Obituary of Nancy P. Palmer

Nancy P. Palmer, 79, a resident of Greenwich, NY, passed away Thursday, August 25, 2022, at Saratoga Hospital after a brave battle with cancer.


She was born on July 22, 1943, in Troy, NY, and was the daughter of the late Harold and Pearl (Palmateer) Knibbs.


Nancy was a social butterfly, Friday and Saturday nights were spent at the Schuylerville American Legion.  She loved going out with her friends, listening to country music, and watching people line dance.  She enjoyed crocheting, especially making blankets for her children and grandchildren.  Her special time was anytime that she was with her family, especially during the holidays.  She also enjoyed getting her nails done and will be missed by all who knew her.


In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her husband George Palmer, and sisters Alice and Sylvia.


She is survived by her 6 children, Christina Quinn, Lisa Kane (Mike), Donald Palmer (BillieJo), April Palmer, George Palmer Jr. (Crystal), and Linda Quackenbush (John Jr.); brothers, William and Jim Knibbs; along with many grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, and nephews, all who will miss her very much.


The family wishes to thank the nursing staff at Saratoga Hospital Unit D-1 for their excellent care of Nancy.
