She was the daughter of the late Carl and Mary (Hrelec) Zaluski; wife to Ed Hermez; mother to three children and grandmother to four grandchildren. Nancy devoted her life to supporting and loving her family.
She was happiest with freshly painted nails, perfectly curled hair and a full house crowded around her dining table.

She was a member of Christ Our Savior Parish, St. Nicholas Church in Struthers and the Croatian Fraternal Union Lodge 504, where she served as Nest Member and Trustee.
Nancy is survived by her husband, Ed, whom she married on May 9, 1981; three children, Edward (Crystal) Hermez, Nicholas (Melissa) Hermez and Leann Hermez; two sisters, Charlotte (Keith) Jennings and Kathy Pascarella and four grandchildren, Owen, Jaxton, Norah and Easton.
