Nancy Lee Twigg

The daughter of Julius Voight and Anne Venable Troutman of Williamsburg, Nancy Lee Twigg passed away peacefully in her sleep on 5 August 2021, after a long fight with Alzheimer’s and vascular dementia. She was 78 years young.

Nancy was born on 20 February 1943, in Richmond Virginia and grew up in Williamsburg graduating from Walsingham Academy. She spent her life on the Tidewater Peninsula, but loved to travel with her loving husband, Leonard (Joe) Twigg. From California, Colorado Springs, Las Vegas to New Orleans and up and down the east coast from New York to Florida they spent many trips together. A little further away, Nancy and Joe traveled to Brussels, Munich, Austria and the Netherlands. They liked to play cards, snow skiing, go bowling and played golf for many, many years. This past April was their 45th year wedding anniversary.

The two of them lived in Seaford Va. where they enjoyed their close friends and neighbors, and Nancy’s favorite time of year was the Holidays. She truly loved to have all the Family in her home for a get together whether it was Easter, Thanksgiving and especially Christmas. One year seemed to get bigger than the last, as our dinning room table would be extended into the adjoining living room to have seats for the extended family and friends around her table for the celebration. Everyone was welcome.

Nancy was survived by her children, David and his wife Carolyn Brabrand, Diane C. Brabrand, William and his wife Janine Brabrand and Allison P. Brabrand, grandchildren Charles (Ricky) Hurley, Ryan and his wife Christine Brabrand, Sidney and her husband Klye Derouen, Evan Brabrand, Amber Krause, Brett Krause, great-granddaughter Abigail and great-grandson Robin. She is also survived by her younger brother, James (Jim) and Connie Troutman. Nancy also had four stepchildren, four step grandchildren and three step great-grandchildren.

Family will receive loved ones at Bucktrout of Williamsburg, 4124 Ironbound Road on 13 August 2021 from 5:00 to 7:00 pm. Service will be held on Saturday 14 August, 2021 at 9:30 am with graveside to follow at Williamsburg Memorial Park – 130 King William Drive, Williamsburg Va.
