Obituary for Nancy J. McKinney Kampsen

Nancy Kampsen, of Norfolk, VA, passed away August 13, 2018, surrounded by her family. She was born to the late John and Lula McKinney in Falmouth, Kentucky.

She was employed with Gibson Art Company in Cincinnati, Ohio, where she met and married Navy man, Jerome Kampsen, who survives her passing. Moving permanently to Norfolk, Virginia in 1956, she called Virginia home ever since.

Nancy was employed by Virginia National Bank for 10 years. Upon leaving banking, she spent 25 years in real estate, ending her career with Long and Foster Realtors. She was a graduate of the Realtors Institute.

As a charter member of the Bay Haven Garden Club, she studied gardening, landscape design, and flower arranging. She was an active member of the club for nearly 60 years.

Although reserved, Nancy’s strengths and grit were often underestimated. She enjoyed travel, reading, bridge, music, and most of all, her family. She could be described as striking, stylish, graceful, generous to a fault, a loving mother and grandmother (known as Mimi) and an avid recycler.

She is also survived by her daughter, Karen Mounaime Strathmann (Barry); son, Gregory Kampsen (Robin); grandsons, Derick Kampsen and Ryan Mounaime; granddaughters, Leslie Mounaime and Kerri Kampsen; and her sister, Ruth Woods of Mason, Ohio.

Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her beloved son, Jeffrey Kampsen and son-in-law, Dr. Marwan Mounaime, one sister and three brothers
