Nancy Jean Geis died on February 17, 2021, after a hard battle with cancer. She is the daughter of the late Clark and Frances Campbell. She is survived by her husband of 53 ½ years, Dennis J. Geis, her sons, DJ (Sheri) and Jim (Jenny), and her sister, Alice McCausley. She is the loving grandmother of Leo, Jacob, Owen, Miriam, Michaela, and the late Noah. She is also survived by many nieces and nephews.
Nancy was raised in Dormont and graduated from Dormont High School in 1962. She then went on to Presbyterian Hospital School of Nursing, where she graduated in 1965, with her RN. She knew from early on that she wanted to be a nurse. Nancy worked at Presby for 2 years before marrying Dennis in 1967, and then started working at St. Clair Memorial Hospital. In 1995, she obtained her BS in Health Arts from the University of St. Francis. Nancy worked at St. Clair Hospital for 39 ½ years, where she made many dear, lifelong friends. She always loved being a nurse. She found it to be such a rewarding career, and she helped many friends and neighbors in their time of need.
Nancy loved going to their cottage in the mountains along the Allegheny River. They had many friends there, and had many picnics with neighbors over the years. She hosted several Christmas in July dinners complete with decorations, gifts, and the traditional dinner. She loved doing crafts, especially cross stitch projects. She made many beautiful cross stich gifts that remain keepsakes for friends and family members.
Her purest joy was being "Grammy," watching and playing with her grandsons, attending soccer tee ball, and baseball games, music concerts, and school plays. And then she became "Mimi" to her granddaughters, enjoying Disney princesses, Star Wars, and Toy Story. She finally got to shop for girlie dresses and toys.
