Obituary for Nancy Gaskins

Julia "Nancy" Gaskins, 67, left this world and entered the gates of heaven on Thursday, September 6, 2018.

Born February 25, 1951, Nancy was a lifelong resident of Ocracoke Island, North Carolina where she lived her life dedicated to caring for her family and friends. She was a beloved wife and mother, a best friend and devoted daughter, a generous and loving Nana, and a fun and cherished sister. To all who were blessed to know Nancy knew she was beautiful on the inside and out. Her kind and warm spirit was always up for a good conversation and never met a stranger.

She was preceded in death by her son James "Brad" Gaskins, Jr.; father William "Bill" Spencer; grandparents Milon and Nina Williams and Washie and Minnie Spencer. 

A celebration of life will be held on Tuesday, September 25, 2018 at 2pm at the Ocracoke United Methodist Church. The family will receive friends for fellowship at 278 Lighthouse Road following the service.
