Natalie J. Nancy Rachwal, 87, of Punta Gorda passed away May 19, 2019. She was born November 6, 1931 in Passaic, NJ. Nancy was a financial analyst and retired from Meldisco in 1993; she moved to Punta Gorda in 1995 from Saddle Brook, NJ. Nancy was a wonderful mother who was full of life and love. Nancy was gracious and caring. She was an excellent cook and extremely hospitable and a lot of fun. She was adventurous and loved to travel. Nancy was strong and determined and was known as a tough cookie. She loved flowers, turtles, gardening, decorating, dancing, knitting, reading and a good mystery. She enjoyed shopping and looking for bargains. While Nancy spoke her mind, we knew where she was coming from and her compassion and understanding were clearly evident. Nancy was a beautiful lady who will be deeply missed by her family and friends who loved her. Nancy was an inspiration and a gem. She was the best mother in the world. We have all been blessed by being touched by Nancy's life. Nancy leaves behind by her daughter, Christine Rachwal; son, Kenneth (Dana) Rachwal; and four grandchildren.
