Nancy L. Trumpeter Beringer, 90, a beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, passed away peacefully on October 31, 2023. Born in Rochester, Pennsylvania, she was a lifelong resident of Monaca and New Brighton and a descendent of one of Monaca’s original founders. She was known for her kindness, dedication, and tireless service to others.
Nancy was the daughter of the late Gilbert and Evelyn (Miller) Trumpeter. She was predeceased by her husband, W. H. Clay Beringer, Jr., her brothers: Gilbert John Trumpeter, William E Trumpeter and Robert A Trumpeter, and her sisters-in-law Nancy Beth Trumpeter and Susan Trumpeter.
Nancy is survived by her son, W. H. Clay Beringer III of Monaca, and her daughter, Bonnie E. Holt and her husband, Bruce of Apex, North Carolina. She was immensely proud of her granddaughter, Dr. Brooke E. Holt, and her husband, Daniel Corcoran of Kernersville, North Carolina. Her joy was multiplied with the birth of her great-grandson, Weston Corcoran. Nancy also leaves behind her cousin, Mary Kay McMillen, of Beaver Falls, who was as dear as a sister to her, her sister-in-law, Deborah Trumpeter of Beverly Hills, Florida, and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins from the Trumpeter family.
A graduate of Monaca High School, Class of 1951, Nancy went on to earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Home Economics from Pennsylvania State University in 1955. Her passion for education and service led her to a fulfilling career. Nancy started her professional journey at D.T. Watson, then taught dietetics at CCBC. She was later employed at New Horizon School and concluded her career as a substitute teacher at Beaver Valley Intermediate Unit.
Nancy was a lifelong member of the Monaca United Methodist Church, where she served in various capacities. Her faith was a significant part of her life, and she found joy in teaching Sunday School, serving on the Administrative Council, and being an active member of the United Methodist Women. Her leadership abilities were evident when she served as president of the Monaca Jr. Women’s Club and the New Brighton Band Parents. Nancy was also a proud member of the “Club 51” Card Club, (consisting of a group of high school friends), and she was an active participant in the high school reunion committee.
Nancy was a woman of many interests. She took pleasure in cooking and baking. She was known for her generosity, often lending a helping hand to those in need. Nancy loved traveling. Above all, she relished family gatherings and the precious moments spent with her loved ones.
