Mrs. Nannie Drucilla Combs McDermott, born on August 16, 1924 in Stony Point, NC passed away at age 94 on March 19, 2019 in Warrenton, Virginia.
She is preceded in death by her husband Francis, son Michael, and daughter Sharon Chapman. She is survived by her daughter Frances Dodd (Richard), her five grandchildren; Danielle Chapman Frye (Rodney), Sandra Chapman, Samuel Dodd (Leslie), Michele Chapman (Corey Hicks), and Sarah Dodd and three great-grandchildren Michael Frye (Katie Mathis), Kayla Jones, and Tyler Prutzman.
Nannie was one of eight children. She was an avid crocheter and seamstress, most often making baby blankets for family and friends. She was an avid reader, particularly mysteries. She loved her sports, especially her Redskins (and whoever was playing the Dallas Cowboys), and the Washington Nationals. She was an amazing cook, whose special Christmas cookies nearly sparked family duels.
She always had a beautiful smile on her face and will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
In lieu of flowers, a donation to Heartland Hospice of Warrenton, VA, or charity of your choice is appreciated.
Graveside services will be held Monday, March 25, 2019 at two o’clock at Fairfax Memorial Park, located at 4401 Burke Station Road, Fairfax, Virginia.
