Nancy Ngaruiya, age 56


Nancy Ngaruiya, age 56 years, of Dover, DE, passed from her earthly home to her heavenly home on Wednesday, January 3, 2018 in the Hunterdon Medical Center, Raritan Township, NJ, surrounded by her loving family after a valiant one year battle against pancreatic cancer; a battle which may have claimed her physical life on earth, but one which never shook her foundation of faith and love of family and friends.

A complete life legacy reflecting on this amazing daughter, mother, sister, aunt, and friend to many, will be forthcoming.

A celebration of Nancy’s life and accession into heaven will take place on Monday, January 15, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. in Wright & Ford Family Funeral Home and Cremation Services, 38 State Highway 31, Flemington, NJ.

Burial in a rural cemetery reflecting Nancy’s wishes will be announced and will follow the service on Monday.

Nancy will lie in repose at the funeral home on Sunday, January 14, 2018 from 1:00-4:00 p.m. and on Monday, January 15, 2018 from 10:00-11:00 a.m. and all are welcome to pay homage to this woman who touched so many for the better.

The caring and love of children that Nancy possessed, coupled with her desire for them to have proper nutrition and be able to simply, “be a kid without worrying about basic necessities”, has led her family to create a non-profit that will assist children both in the United States and in her homeland of Kenya. Those wishing to make a memorial contribution are asked to make it to the,“Nancy Ngaruiya Children’s Fund”, c/o Wright & Ford, 38 State Highway 31, Flemington, NJ 08822.
