Obituary

Nancy Sue Page Sauerbrey of Port Orange, FL, departed this life on March 15, 2022, in Ormond Beach, FL, after a brief illness.

Nancy was born on September 24, 1938, in Marietta, GA, the daughter of Robbert Wilson Page and Mary Sue Hicks Page. She attended Marietta High School, Auburn University, and the University of Georgia from where she graduated in 1960 with a degree in early childhood education. She married her beloved husband of sixty-two years, Otto Karl Sauerbrey of Kiel, Germany, and Greenville, SC, on September 17, 1960.

Over the years Nancy and Otto resided in Greenville, SC; Manchester, GA; Eastman, GA; Evansville, IN, and New Smyrna Beach, FL; before retiring to Port Orange. In Manchester, she put her early childhood education degree to work by opening and operating a pair of successful playschools. She and Otto teamed up to begin second careers as real estate agents when they relocated to New Smyrna Beach in 1992. They joined Covenant United Methodist Church in Port Orange where they faithfully worshiped and served for over 20 years.

“Peach” or “Grancy,” as her grandchildren affectionately called her, was full of life and had a feisty sense of humor. She was an expert bridge player, enjoyed travel, loved to cook, and was the ultimate southern hostess. Her favorite thing to do was spend time with her family, especially her seven grandchildren.

Nancy’s survivors include her husband Otto, her children Kim Bragg (Chip) of Thomasville, GA; Erich Sauerbrey of Columbia, SC; and Karla Torrey (Mike) of Lake Mary, FL; and her grandchildren Chris Bragg of Atlanta, GA; Taylor Bragg (Dottie) of Metairie, LA; Thomas Bragg of Savannah, GA; Brey Torrey of Bluffton, SC; and Ty, Beth, and Reagan Sauerbrey of Charlotte, NC.

She was predeceased by her parents and her sister Margaret Rose Page Culbertson.

The family will hold a memorial service at 1:00 p.m. on April 9 at Heathrow Country Club (north of Orlando). The address is 1200 Bridgewater Drive, Heathrow, FL 32746. Friends are welcome to join in this celebration of her life. In lieu of flowers, the family encourages blood donation at your local blood bank, or a memorial gift can be made to Be the Match at www.bethematch.org (800-627-7692).
