Rhodes, Nancy Gilbert, - 87, of Ocean City, Nancy had a rich and fulfilling life, which she lovingly shared for 55 years with David Rhodes, who sadly passed away in April of this year. Nancy raised two caring attentive sons, Scott Becker (Vicky) of South Riding VA and Gilbert Becker (Laura) of Winston-Salem NC. She was a resident of Absecon, NJ for 64 years until she and David relocated to Wesley Manor in Ocean City in 2010. She was a graduate of The Friends School in Atlantic City NJ and Women's College, Greensboro NC which is now UNC Greensboro. After College, she taught in Brigantine NJ at Central and North School for 37 years. She was an active member of NJEA and a staunch advocate of Teachers Rights. She easily transitioned from one side of the bargaining table to the other, in her position as a member of the Absecon School Board, a position she held for 10 years. Nancy's volunteerism did not end with the School Board. She was a Member of the Board of the Methodists Homes in NJ and actively participated in the development of the Shores Community in Ocean City. In addition to her work with the Methodist Homes, she was a member of the Auxiliary of the Atlantic City Medical Center. Nancy is also survived by her brother, Bruce T.
