Mrs. Nancy Lee Anania December 21, 1933 - May 19, 2018
Nancy Lee Anania, age 84, died on May 19, 2018 at her home in Ellicott City, MD. She was the daughter of the late Lawrence Eugene Mulcahy and Eva May Leister Mulcahy. Nancy was the wife of the late Peter V. Anania, Sr., her husband of 63 years.
Nancy was a loving mother who raised four sons. A gifted artist, she took joy in painting, crafts such as making dollhouses, wreaths, and holiday decorations, sewing as well as designing landscapes and interiors. She enjoyed listening to all kinds of music, from opera to rock. She had a beautiful voice and got a kick out of singing with her sons in their garage band. Her favorite artist was opera singer Luciano Pavarotti.
Nancy was a lover of life and learning, and an avid history buff. She enjoyed colonial Jamestown in particular. She was fond of art museums and seeing her old neighborhood in Hamden where she grew up.
Nancy’s biggest passion was her family. She was a mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. Anyone who walked through her door would be welcome and would never leave hungry. Her kitchen stayed open 24 hours, her holiday celebrations were legendary, and she went out of her way to make every gathering unforgettable.
Nancy is survived by her sons, Peter V. Anania, Jr., David S. Anania, and his wife Barbara Anania, Andrew J. Anania, grandchildren Elizabeth Anania, Ashen Anania, Robin Harlan, and Tara Anania, and great grandchildren Dayja, Lily, Ella, Chloe, and Destiny. She was predeceased by her husband Peter V. Anania, Sr. and her son, Thomas S. Anania.
The family will receive friends on Tuesday, May 29, 2018 from 5 to 7pm. at Haight Funeral Home and Chapel, 6416 Sykesville Rd., Sykesville .A Funeral service will follow at 7:00pm.
