Obituary for Nancy Formato

Nancy Beryl (Self) Formato was born on April 3, 1941 to Lillian and Albert Self and raised in Athens, NY. Nancy’s radiant beauty, effervescent personality and undeniable warmth earned her numerous beauty pageant crowns, from Albany’s Tulip Queen to Miss New York State – and a top spot in the Miss USA Pageant in 1966. A scholarship at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts brought Nancy to Manhattan, where she became a fashion and runway model before turning to publishing at the New Yorker Magazine.
But Nancy’s true pride, passion and joy were her family and friends – all of whom cherish the light and laughter that Nancy brought to every conversation and the love she bestowed on every relationship.
She is desperately missed by her children, Jill Andruss and Austin Formato; their spouses, Jim Andruss and Alicia Formato; and grandchildren, Abigail and William Andruss; and by the friends she has remained so close with throughout the years.
A memorial service will be held at Westchester Funeral home on Sunday June 4th from 2-6pm – with eulogies beginning at 5pm.
