Nancy Lee Hunt Crider, age 58, entered eternal rest on September 28, 2020, with her children by her side. She was the daughter of the late John Lewis Hunt and Betty Oregean Roberts Hunt, both of Bamberg, SC.
Ms. Crider was born in DeLand, FL, on May 18, 1962, the youngest of three girls. She moved with her family to Bamberg, SC as a child and remained a resident there until her death. Ms. Crider was an active member of Spring Branch Baptist Church. She served as a former Sunday School teacher, dedicated choir member, and leader of the Operation Christmas Child Shoebox mission project. She loved crafting and making handmade items for her family. As a childcare worker, Ms. Crider or “Nanny” as she was affectionately known by many, loved all her babies she reared over the years in her profession.
Her greatest joy could be found in her unconditional, unending love for her family. She was a proud mother, nana, sister, aunt and friend. Ms. Crider was the pillar in her family, a strong constant with a humble heart and a fierce love for Jesus. She will be greatly missed by all that knew her.
Ms. Crider is survived by one son, Neal Crider, Jr. (Emily); one daughter, Amanda Crider Nesbitt (Charles); three grandchildren, Caroline Lee Bishop, Brody Crider and Madelyn Crider; two sisters, Rebecca Hunt (Wesley) and Victoria Folk (Eddie); two special nephews, Hughie Gray and Kevin Gray; a special niece, Tori Bunch; and a host of other nieces and nephews. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brother, Thomas Gordon Craft.
