Nancy was born August 19, 1934, in Forsyth County, N.C., the daughter of the late Cecil Crews and Etta Lawson Crews.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Robert “Bob” Hart, and her beloved son, Dane S. Masten.

She left behind her daughter, Deborah Bruce; son, Tod Masten; her grandson, Ben Blevins who helped with her care;; and several grandchildren and great grandchildren. She also left behind her dear friends, Cindy Jones, Deanna Howard, Tim Pope, Andrew Martin and the staff at Jurney’s Assisted Living who made her a part of their family.

A heartfelt thank you to the wonderful folks at S. Mitchell Mack Hospice House for making her last days comfortable and calm. She was a special angel here on Earth and now she is one in Heaven.

The family will have a private celebration of life at a later date.
