Nancy Ellen Shriver (Newsom) was sent home on March 23rd, 2020, the day of our Lord. Nancy was the first of eight children born to Clarence and Willie Mae Newsom of Chickasha, OK, on February 10th, 1948. She attended St. Joseph Academy in Chickasha from kindergarten-high school graduating in 1966. Nancy attended the Oklahoma College for Liberal Arts majoring in Home Economics, later transferring to Oklahoma State University, graduating with her B.S. in Home Economics. Nancy served her internship at Barnes Hospital in St. Louis, MO completing all requirements to become a registered dietitian. Nancy began her 50-year career with the State of Oklahoma as a dietitian with Hissom Memorial Center in Sand Springs, OK. In 1993, Nancy moved to Enid to begin working at Norce and Greer Homes for the Disabled. Nancy spent several years as an inspector for the Oklahoma Health Department. After retiring from the State of Oklahoma, Nancy worked as a consultant for Liberty Health Systems until March 2020. Nancy married Charles Fullhart (preceding her in death in 2015) in May 1970. Together, they had three children; Mary Ellen, Clay, and Jeremy. Nancy found love again later in life and married Michael Shriver on February 11th, 2017. Nancy lived life to its fullest, traveling extensively with her family domestically and internationally, seeing the wonders of the world. She enjoyed running and was involved with the Enid Running Club for many years, helping organize races. She was a fantastic cook and shared her skills by volunteering her time alongside her husband Mike at Our Daily Bread for several years feeding the less fortunate. She was also an animal lover who rescued her beloved Tater (passed) and Bella and loved her adopted (by marriage) Guinevere. Nothing was more important to Nancy than her love for our Lord and her dedication to her church. She has many signs in her home that welcome people just as she welcomed many friends into her heart devoting herself to her church St. Gregory’s. Most of all, Nancy was a loving and devoted daughter, mother, sister, and wife. Nancy was preceded in death by her paternal and maternal grandparents, parents Clarence and Willie May Newsom, brothers Daniel, Tommy, George, sister Mary Jean, grandson William Fullhart II, and stepson Michael Shriver II.
