December 26, 2017 | Wilmington, DE

Nancy Cameron Dilworth, age 83, passed away at home on December 26, 2017.

She grew up in Greenfield, MA, the daughter of Samuel Midgely Cameron and Kathryn Ogden Cameron. Nancy and her sister, Sally, had an idyllic small town childhood with extended family close by. Nancy was a graduate of Northfield Mount Hermon and Simmons College. She had a long and fulfilling career as a Licensed Physical Therapist.

Nancy loved travelling, reading, movies, local theatre, gardening, needlepoint, her family, and the occasional episode of the Real Housewives. She felt so lucky to have great friends who helped her stay social and active. Nancy is survived by her daughters, Angela Johnston (BJ), Sara Eleuterio, and Emily Mitchell (Joseph); six grandchildren, Kyle, Megan, Katie, Sam, Will and Ethan; four great grandchildren; her sister Sally Whiston; and her best friend, Marnie King.

Thank you to Compassionate Care Hospice, especially Kheila and Wendy, who provided exceptional care and became our friends over the past year.

  3. I knew Nancy many years ago as I started my career as a physical therapist. She was my go-to person and mentor at the Delaware Curative Workshop back in the 1970s. Nancy was a wonderful, compassionate and caring physical therapist who could maintain her calm, professional demeanor but still have fun at work. My sympathies for your loss of this wonderful lady.
