On Easter Sunday 2017, Nancy Allen Fahrmeier peacefully crossed into Eternal Life. She was in the presence of her husband and two children - the family she spent a lifetime loving and caring for.
Born on Easter Sunday, April 13, 1941, Nancy was the daughter of the late Robert E. Allen and Cornelia J. Allen and loving sister to the late Elizabeth A. Stavnitski of Hilton Head, SC.
People from every walk of life were welcomed by Nancy’s smile and, through the warmth of her presence, could see the beauty in themselves and others. She lived with integrity and courage, joy and enthusiasm, and was known for her attention to every thoughtful detail.
Nancy graduated from the Ohio State University where she met her husband of 52 years Raymond Fahrmeier. Together with Ray, Nancy enjoyed exploring the world through travel, singing with several choruses over the years, and devotion to her family and home.
She is survived by her husband Ray, her son John Fahrmeier and wife Judy of Cincinnati, Ohio, daughter Lynne Fahrmeier Williams and husband Tony of Williamsburg, Virginia, and her four grandchildren in which she took such pride, granddaughters Anna, Catherine, and Elizabeth, and grandson Paul, beloved sisters- and brothers-in-law, nieces and nephews, loving extended family, and dear friends.
Thank you to our faith community who has sustained us through prayer and love during a long season.

Celebrating the life of Nancy A. Fahrmeier
Thank you for signing Nancy A. Fahrmeier's Guestbook
Dear Ray, John, Lynn and family,
My heartfelt sympathy at this time. You know what a blessing Nancy has been...and will continue to remain so to each of you.
Wanted to share a sweet memory of Nancy: several years ago, my husband, Mike Hoffman, and I were at Mass at St. Gregory's in Bluffton. Afterwards, Ray and Nancy spotted us and warmly greeted old neighbors. You may remember, Ray, how you both spontaneously invited us to join you for breakfast which we did. What a delightful time was shared by all, fondly remembering our children's friendship as well. It's always such a gift to spend time with old friends.
You are all in my prayers. Have a wonderful trip, Ray...celebrating the life of Nancy as well. The week after Mike died, I went to Hilton Head doing the same thing.
God is good!
Jane (Leroux) Hoffman
