Nancy Buckley Faulkner

Nancy Buckley Faulkner, 103, passed away Friday, September 23, 2022, in Oxford, MS. She was born September 9, 1919, in Ruleville, MS, to Jake and Fannie (Denny) Buckley. Nancy obtained her Nursing Degree from the Baptist Memorial Hospital School of Nursing in Memphis, TN, and spent the majority of her career as a private duty nurse. She was a member of Sylva Rena Baptist Church in Water Valley, MS.

Nancy is described by her family as being independent, quiet, and unassuming. She loved the Atlanta Braves and was a fierce competitor. She enjoyed playing the card game, Shanghai, and was the Bingo Champion at her assisted-living community. But above all else, she loved spending time with her family and especially her grandchildren. Sundays were often spent together over a meal, a game of cards or just enjoying each other's company. She will be dearly missed by all those that loved and cherished her.

A visitation will be held Monday, September 26, 2022, at Seven Oaks Funeral Home from 11:00 AM until 12:00 PM in the Gardiner Room. Funeral Services will follow at 12:00 PM in the Henry Chapel with Chris McCluskey officiating. Interment will be at Sylva Rena Cemetery in Water Valley,MS.

Nancy is survived by her children Nancy (Jim) Burress and Anita (Lewis) Langdon, her grandchildren, Sandra (Steve) McCluskey, Carolyn (George) Rutherford, Greg (Erin) Burress, Susan (Jim) Keeley, Steve (Kellie) Burress, Amanda Sharp, Ashlee (Tate) Anderson, and Jason Langdon; eighteen great-grandchildren; and ten great-great-grandchildren. She is also survived by son-in-law Dale DImock and two sisters, Eleanor Trimble, 108 and Faye Stratton, 98.

Nancy was preceded in death by her husband of forty-two years, Ottis Faulkner; her daughter, Lila Dimock; and her parents, Jake and Fannie Buckley.
