Nancy E. Przeworski, of Virginia Beach, died Oct. 13, 2015, at her home following a courageous battle with cancer. She was 64.
She was born in Nanticoke, Pennsylvania, on Jan. 11, 1951 and graduated from Piscataway High School, Piscataway, New Jersey, and attended Newark State College, now Kean University. Earlier in her career, Nancy was employed by PRMMI in Elizabeth, New Jersey, and Glen Burnie, Maryland. She was employed for the past 24 years with OOCL in Norfolk.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Leo and Jennie Przeworski, of Nanticoke, Pennsylvania.
Nancy will be remembered for her constant smile and infectious laughter. She was an excellent cook and baker and everyone looked forward to her treats. Her legacy will be the love, help and support that she offered other breast cancer survivors.
