From an early age, Nancy worked at a local dry cleaner in Atlantic Highlands where she made many lifelong friends. Nancy went on to work at other local customer service jobs making many friends before she was disabled by the effects of multiple sclerosis.
Nancy was always known for her kindness and respect that she showed to everyone.

She loved her family above all, often spoiling her many nieces and nephews as if they were her own children. Nancy's love for dogs was immeasurable with one of her favorite pastimes being to walk her beloved Kingsley. She also loved nothing more than a trip to Walmart or a dollar store.

Phillips, her brother Calvin W. Stone Jr. (Barbara) Leonardo NJ, her sister Joanne Stone Monmouth County NJ, her brother Thomas Stone (Alisa) Atlantic Highlands NJ and many nieces and nephews.
