Nancy Lynne Stevenson

Died : Feb 16, 2024

Fort Ann, NY

FORT ANN – Nancy Lynne Stevenson, 61, died on Friday February 16th at 7:17 AM in the Haynes House of Hope hospice care facility. Daddy’s girl, Nancy left behind her father Raymond, mother Carol, sister Sue, Mike (husband); and brother Butch, Beth (wife); several nieces, nephews and a host of other Stevenson’s that make up the large, beautiful family that is full of love and mourning for her in her passing. She has 6 grandchildren through her children, as well as many more children that considered Nancy their “Mee-maw”. Nancy’s legacy is her three son’s Clinton, Anthony and Raymond Cody. Her sons were with her sitting by her side when she passed into glory for eternity. Nancy was a passionate pool virtuoso. She loved pool so intensely, that even in her final days she used her immense passion and strong spirit to will what little strength she had left in her physical body to play her final three games of pool in her Wednesday night Ladies pool League. Nancy shared her love of pool with her three sons and her boyfriend William (Bill) Hall. Nancy’s love of pool was what led her to being such a wonderful mother. Nancy met her former husband and father to her sons Clinton (Clint) Cody Sr. in Germany while deployed in active service for her country as a proud member of the United States Air Force. Nancy and Clint met in Germany and gave birth to their oldest son Clinton. They would later bring their relationship back state-side where they added Anthony and Raymond to the Cody family of California. In California Nancy touched so many lives by spreading her infectious joy for life and love for her lord-and-savior Jesus Christ. Nancy was a devout Christian and believed in living her life to spread love as Jesus did. Nancy’s innate disposition toward making other’s lives better led her to a rich life with a huge circle of many people that truly loved and cared for her. As in her personal life, Nancy’s professional life was also one of service. Nancy’s primary occupation over the years was as an Administrative Assistant. Nancy was assistant to several top ranked generals in her time of service in the military. Nancy carried these organizational skills to the other jobs that she worked over the years. The name Nancy means “full of grace”. The word “no” was not in Nancy’s verbal lexicon. If someone asked her for something she would go out of her way to ensure that need was met and to make sure that person was cared for and felt cared for. She would literally, “give the shirt off her back” to help the ones she loved and cared about. No one could ask for a more loving, caring and kind person than Nancy. Nancy’s life-long dedication to care for other’s led her to touch and be touched by many lives along her journey. Sometime after the end of her marriage, her youngest son graduated High school and Nancy made the difficult decision to leave California and return home to New York. Upon doing so, Nancy faced many struggles including, a severe and tragic motorcycle accident (only three days after arriving back home), that left her and her father Raymond severely injured. Subsequently life back home was a difficult, uphill battle filled with surgeries, lasting injuries and ultimately culminated in a several month-long battle with cancer. Nancy lived a full life that ranged such a large spectrum of what life has to offer. She met life head on and never stopped living life until her time came. Nancy loved to sing Karaoke and she love, love, loved to dance. As you remember her, please take some time to sing a song for her, put on your favorite dance track and spend a little time honoring the life of Nancy Lynne Stevenson. Graveside services with full military honors will be 2:30 p.m. on Monday February 26th, 2024, at the Gerald B. H. Solomon Saratoga National Cemetery, 200 Duell Road, Schuylerville N.Y., 12871. As per the cemetery request please arrive on time but no more than 15 minutes early and pull over to the right procession parking lane. A celebration of Nancy’s life will follow the graveside services at the American Legion Post 574, 72 Pearl Street, Hudson Falls N.Y., 12839 from 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM. Arrangements have been entrusted to the Carleton Funeral Home, Inc., 68 Main Street in Hudson Falls. Online condolences may be left by visiting www.carletonfuneralhome.net

Born June 4, 1941, in Fort Edward, he was the youngest of two sons of the late William and Joyce (Woodward) Sharrow, Sr. , raised during his formative years by his stepmother, Helen Sharrow. Ed was a graduate of Fort Ann Central School, class of 1959, where he met his future wife Betty (Shaw).

Our "wise old owl" will be greatly missed. The younger generations will never know what it's like to snipe hunt, to be hypnotized, be subjected to his "5 minute jobs", swim in the Boreas, or camp at Huntley Pond "the Fort Ann Leech Beach" - with you.
