Nanette Lucille "Nan" Bloom

May 12, 1928 - April 15, 2019

Nanette Lucille Bloom, age 90, passed peacefully, joining her Lord and beloved husband Jerry on April 15th, 2019 in Chesapeake, VA. She was born to Theodore and Lucille May 12, 1928 in Far Rockaway, NY.

Nan was a graduate of Hamilton High in Hamilton, NJ. After graduation she was a telephone operator for Bell Telephone which she loved, after which she enjoyed a career as a bookkeeper at numerous companies throughout her life until retirement. She was a member of St. Thomas Episcopal in Chesapeake, VA. She was an avid reader, always well dressed, loved to cook, watch NCIS and to hear a good joke.  Nan enjoyed people, conversation, music, a glass of wine or a beer, an elegant restaurant or a fun pub. Her loving God, her family and close friends were what she treasured most in life. She was a compassionate woman with a wicked sense of humor, a nurturing soul who inspired others to love and to have fun! She is so dearly loved and will be missed by all who knew her kindness.

Nanette is survived by her daughter Diane Stabinski (Stephen), her son Michael Hertkorn (Elvira), Stepson Gary Bloom (Isabel) her Grandchildren; Lauren Stabinski, Steven Hertkorn, Kevin Hertkorn, Mark Hertkorn and her many Nephews and Niece. Nan was predeceased by her brother Bill and former husband Edward F. Hertkorn.
