Nancie Gee passed away peacefully at Coming Home Hospice in San Francisco on November 24, 2014 after a nine-month struggle with abdominal cancer. She was 74.

Born to Edward and Helen Gee in Lambert, Mississippi, Nancie was the youngest of five children, moving with her family to California at the age of 12. Graduating from Oakland High, she went on to earn a B.A. from San Francisco State University and did graduate work at the University of Washington. In 1968, Nancie published Reflections in Pike Place Markets, a photo book showing scenes around the Seattle landmark. In 1987, after 12 years in New York, Nancie moved to San Francisco, where she worked as a legal secretary until retiring in 2005. Afterwards, Nancie focused her energies on investments and photography, conducting workshops on the former, and using the latter to visually document pigeons. Online articles about her pigeon photography were published in SFBay.ca, San Francisco Weekly, and the Noe Valley Voice .

She is survived by her sisters Mable and Lucy, six nephews, four nieces, five grand-nephews, and three grand-nieces, all of whom live in California. A private memorial service will be held at Unity Spiritual Center in San Francisco on January 24. Memorial gifts in her name may be made to the Castro Senior Center, 110 Diamond Street, San Francisco, CA 94114.
