Nancy Schaefer Conway passed away at her home with family on November 27th, 2018. She was born on May 16, 1955 in Flushing, New York as the second of six children to Frank and Jean Schaefer. She grew up in Garden City, New York and later moved to Miami, Florida with her family. She eventually made her way to Nashville, where she met the love of her life, Tony Conway. The two were married in September of 1978, and they celebrated 40 years of marriage this past September. She was his best friend, his love and his partner both in life and in business. Together they have a son, Matthew, and a daughter, Katie. While starting their family, Nancy's greatest gift was realized. She made it her mission to be the best mother she could be, and she did just that by being the most loving, caring, compassionate and wonderful mom to her adoring children. Nancy graduated from Belmont University with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and was a member of Psi Chi, the National Honor Society in Psychology. Those fortunate enough to be close to Nancy knew how truly brilliant, remarkable and special she was. She lived to help and comfort others as evidenced by her close-knit family and the time she spent volunteering at Christ the King School, Alive Hospice, and The Crisis Line of Nashville. One of her greatest joys in life was taking on the title of Mimi to her grandsons Carter and Anthony, whom she shared a special bond with and loved dearly. She is survived by her husband, Tony; her son Matthew and his wife, Regina; her daughter Katie and her husband Blair; and her grandchildren Carter, 4, Anthony, 2, and baby girl Conway due December 12th. She is survived by her brothers Frank (Starr), John (Barbara) and Gene (Yoly) and her sister, Peggy. She is also survived by a host of in-laws who reside in Bardstown Kentucky, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Nancy may be made to the T.J. Martell Foundation, Music's Promise for Curing Cancer. ( )
