NANCY ELIZABETH ALICE O’CONNOR (RICE)
Nancy Elizabeth Alice O’Connor (Rice) passed away peacefully in the presence of family in Rancho Bernardo, CA on Tuesday, September 24, 2013. Born on May 23, 1924, to the late George and Catherine Rice in Lethbridge, Alberta, Nancy lived a rich and fulfilling life that spanned the Great Depression, World War II, the Civil Rights Movement, and other historical highlights that characterize the times related to “The Greatest Generation.” She had a happy childhood with her family and friends in Lethbridge and her beloved Waterton Lakes National Park. After graduating from St. Patrick’s High School in Lethbridge, Nancy attended McGill University in Montreal before enrolling at the Northwest Institute of Medical Technology in Minneapolis, where she earned a degree in medical technology. Over the next few years, she worked as a laboratory technician in several locations in the United States. In 1950, while working in Louisiana, she met the love of her life and future husband, John Thomas O’Connor, a young lieutenant in the U.S. Air Force. They married, began a family, and traveled the world as a U.S. military family, criss-crossing the globe to set up home in 14 locations.
Following the death of her beloved husband John in 2002, Nancy moved to Murrieta, CA in 2003 and then to Rancho Bernardo, CA in 2010. In addition to her loving husband John, Nancy is predeceased by parents Mary Catherine and George Rice; three brothers, Donald, George (who died in infancy), and Edward Rice; and sister-in-law Ruth Rice, all from Lethbridge.
Nancy is survived by her family: son John Patrick, from Atlanta, GA; daughter Mary Catherine (Rick) Reisman from Santa Rosa, CA; son George Michael (Linda) from Simi Valley, CA; daughter Maureen Elizabeth (Mike Basarich) from Las Vegas, NV; daughter Patricia Colleen (Larry) Combee from Murrieta, CA, and son Timothy Kelly (Karen) from Poway, CA; 13 grandchildren Shanna, Patrick, Shane, Arianna, Jared, Zane, Cameron, Cara, Sean, Ian, Erin, Molly, and Coley; and great-granddaughter Brooklyn. She also is survived by sister Mary (Al) Gray from Sydney, BC; sister-in-law Angie Rice from Lethbridge; nieces and nephews Bob (Mieke) Rice, Nancy (Jim) Noiles, George Rice, Scott Gray, Cathy (Kelly) Kennedy, Anne (Bruce) Oxley, Jon Rice, and Barb (Jon) Doan.
Nancy was a devout Catholic who believed strongly in the beauty and sanctity of life. Her life was filled with grace, kindness, and humor, and she had an uncanny knack for making people smile and feel good about themselves. A funeral mass will be held at Saint Michael’s Catholic Church, 15546 Pomerado Road, Poway, on Monday, September 30, at 10:30 am, followed by a private service at Miramar National Cemetery at 12:30 pm.
