Nancy Calvano, 78, passed away peacefully after a short illness, on February 25, 2018 with her family by her side. She was born in Elizabeth, NJ to the late Ann and Henry Schaupp. Nancy was a loving mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, and will be remembered as a woman of strength and devotion.

Nancy took great pride in making her house a home. She enjoyed time spent with her friends at the Lacey Township Garden Club.

She cared for her husband Raymond with steadfast resolve as he battled illness in his final years. Though reserved in nature, Nancy was fiercely dedicated to the people she loved.
She is predeceased by Raymond Calvano Sr., her devoted husband of 57 years. Nancy is survived by her sons Raymond Jr. (Eve), and Christopher (Ruth Ann), grandchildren Alexandra (Ethan Long), Luke (Bernadine), Quenten, and great grandson Owen Long. Brother Henry, Jr. (Elaine) and sister Mary Alice and nieces and nephews.
