Nanci Harris Haggerty, 53, passed away Wednesday, March 20, 2019 at home surrounded by loving family.

Born in Sussex, NJ, on August 30, 1965 to Richard and Lesley Harris, Nanci was raised in Branchville, NJ where she attended Branchville Elementary School and High Point Regional High School. In 1980, she petitioned the High Point Board of Education to establish the school’s first girls’ tennis team. After graduating high school in 1982, Nanci went on to major in fashion merchandising at Centenary College and subsequently opened In the Pink women’s clothing boutique, located in Branchville & Augusta, NJ. In 1991, she relocated the boutique to South Hill, Virginia, where she married Daryl Haggerty and lived for 3 years before returning to her hometown of Branchville. Nanci loved her family and was blessed with four children and two grandsons.

Nanci was an avid competitive tennis player at Sparta Athletic Club and played on the Garden State Indoor League Level A team. She was a member of Lafayette Federated Church. Formerly an active member of the Northwest Christian School Association and its corresponding Parent Teacher Fellowship, she managed and promoted their annual fall craft fair for ten years. Most recently, she was employed by the Sussex County Farm and Horse Show as the manager of the craft tent at the NJ State Fair. Above her love of tennis and crafts, Nanci loved God, her family and friends.
