MECHANICVILLE- Nancy Catherine Pregent Fabi, 82, passed away Saturday July 17, 2021 following a long battle with Alzheimer’s Disease. Nancy was born and lived in Mechanicville for her entire life. Quite possibly “the best lady ever”, Nancy was a dedicated housewife who raised five children as well as nine grandchildren. Additionally, she babysat children for more than 30 years, loving and caring for each of them as if they were her own family. She wanted nothing more than to have her family around her at all times, including sometimes rowdy Thursday and Sunday family dinners. She and her husband Carl enjoyed spending time with their lifelong best friends Mary Carol and Joseph Lanzone, going on weekend trips, winter getaways in Florida, going to the Northway Church for mass, eating at one of their favorite restaurants, D’Raymond’s, and playing cards. Nancy also had a lifelong friendship with Phyllis Verdile, who helped her look as beautiful on the outside as she was on the inside.
