Nancy J. Collamore, 88, of Deltaville, Va. died Thursday, June 20, 2013 after a long illness at the Commonwealth Assisted Living Facility in Kilmarnock, Va.

Born in Newton, Mass., Nancy was the daughter of the late Charles B. and Mildred Janes. She was predeceased by her brother, Donald, and sister, Phyllis.

Nancy graduated from high school in Barrington in 1943, and shortly after married her high school sweetheart, the late John H. Collamore, Jr. while he was serving in the Army Air Corp.

She is survived by a son, John H. Collamore, III (Susie) of Deltaville, Va., and a daughter, M. Cheryl O’Brien (William) of Tustin, Calif.; four grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

While raising her family in Rhode Island, she worked as a corporate secretary. Upon locating to Virginia in 1973 she became the office manager working along with her husband and son at the family boat building shop of Hulls Unlimited-East in Deltaville.

Nan was a member of Christ Church Parish, Saluda, and a long time volunteer at Rappahannock General Hospital. She enjoyed gardening, travel and a lifetime of many Siamese cats.

The family has requested that a celebration of her life be held at a later date.

Collamore, obit
