Nan Croley (1939-2006)

We are very sad to have to announce the recent passing of OWA member Nan Croley, architect with John Matthews Architects in San Mateo. Nan lived in San Francisco since 1983 with a summer home in Gasquet, California on the Smith River.

Nan served on the Organization of Women Architects Steering Committee for the first time in 1985 -1986, and more recently has been an active organizer of the OWA Retreats. She supported the ballet, theater and environmental causes, and especially appreciated the work of the Sierra Club.

Nan died of heart failure at her San Francisco home on March 23, 2006. She is survived by her cousin, Thomas Croley and family of Cleveland, Ohio where she grew up and many Bay Area and OWA friends who will miss her greatly.

A gathering to celebrate her life will be held on Sunday May 7th from 2-5pm at the Sausalito Yacht Club, a place Nan liked to go. There is no street address for the Yacht Club. It is located next to the Golden Gate Ferry Landing in Sausalito.

Please share your thoughts and memories of Nan with us during the afternoon.

RSVP: Wendy Bertrand by May 4
