Nancy Charles 1946 - 2018

Nancy Jean Charles passed away May 21 in Sisters after a long battle with Parkinson's and Lewy Body Disease, with Andrew, her husband of 11 years, at her side.

Nancy was born to Irene and Sam Charles in Santa Barbara, Ca. and grew up in Tustin, Ca., graduating from Tustin High School in 1964. At the age of 20, upon hearing that United Airlines was hiring flight attendants, she accompanied a friend to an interview. Nancy at 5'9" was told she was too tall to be a flight attendant, but made such a positive impression that she was hired on the spot to work in ticketing and reservations. Nancy spent the next 34 years with United Airlines, culminating in her position as Supervisor of Ground Operations at Santa Barbara Airport until her retirement in September of 2001.

Shortly after, Nancy returned to school at Santa Barbara Business College where she graduated first in her class. With a passion for kids and athletics, she went on to serve as assistant administrator at the Paige Youth Center in Santa Barbara. Nancy and her husband, Andrew, have lived in Sisters since 2007.

Nancy is survived by husband Andrew, sister Judi; son Rob and daughter-in-law Katie, son Tim and daughter-in-law Shruti; and grandchildren Kieren, Dillon, and Maaya. Nancy will be remembered as a devoted mom, wonderful wife and sister, and a great friend to so many. A Celebration of Nancy's Life will be held later this summer.
