Obituary for Shirley Nachazel

Shirley Nachazel (née Babel), 85, passed peacefully with her family beside her on January 18, 2019. She is remembered as the beloved wife of Edward and mother of Tim (Sara) Nachazel, Tom Nachazel (deceased), Teri Nachazel, and Tina (Lee) Tobias. She is also survived by her grandchildren, Mark and Emily. Shirley was a successful real estate professional and one of Reston’s original business leaders. Shirley touched the lives of everyone she met with her compassion, energy, and optimism. She loved art, travel, and fashion. We hope Heaven has enough closet space!

A life celebration is planned for March. If interested, please email Teri at for further details.
