August 25, 1945 - January 3, 2021
Nancy Susan Jury (1945 - 2021) On Sunday, January 3, 2021, Nancy Susan Jury, wife, mother and grandmother, passed away at the age of 75 in Tampa, Florida. Nancy was born on August 25, 1945 to John Louis and Rose Tedesco Jury in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She grew up around the country as her father’s work as a boilermaker took them many places. She finished high school at Bryan Station High School in Lexington, Kentucky, from which she graduated from in 1963. In 1966 and 1969, she was blessed with two sons, David Louis and Steven George Brangaccio. Nancy earned her nursing degree from University of Tennessee Nashville in 1977 while living in Hermitage, Tennessee with her family. She moved to Ft. Myers, Florida in 1977 ahead of the rest of the family to start her nursing career. Nancy lived in other parts of Florida, including Punta Gorda, Estero, Lutz and Tampa. Nancy spent her professional life working in healthcare. She started as a floor nurse, moving on to administration and heading up the admitting department at Ft. Myers Community Hospital in the late seventies and early eighties. Later, she worked in home health care around the southwest Florida area. She worked labor and delivery at Lee Memorial Hospital for a couple years and eventually went back to working home health care that specialized in serving respiratory patients. She went back to Lee Memorial Hospital to work in billing and eventually managed that department. She continued working in healthcare billing for the remainder of her career. She was proud to be a nurse and there wasn’t anywhere in southwest Florida that she went where someone didn’t recognize her and say, “Hi, Nancy.” When asked who said “hi,” she would reply, “I have no idea.” Clearly, she left an impression on the patients she met while being a nurse. Nancy was one smart lady who excelled in school, finishing at the top of her class in nursing school, but she never stopped pursuing intellectual interests. While she enjoyed T.V. or a movie, she was a vociferous reader who always was working on a novel, fictional or historical, and always needed to return books to the library that she had finished. Due to reading, she always knew a little something about everything. She cross stitched for years, did needle point a little, but once she got into quilting, she had found a hobby that she loved dearly. She made all sorts of quilts over the years and if you received one or more from her, you were lucky and special to her. Nancy was a gregarious person that loved to talk and spend time with you. Her laugh filled any room she was in. She made many friends over the years at school, work and church. She committed herself to God after her father’s passing and for a few years sang in the choir at First Assembly of God, which traveled to Europe a couple times to spread the Gospel. She married Dorsett Bennett October 10, 2010. They were very happy and spent several years together before his death in 2018. Nancy was preceded in death by her father and mother. She is survived by her brother and sister-in-law, Henry and Naomi Jury, her two sons, David and Steven, her daughters-in-law, Jan and Anoush and her grandchildren, Lindsey, David, Nicholas, Bryan, Lauren, Amelia, Maya and Olivia, as well as aunts and uncles and many cousins. A small service of Nancy’s immediate family will be held to celebrate her life on Saturday, January 23, 2021 at Trinity Memorial Gardens at 12609 Memorial Drive, Trinity, Florida starting at 1:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, please donate to Michael J.
