Nancy Lee Knickerbocker Jernigan
June 10, 1953 - March 24, 2021

Nancy Lee Knickerbocker Jernigan went to be with her Lord and Savior on Wednesday, March 24, 2021. She passed away at home with her devoted husband of 50 years, Tom, at her side. Nancy was born in Austin, Texas, on June 10, 1953, to Verne F. Knickerbocker and Jane Wahlenmaier Knickerbocker Wood. As a child, she moved to San Angelo, Texas, where she graduated from San Angelo Central High School in 1971. At the age of 17, Nancy met the love of her life, Thomas “Tom” Calvin Jernigan, Jr., with whom she has two amazing children, Thomas “Trey” Calvin Jernigan, III, and Jana Renee Jernigan Harden. After moving to Angleton, Texas, Nancy attended the University of Houston Clear Lake and graduated with summa cum laude honors. She began her career as an accountant shortly afterward, and the family moved to their permanent home in Lake Jackson, Texas.

Nancy had an unwavering faith in God. In fact, one of her first dates with Tom was to take him to church. Nancy and Tom were founding members of the New Beginnings Community Church in Lake Jackson. Nancy was a vivacious and energetic woman. Everyone who met Nancy always remarked how happy she was. She had an infectious smile and laughter that could make anyone smile. Anyone who knew Nancy, knew her love for her dogs. Over the years, she and Tom adopted and fostered many boxers. Even while struggling with her illness, her primary concern was always for her sweet Sassy-girl and big boy Sam. After retiring, Nancy enjoyed traveling with Tom around the world. They became especially fond of Costa Rica where they visited often and made many friends. Her favorite memories were ones spent with her family, especially around the holidays. Of all her many accomplishments, she is most proud of her two children and granddaughter.

Nancy was preceded in death by her parents, Verne and Jane, step-father, Donald H. Wood, and step-mother, Kathy Frances Knickerbocker; her parents-in-law, Thomas Calvin Jernigan, Sr., and Clara Honea Jernigan; and her brother-in-law, William “Bill” David Jernigan, Sr. She is survived by her beloved husband, Tom; her brother Edward “Ed” Knickerbocker; her son Trey and his wife, Jessica Weik Jernigan; her daughter, Jana; her granddaughter, Claira-Elysse Reagan Jernigan; and her step-mother, Norma Y. Knickerbocker.

Family and friends are invited to the visitation on Wednesday, March 31st at 10:30am, followed by a celebration of her life at 11am. Visitation and celebration services will be held at New Beginnings Community Church, 400 North Dixie Drive, Lake Jackson, Texas, 77566. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Alzheimer’s Association (www.alz.org) and Lone Star Boxer Rescue (www.lonestarboxerrescue.com).
