A Waltham resident for over 50 years passed away Thursday March 25th, 2021 at the age of 77.
Nancy was born on June 27, 1943 in Cambridge, MA to the late Simeon White and Phyllis (Palmer) White.
She was raised in Watertown where she graduated from Watertown High School. Nancy furthered her education graduating from Suffolk University with a Bachelor's Degree in English.
Nancy worked at the National Archives in Waltham while raising her three sons.
Her time off was spent on family trips to New Hampshire's Newfound Lake and Mr. Wally's Cabin. She also enjoyed her brother's home in Rhode Island. Her highlight of travel was taking her children to England to connect with her heritage, of which she was so proud of. Some of her favorite times spent with family were long rides enjoying the New England foliage as well as the best ocean seafood restaurants.
Nancy was the former wife of the late Anthony R. Calleva and beloved mother of the late Marc Calleva.
She is survived by her loving children Christopher S. Calleva and his wife Linda (Proia) Calleva of Waltham; Anthony Calleva Jr. and his wife Kim (Bailey) Calleva of Clinton; her cherished grandchildren Christopher S. Jr, Anthony III, Brieanna and Nicholas; and her dear siblings Robert White and his wife Diana of Portsmouth, RI; and Patricia Thurston and her husband Brad of Fall River, MA. In addition she is survived by several nieces, nephews, and close relatives who loved her dearly.
