Nancy graduated from Martinsville High School and Randolph-Macon Woman's College. Afterward she taught school briefly in Dalton, Georgia, and Martinsville. In 1941, she married Henry E. Gilliam, Jr. ("Van"). They lived in Norfolk during the war, afterward returning to reside in Lynchburg.

She was a member of St. John's Church, and active in the Junior League.

Through her love of laughter and big heart, "Big" managed to survive the continuous jokes of her first husband Van, and the raising of her daughter, Nancy Gravely Gilliam ("Little"), of Sagle, Idaho and even her son Henry E. Gilliam III("Harry") of Round Hill, VA. She is also survived by her stepson, Charles Shank, currently in Afghanistan, her adopted daughter Lucia Cucullu of NY, her sister Sadie Hay Hampson("Puff"0 of Franklin, MI, hers sister, Virginia Hufford ("Deeda") of Richmond, her sister Elizabeth Starling Gravely ("Betsy") of Martinsville, a surfeit of nieces and nephews, and a plethora of grand nieces and nephews.

After her husband's death in the early 1970's she continued running that business, Snelling & Snelling, until her retirement in the early 80's.

She was a constant lover of wildlife, especially anything even remotely resembling a bluebird. Eventually, in order to move to Westminster-Canterbury when she was 87 age was persuaded to part with her beloved cat, Sparkie, who also shared her love bluebirds.

At Westminster her kindness and constant sense of humor in the face of life's ever present challenges touched many and created many friends.
