Notes

Nancy Dolin Pate, 66, passed away surrounded by her loving family on March 14, 2019, after a lengthy battle with glioblastoma. She was born October 21, 1952, in Charleston, WV, to Margaret Ann Fulton Dolin and the late Dr. George L. Dolin. Preceded in death by her father and brother- in- law Richard Hendren. She is survived by her devoted husband of 40 years, Fletcher (Buddy) Pate; sons, Michael Pate (Beth) and David Pate(Cindy); grandchildren, Emery Pate and William Pate; her mother, Margie; twin sister, Libby Godwin (Jerry); sister, Georgann Hendren; brothers, David Dolin (Sue) and Robert Dolin (Julie); sister-in-law, Sandra Pierce (Stuart); along with many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.

Nancy was raised in St. Albans, WV, where she graduated from St. Albans High School before attending UNC-Greensboro and graduating cum laude with a BA in Mathematics. She worked at Deans Wrecker Service, Inc., St Andrews Presbyterian Church, Northern Telecom Inc., and NC State University.

Nancy was a devoted wife and mother. She enjoyed snow skiing, walking, exercising, being a soccer team manager for her sons, and baking for family and friends. Nancy was a thoughtful, kind, generous, and fun loving person who had the gift and desire of forging lifelong friendships. Her infectious smile, sense of humor, engaging personality, and genuine love and compassion was evident to family, friends, and co-workers. Prior to Nancy’s diagnosis in October 2017, she was looking forward to retirement and spending quality time with her grandchildren.

Nancy had unwavering faith in God, and her belief in His grace was tenable. Growing up, she was a member of St. Albans Baptist Church; as an adult, she was a member of St. Andrews Presbyterian Church, and later a founding member of Grace Community Church. Even during her declining health and inability to speak, her faith never faltered. She was a resilient and determined individual who never approached life with apprehension.

The family extends their gratitude and appreciation to Heartland Hospice, Dr. Dale Patrick, Caregivers Nena and Belinda and her many special and loving friends.

A Memorial Service is planned for April 13, 2019, 2:00pm, at
Renaissance Funeral Home, 7615 Six Forks Rd, Raleigh, NC 27615 with a visitation to follow.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Heartland Hospice-
heartlandhospicefund.org or to Heartland Hospice, 4505 Falls of Neuse Road,Suite 650, Raleigh, NC 27609

I have such wonderful memories of Nancy and they all include that gorgeous smile. She and Buddy were so devoted to each other and their boys--an awesome family. May God protect her loved ones on earth as she praises her Father in Heaven.

On a nice early summer day in 1984, we moved from a small town, Lynchburg, Virginia to the Thorpshire Farm subdivision in Raleigh, North Carolina. We were new to Raleigh and North Carolina. Not knowing what the neighborhood was like concerned us, particularly for our one and half years old daughter, Shin-Yi.

Early the very next morning after the moving truck was gone, Through the back window I saw a lady holding a toddler boy’s hand. Apparently, they were taking the morning walk in their backyard. Jubilation! Shin-Yi could have a potential friend very close by. About an hour later, our doorbell rang. Here came the lady, the toddler, and a gentleman. They welcome us to the neighborhood with a basket of homemade muffins baked that morning, fresh and warm! They also offered us help should we needed anything.

We heard of the Southern Hospitality. Now we experienced it firsthand! What a wonderful way to start our friendship with Nancy, Buddy and the Pate family. It is interesting that their two sons, Michael and David, are at the same age as our two daughters, Shin-Yi and Shin-Ping. They pretty much went to the same schools and kind of growing up together.

Nancy, you demonstrated to us that not only we moved into the right neighborhood but were actually living in Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. Thank you so much!

We take comfort in knowing that you are now in a peaceful neighborhood. We miss you though!

Nancy and I met shortly after she graduated from UNC-Greensboro when she came to work at NC State in Student Affairs. She was the first twin that I had ever known and we became good work friends. My husband Herb and I are heartbroken that she has left us, but we know that she is in a wonderful place and we will see each other again some day.

Our hearts go out to all of her loving family. There are simply no words to describe the sadness and loss they must feel. Please know that our thoughts are with you.

Nancy was such a special friend, a real blessing in my life. She would call me after work while she was walking ( I had moved to Tulsa,Ok. I looked forward to those calls. I worked in the pre school at the church and she worked in the church office when I lived in Raleigh . She would often bring me a loaf of homemade bread her twin sister Libby sent me. She was the most dedicated christian Ihave ever known. My prayers are with the family. Thank you for keeping in touch with me.
