September 25th, 2016, leaving behind
her beloved husband of 66 years, Jack Stephen Skakandy.
Born in Red Bank, NJ on November 27 - forget the year, Irish ladies do not tell – to
Francis Leo Mead and Loretta Conway Meade, Nancy Lou was the first female to
become a principle of a national securities/investment banking firm in the USA while
living in New Jersey. After moving to Palm Beach County in 1970 Nancy became
involved in real estate and was the sales and/or project manager of many Singer Island
high-rise communities. Nancy also became an accomplished private pilot, sports
fisherwoman and enjoyed many days sailing along the sunny banks of the Loxahatchee
River.
Nancy was a strong, dedicated wife and mother of three sons: John Stephen Skakandy,
Jr. (Toni Lee Donofrio Skakandy); Robert Meade Skakandy (Ann Huddleston Skakandy)
and Stephen Conway Skakandy (Joyce Bland Skakandy), and grandmother to two
grandchildren, John Stephen Skakandy, III and Sean Collins Skakandy.
Nancy has one surviving sister, Claire Whalen of Poughkeepsie, NY, and is predeceased
by two other sisters, Jane Allen of Laguna Beach, CA and Madeline Griffith of North
Carolina.
