Nancy M. Parker, age 81, of New Castle, DE, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family on Wednesday, January 20, 2021.
Born on August 19, 1939 in Brooklyn, NY, she was a daughter of the late Carmine and Raffaela (Tammaro) Mossorofo. Growing up in Brooklyn, Nancy and her husband moved to New Castle, DE in 1961 to raise their family.
A woman of strong faith, she attended Holy Spirit Catholic Church where she was a member of their Sodality for more than 40 years. Nancy enjoyed being a homemaker and raising their three sons, who she loved dearly. After raising her own children, she treasured being a grandmother and spoiling her grandchildren. In her spare time, Nancy could often be found shopping for bargains and enjoyed spending time at Delaware Park. Most of all, she loved spending time with her Mossorofo family. Nancy will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her loving husband, William X. Parker, Jr.; son, George Parker; and siblings, Phil Dragotto, Lala Matranga, Gloria Martinez, Tina Mossorofo, Sonny Mossorofo, and Georgie Mossorofo.
