Nancy Belle Peer, 97, of Sugar Hill Road, Maurertown was called Home Easter Sunday, April 4, 2021. She was born May 17, 1923 in Van Buren Furnace, the daughter of the late Fitzhugh Cleveland Peer and Eula Esther Brill Peer. Nancy was a member of Valley Pike Church of the Brethren. Affectionately called “Nanny” by her nieces. She attended the schoolhouse in Zepp and was a member of the Lantz Mill Band. Nanny was a wonderful cook and a homemaker. She worked for Hamilton Restaurant, Woodstock Cafeteria, and Skyline Terrace Nursing Home. Nanny supported her family most all her life in some shape or form. She was the family historian. She valued and loved her family, their history and enjoyed telling stories, share pictures or show off family treasures she had managed to hide away. She loved music and The Gravel Springs Picnic was one of her favorite community events to attend. She also enjoyed a good joke as she always had one ready to share with those closest to her. She leaves behind many that will miss her. Those include her nieces and nephews; Susan Lee (Tommy) of Fredericksburg, RL Frederick (Michele) of Front Royal, Deborah Frederick of Front Royal, Lana Himelright (Garland) of Strasburg, Connie Peer (Wayne Miller) of Maurertown, Tandy Peer (Earl Irvine) of Maurertown, Wayne Peer (Madonna) of Ronceverte, WV, and Randy Peer (Loretta) of Maurertown. Nanny was also survived by great and great-great nieces and nephews too numerous to mention. She was predeceased by her parents and her siblings; Fitzhugh Peer, Thurston Peer, Dave Peer, James Peer, Vincent Peer, Barbara Frederick, and Esther “Ricky” Mowrey and a nephew, David Frederick. Special thanks for her caregivers Anna Bowley, Pat Stiefel, Pauline Harris, Margorie Rowman, Jeanette Stacey, Lisa Minton-Keller, and the staff of Blue Ridge Hospice.
