She was the archetype of a nurse and a Swedesboro girl through and through. Nancy graduated Swedesboro High in 1946 and went on to attend Cooper Hospital School of Nursing where she found her true calling in administration: she was the assistant business editor of the yearbook and vice-president of her class. As an administrator at Greenbrier Nursing Home Nancy insured patient care by making sure that everything was efficient and orderly. She’d finish out her career at the New Jersey Department of Health, inspecting nursing homes; Nancy received many recognitions. Later years found her traveling with friends and tour groups to warmer climates.
She was pre-deceased by her parents J. Clark Gleeson and Mildred Madara and her brother J. Clark Gleeson Jr.; survivors include her niece, Eileen Gleeson and nephew, Brien and their children.
