Nancy "Ninny" Rank was the best person. Born on March 19, 1957, in Middletown, CT, she was the daughter of the late Ernest and Violet Brightbill Lechner.
Ninny is survived by her husband of 35 years, Sam, and her daughters Sami Rank, Katy (Corey) Rank Lev, and Betsy (Steve) Rank Kralovich, and the grandsons she adored, Ananda, Connor, Narayan, Miles, Felix, and Oren. She spent a New England childhood with her siblings Jane (Harry) Killian, Ron Lechner, Tom (Tracey) Lechner, and Judy (Dave) Leggat. She also was loved by nieces, nephews, inlaws, outlaws, and a wide web of cherished friends.
In her professional life and as a volunteer, Nancy always worked to care for others and anticipate and meet their needs. She was proud to serve on the board of DDS of Lebanon County in honor of her niece Greer. Her happily retired years included many trips to the beach, travels to support and love her daughters and grandchildren, road trips throughout the northeast for adventures with extended family, and doing lunch with friends. Ninny lived to love others, giving without end to all. In lieu of flowers, the family requests contributions to DDS of Lebanon County, 1126 Walnut St., Lebanon, PA.
