Nancy Navickas, 80, passed away peacefully on Sunday (July 28, 2019). Nancy was born in Bristol, CT on September 27, 1938 and was the daughter of the late Edward and Elizabeth (Christian) Navickas. She lived in Bristol all of her life and took over her father’s restaurant, The Broaster House, working day and night for over 40 years with great success. She was kind to everyone she met and was a caregiver to several friends before finally needing care herself.
In her younger years she was a co-owner of a thoroughbred race horse in North Hampton, Massachusetts that brought great enjoyment. Summers were filled with family days at Bantam Lake, trips to the Jersey Shore to visit relatives, lobsters and watching her Boston Red Sox team.
Nancy loved a road trip, driving to Canada, all the east coast from Maine to Key West was an exciting adventure for her. Her last travels with her dear friend Rita Jones to Memphis to visit Elvis, Branson, MO for shows and out to Las Vegas was very memorable.
She leaves behind her sister-in-law: Peggy Navickas; nieces: Lori (Jay) Beaucar, Debbie (Don) Carr; several great nephews and nieces; and her best friend: Rita Jones. She was predeceased by her brother Edward Navickas Jr.
We would like to thank her aide Maria who showed so much love and compassion during her final days.
A graveside service was held on Saturday, August 3, 2019 at St. Joseph Cemetery 522 Terryville Ave, Bristol. Donations can be made in her memory to The Jimmy Fund, 10 Brookline Place West, Brookline, MA 02445. Please visit Nancy’s memorial website at www.FunkFuneralHome.com.
