RELATED POST: Nancy J. Lepiesha Obituary
Ms. Nancy J. Lepiesha, of Stamford, Connecticut, formerly of Worcester died Friday, October 22, 2021, in Greenwich Hospital. She was 80. Nancy was born on March 25, 1941, in Worcester, the daughter of the late Walter E. and Mary (Crosbie) Lepiesza. A graduate of St Peter’s High School, she earned her Bachelor’s degree from Anna Maria College and her Master’s degree in Education from San Francisco State University.
For five years, she taught first grade in Spencer, Massachusetts. In 1970, she relocated to San Francisco, where she remained for more than 33 years. She spent almost 35 years as a teacher at Vallejo Mill Elementary School while living in California, and she stayed in touch with a lot of her former pupils.
Over 10 years ago, Nancy made her way back to her beloved New England and settled in Stamford. Her love of exploring new places allowed her to take excursions across the United States and to numerous European nations. England and France were two of her favorite places to travel.
She learned how to cook from her mother and enjoyed preparing meals for family and friends. Sundays meant completing the New York Times Crossword, and she was an avid reader of both books and magazines. A supporter of the arts, she enjoyed museums and theater in both San Francisco and Manhattan on Broadway.
In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her brother, Walter E. Lepiesza, Jr.
She leaves her sister-in-law, Linda Lepiesza of Shrewsbury; her nephews and niece, William Lepiesza of San Diego, CA, Jennifer Shanley, and Christopher Leary, both of Shrewsbury; six grandnephews and grandnieces; several cousins in Utah, including Rose-Marie Carr Krill and Thomas Crosbie of North Brookfield.
