Nancy Ann Hoyt

January 16, 1949 — December 1, 2023

Nancy “Nance” Ann Hoyt (née Titus), 74, of Ocala, Florida, passed away on

December 1, 2023, due to heart failure. She was born on January 16,

1949, in Port Jervis, New York. She was known by most of her friends as

“Nance”. Nance grew up in Red Bank, NJ and attended Red Bank High

School. Her parents owned Irwin Marine in Red Bank. She was a loving

grandmother, an artist, a collector, a freethinker, a strong role model for

independent women, and a thoughtful friend and willing to do whatever she

could to help someone out. She was known across Florida and the

southern states for her exceptional West Highland White Terrier dog

bloodline and breeding. People would drive across state lines to get one of

her puppies and she was very proud of her line. You couldn’t visit her

without having a dog following you around, licking your face or sitting on

your lap. They were a major part of her life. She also loved to work on her

farm, working on one task or another she would always be kept busy with

the “next project”. She believed in hard work and perseverance and tried to

instill those core values in those she cared about. She loved making

birdhouses especially and was thinking of making a Pinterest site to sell

them. She had an eye for detail and impeccable styling, and it showed

especially well in her home. Her love of horses and carriages was evident

as she used them in her designs. She could take a complete wreck and

make something beautiful out of it. Like a diamond in the rough Nancy was

able to see the beauty in something that the rest of us couldn’t. Nance

valued her friendships deeply and was very generous in constantly gifting

friends and family with the simplest of gifts just as an expression of her love

for them. These last few years have been difficult for her with battling

COPD as she wasn’t able to do as much as she always did prior and being

the independent woman that she was, that was very difficult for her. Most

usually say that now a person’s soul can be at peace. For those of you that

know her well, you know this would not be true for her. She’s probably

sitting somewhere mad because she wasn’t finished yet and still had

“things to do”. “Sun Meadow Farm” will never be the same. Nancy will be

dearly missed by all of us. Help us celebrate her life by attending the

memorial service which will be held on Saturday, February 24, at 12 pm at

Nancy's Farm located at 537 NW 100th Street in Ocala, Florida, 34475-

1031. Please join us in honoring and remembering her. Your presence and

support during this time are greatly appreciated. Nancy is survived by two

younger siblings, Susan Mickley and Channing Irwin, her two sons, Todd

Hoyt and Charles Hoyt, and a grandchild, Winter Hoyt. She was preceded

Fredrick Titus. Please consider donating to Quality-of-Life Rehab & Foster
