Nancy L. Wagner

August 31, 1927 — April 2, 2020

Nancy Lucas Wagner, 92, passed away peacefully on Thursday, April 2, 2020.

“Mammaw Wag” was from Rockhill, SC; however, she currently lived with her daughter in Benton, TN.  She was born August 31, 1927.  In her time on earth, she spent 40 years as a spinner at Springs Mill in South Carolina. She loved the role of being a mammaw to her grandkids and great-grandkids.  

She was always full of life, never complained, and had a great spirit about her.  Nancy could light up a room and always loved to dance.  She was caring and compassionate to everyone and never met a stranger. We find peace and comfort knowing that she is dancing in the streets of gold.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Ira and Hattie Lucas; sisters, Loree Dostor and Sue Jones; brothers, John “JT” Lucas, Glen Lucas, James Lucas, and Max Lucas.

Survivors include her loving sons, Johnny Sinclair, Jerry Wagner, Jasper Wagner; beloved daughter and son-in-law, Julie and Gary Pike; several grandchildren and great-grandchildren also survive.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a private graveside service will be held at Antioch Baptist Church Cemetery, in Lancaster, SC. A Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date.
