Passing from Life to Death

This week we learned of the death of Nancy Hodges Nix on Friday, October 27. Nancy was the mother of the late Michael Nix, and frequently attended St. Francis with him. She is survived by one brother, George Hodge, Jr., of Charlotte. Nancy’s cremains will be interred in the Memorial Garden at a later date. May her soul and the souls of all the departed, rested in peace.
