Nancy was born on June 21, 1934 in Columbus, Georgia.  She was the only child of Eugenia and Willis Matthews. Nancy passed away on October 10, 2017.  Her father was a Major General in the U.S. Army, so the family moved frequently.   In her younger years, Nancy enjoyed ballet dancing and horseback riding. She married Jack Middleton at the American Cathedral in Paris on August 13, 1955.  Nancy acted as Treasurer of the Junior League and served on the Altar Guild at All Saint’s Memorial Church.
