Nancy K. Lock Benes, age 58, of Cordova, Tennessee, died on Friday, August 9, 2019, at 10:26 am in Barnes Jewish Hospital, St. Louis, Missouri.

Nancy was born July 12, 1961 in Quincy, Illinois, the daughter of Wayne and Mary Whiteaker Lock. She married Philip A. Benes on December 27, 1986 in Quincy, IL. He survives.

She was a 1979 Quincy High School graduate and served as president of her senior class.

She and Philip moved to the state of Maryland where Nancy taught and worked in development and administration at The King's Christian Academy. While there, she was part of a small group of people who were instrumental in building The King's Christian Academy into one of the most well developed schools in southern Maryland. Nancy completed her career as a teacher and then as the middle school principal at Living Word Christian School, O'Fallon, MO.

Phil, Torri , David and family. Joy and I want to express our deepest condolences for your loss. Nancy was a very special person to us more like family than a friend. One of my fondest memories is having dinner with Phil and Nancy whether at our house or theirs having an iced tea, grilling burgers , smoking ribs or having a bowl of Nancy’s awesome chili and our discussions around how we would solve the worlds problems. Nancy will truly be missed. John & Joy Tymony.
