Nancy Elizabeth (Lichliter) Kline, 87, of Winchester, VA went home to be with her Lord and Savior Wednesday, January 11, 2023 at Winchester Medical Center surrounded by family.
Nancy was born September 27, 1935 in Clarke County, VA the daughter of the late Edward and Georgia Lichliter. She attended Clarke County High School and was a waitress at the Green Palm Restaurant and Triangle Diner very early in her life. Later she worked part-time at Gaunt’s Drug Store for several years. Nancy was a member of Church of Christ at Mountain View, Women of the Moose and the American Legion Auxiliary. To know Nancy was to know a beautiful soul. She loved to sing and dance. Her smile and laughter were contagious. Growing up without a mom at the age of nine years old, she learned to care for others and show kindness and compassion throughout her life. Nancy was an avid homemaker who prepared delicious homecooked meals and provided a loving home where you always felt welcome and enjoyed the time spent there. She and Dodd, her husband, made many memories with friends and family with their various travels upon his retirement. Nancy was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who cherished her family and loved the Lord.
