Our beloved mother, Nancy Lorraine Dove (Arehart), died peacefully at the home of her daughter in New Jersey on May 10, 2018 at the age of 79. She was the daughter of the late Katie Marie Spitzer and Walter Henry Arehart, born and raised in Timberville, Va.
After many years as a homemaker in New Jersey, she went back to school to become a LPN, graduating top of her class. After moving back to her hometown of Timberville in 1978, she changed careers and worked for High's Dairy Store/Southland Corporation as a Manager, District Manager and Trainer until she retired.
Nancy enjoyed gardening, entertaining, playing in the snow and travelling by car, plane or camper. She and her greatest love, Robert Dove, went all over the world but loved most being with their family.
