Sandra ‘Sandy’ Chase Nash, 56, of Clarksville passed away Sunday, Sept. 2, 2012. She was born in Methuen, Mass. on March 5, 1956 to Charlie and Billie Chase of Wilmington, N.C.
A graduate of Bluestone Senior High School and Wilton Method Decorating Courses, Sandy was the owner of The Pink Giraffe in Clarksville. Her business and life philosophy was to continuously stretch out her neck to serve others and she did so through doing what she loved the most — cooking, catering, decorating all-occasion cakes, and always welcoming friends as “family” in her home-style restaurant.
In addition to her parents, she is survived by her husband of 20 years, Benny Nash; three daughters, Breidi Norwood and her husband, Kenneth Michael, of Warrenton, N.C., Tammy Tillotson and her husband, Christopher Coleman, of Chase City, Brianne Tillotson and her long-time friend, Jeff Hamilton, of Buena Vista; three grandsons, Torre Caparatta, and Aiden and Dylan Coleman; and brother, Michael Chase and his wife, Debbie, of Clarksville.
A memorial service will be held Thursday at 1 p.m. at Jamieson Memorial United Methodist Church in Clarksville.
In celebration of her life, the family invites all her customers and friends to join them as they open The Pink Giraffe one final time Saturday, Sept. 8, from 2 to 4 p.m.
