Nancy Jeanette McCallum
May 27, 1939 – September 24, 2018
Nancy Jeanette McCallum, of Williamson, Georgia, passed away Monday, September 24, 2018 at age 79.

Nancy was born in Atlanta at Emory Hospital on May 27, 1939. She is the daughter of Rupert Ellis Carter and Alma Louise Reinhardt. As a little girl, she took dance lessons at the historical Victor H. Kriegshaber House on Moreland Ave. Nancy grew up in East Atlanta. She attended Whitefoord Elementary School and graduated from Murphy High School.

She met her husband, Ralph G. McCallum, Jr., at Georgia Tech. They were married at Peachtree Christian Church in 1958. Soon after, Ralph was sent to Bangkok, Thailand as a lieutenant with the U.S. Army, attached to the Central Intelligence Agency. They lived there for about 3 years. While there, Nancy attended the American University, where she took many business classes.

Nancy was a medical and legal secretary her whole career. Close to her heart was being a master gardener. She was a member of The Saint Andrews Society of Atlanta, where she held officer positions. She was also a member of the Burns Club of Atlanta. Through the blood, sweat, and tears, Nancy loved working to restore her C.1826 home. Nancy was also very involved with the Republican Party, getting her start with the Dekalb County Republicans in the 1960's and 70's, with her husband. Nancy had the honor of giving the gift of life to her son, Allan, by donating one of her kidneys to him. Nancy was the world's best mom.

She is survived by her sons, Ralph Gould McCallum, III and Allan Neil McCallum; sister, Susan (Dean) Miller; nieces, Stephanie (Dave) Glander and Megan Lewis; first cousins, John (Linda) Lounsbury and Camille (David) Downs; and many other cousins, nephews, and nieces, which she loved. She is predeceased by her husband, Colonel Ralph G. McCallum, Jr.
