Nancy Jean Webster Wrenn, 91, passed away on Wednesday, May 31, 2023, at Twin Lakes Community. Born and raised in Alamance County, Nancy was the daughter of the late James Carey Webster and Lenor Elizabeth Moore Webster and was married to her late husband, William Edward Wrenn for 49 loving years.   

Nancy, affectionally known as “Granny,” was a long-time member of Glen Hope Baptist Church, where she enjoyed playing piano and singing for many years. Later, she joined Haw River Christian Church, now known as Lambs Chapel, where she also shared her musical talents. She loved teaching and caring for children and was able to share her love of music with numerous kindergarten classes by teaching music. Nancy lovingly watched many children in her home over the years, including her grandchildren. A true southern cook, Granny enjoyed making memories with her family and friends through home cooking, making meals her family would never forget. From her fried apple pies, fried chicken, chicken and dumplings, potato salad, and delicious pound cakes, her cooking warmed the hearts of her loved ones. Nancy also loved the beauty of nature. She spent many hours working outside in her garden tending to her flowers and plants. During her time at Twin Lakes, Nancy was very social and made many friends, and she also discovered her love of art. She would spend many hours making beautiful artwork for everyone to enjoy. The family would like to give a special thanks to Twin Lakes Community for their compassionate, loving care over the past 8 years especially the Piedmont Neighborhood.
