Mrs. Nancy J Reeder, 84, of Middletown, Maryland, entered her eternal home in heaven on Wednesday, July 11, 2018 at Frederick Memorial Hospital in Frederick. She was the loving and deeply devoted wife of Kenneth Reeder for a short 63 years.

She graduated from Middletown High School in 1951, and married her childhood sweetheart in 1954. They were inseperable. Nancy graduated as a Registered Nurse in 1954 from Washington County Hospital. She worked as an RN for two years until starting a family and becoming a devoted wife, mother, and homemaker. She continued to care off and on through the years for multiple family members. She always made herself available to help anyone the best she could; whether with her medical knowledge or a kind word or listening ear.
Nancy was a lifetime member of Zion Lutheran Church in Middletown, where she was a member of the altar guild for many years. She was also a member of the Mid Valley Homemakers Club.
