Nash (Pamela) of Newark, John M. Nash of Townsend, Stephen D. Nash (Teresa) of Hockessin, Patricia M. Nash (Bob Needs) of Newark, and Reverend James Nash of Easton, MD; sister, Jean Langshaw of Newark; brother, John Hoffman of Oxford, PA; 13 grandchildren; and 15 great- grandchildren.

A visitation for family and friends will be held from 10 am until 12 pm on Saturday, April 7, 2018 at Holy Family R.C.

    Fr. Nash,

    I feel as if I know your family, especially your mother, from the many loving references you make about them in your homilies. I am always inspired by the love you describe even in situations that evoke laughter and tears. I pray for the gentle and peaceful repose of your mother’s soul. May you and all who loved her be comforted by memories of the seasons of life you shared.

    With sympathy,
    Linda Mastro

While I did not know her well, I do think I know a lot about her because of your many stories. May you see her in the special things that meant so much to her and smile and know that she is with you.

    Fr Nash, I’m so very sorry to hear of your Mom, Millie’s passing. I’ll never forget what a Beautiful, Classy Lady she was! I really enjoyed working closely with her at Avon. She was always pleasant and always saw the best in people! She was so good to everyone she dealt with at her job in Avon’s Collections Department. We had many good times. You took such good care of her. Our sincere condolences to you and your family…. God Rest Her Soul. ❤️
