Covvey) Rigney. Her life was marked by a radiant spirit of love, adventure, and intrigue, which she generously shared with all who knew her.
Nancy was the beloved sister of the late William, Robert, and Richard Rigney, and Rose Marie (Rigney) Kling. She is survived by her brother, John C. Rigney Jr., two sisters-in-law, Karen and Kathleen Rigney, twelve nieces and nephews, and a host of great-nieces, great-nephews, and cousins. Her family meant the world to her, and she took great pleasure in organizing family reunions, creating cherished memories that will last a lifetime.
Nancy was a proud graduate of the Academy of Notre Dame de Namur and the University of Pennsylvania. Her academic achievements laid a solid foundation for her professional life. For 25 years, she served as the Director of Volunteers at Fitzgerald Mercy Hospital. Her dedication to her work was evident in the way she treated everyone with kindness and respect. In addition to her professional responsibilities, Nancy was an active secretary of the Red Cross and Catholic Youth Organization, demonstrating her commitment to the welfare of her community.
A woman of deep faith, Nancy was a member of the Catholic Alumni Club and was actively involved with the Academy of Notre Dame de Namur Alumni. Her love for her alma mater was evident in her dedication to organizing reunions, cementing her legacy as a tireless connector of people. Nancy had a zest for life and an adventurous spirit that saw her travel extensively. She had a particular fondness for Europe and the islands, where she relished the opportunity to immerse herself in different cultures.
Those who knew Nancy will remember her as a loving individual who never hesitated to lend a helping hand. Her adventurous nature revealed a woman who was always ready to explore new horizons, and her interesting anecdotes from her travels were a testament to her zest for life. Nancy's legacy will live on in the hearts of those who were fortunate enough to know her.
In celebrating Nancy's life, we remember a woman who was not only a beloved family member but also a dedicated professional and a committed community servant. Her love, adventurous spirit, and interesting life stories will forever be etched in our hearts. May her soul rest in peace, and may her memory continue to be a blessing to us all.
