Nancy Ann Fortman [Peuss], of Henrietta, passed away Monday, May 16, 2022. She was 91 years old.
Nancy was born in Niagara Falls, NY, the daughter of the late Frederick and Anna Peuss. She was a graduate of St. Mary’s High School and a communicant of Church of the Good Shepherd in Henrietta for many years. Nancy was a long-time member of Seton club, enjoyed fashion and shopping, and read countless novels, sometimes twice. Perhaps that’s where she got her subtle wit and wisdom, her family would often say “what would Grandma think?”. Nancy always put others first and was happy to cook a great holiday meal including a delicious apple pie. Her chocolate chip cookies were the best. Some would say she was the nicest person they’ve ever met; all will miss her dearly.
She is predeceased by her husband, Robert Fortman, whom she was married to for 63 years, and two sisters, Jane Peuss and Eileen Marino. She is survived by her three children: Michael Fortman, Maureen (Jeffrey) Milne, and Mark (Holly) Fortman; three grandchildren whom she adored: Kellie (Thomas) Milne-Khairallah, Kevin Milne, and Ryan Fortman; and several nieces and nephews.
Friends and family are invited to Calling Hours from 4:00-6:00pm on Tuesday, May 24,2022.
