Nancy A. Almeida (Megarry), age 80 passed peacefully into Heaven on Tuesday October 19, 2021 shortly after 9:00 pm at Trident Medical Center in Charleston, South Carolina after a brief illness.
Nancy was born in Worcester Massachusetts, the daughter of the late James and Rita (Joubert) Megarry.

She attended Faith Church in Moncks Corner S.C where she enjoyed worshiping the word of God as well as in her spare time at home.
She enjoyed traveling on vacations which included cruises and a trip to Las Vegas and the Florida Keys. She also enjoyed line dancing and performing.
She was also quite the artist and spent many hours painting beautiful landscapes, she won first place blue ribbons in both the Orangeburg County and South Carolina State Fairs. If she wasn’t painting, she was cutting trees or gardening, she loved weeding out the garden most of all.
Nancy loved spending time with her family and all her grandchildren and great-grandchildren; she would never pass up a chance for a dinner out, especially if it was KFC or a McDonalds Mocha Frappe with Fries. She would often comment on all the beautiful pictures the great-grandkids would send her.
