December 18, 2018

Nancy J. Kegel, 89, of Lancaster, passed away on, Tuesday, December 18, 2018 at Brethren Village where she resided. She was the loving wife of the late George D. Kegel.

Born in Lancaster, she was a daughter of the late Abraham and Marie (Coyne) Young.

Nancy greatly loved her family. Family was the epitome of who Nancy was, and she treasured every moment she spent with her family and friends. She was proud of her grandchildren and never missed their sporting or school-related events.

In her early years, Nancy worked as a beautician before meeting her husband, George, and becoming a mother. She belonged to many senior activity groups in the area where she formed many friendships.

She is survived by her daughter Linda Sheerer and husband Richard of Leola; grandchildren: Kelly Sheerer of Ephrata, Christopher Sheerer and wife Alyce of Cleveland, OH; great-granddaughter Peyton Sheerer, and sisters: Doris Angeloff and Mary Ellen Bevilaqua. She was preceded in death by a brother Donald Young and a sister Henrietta Doner.

There will be a Mass of Christian Burial on Thursday, December 27th at 11 am at St. John Neumann Church, 601 E. Delp Road, Lancaster, PA. The family will receive guests from 10 am until the time of Mass at the church. Entombment will follow at St. Joseph New Catholic Cemetery, Lancaster.

I just discovered that Aunt Nancy has passed. I wish I had known. Several years ago, she and I spent quite a bit of time together, and became close. I truly loved her, and am so sorry to hear this. I’m sure this has been very difficult for your family. You, Dick and the kids are in our prayers.

Linda, It was sad to read of the passing of your Mother. I hope that you and your Family may find peace in her passing. It’s hard to loose a loved one at this time of year. I still remember both your Mother and Father as a child and all the nice things they did for our Family. I wish you Gods peace and pray you and your Family find the way through this this hard time.
