Nancy E (Tichy) Wolpmann, born Nov 20, 1938 in Jersey City, NJ. passed suddenly on Wednesday, April 12, 2023 in Williamsburg, VA.

She was the daughter of Helen (Rehm) and John Tichy and was raised in Little Ferry, NJ graduating from Lodi High School. She excelled in gymnastics and in art, earning many awards in her childhood.
Nancy met her husband, Bill, at Multitone Engraving where she was a textile designer. They raised 4 children in the Bergen County area before moving the family to Camden, NY in 1969. She worked for Losurdo Foods in Blossvale and later Rome, NY eventually becoming plant manager of the facility. Art, gardening, her beloved horse “Babe”, her pets and especially raising her children were her greatest passions.

Later, her 11 great-grandchildren enjoyed the many holiday traditions as they continue to be carried on by younger generations.
