Following her divorce, she transferred to the Atlanta area in 1983 where she raised her family and worked in telecommunications until her retirement in 2008. Nancy is survived by her three devoted children, Julie Costello and Jennifer Koutny of Loganville, and Kenneth Costello of Lawrenceville; granddaughters Loren and Kaitlyn Costello, and grandsons Christopher Koutny and Liam Costello.
