She was known for her quick wit and street smarts — so to get one up on her was always hard! She was very much a people person who loved to tell of adventures and stories of her life. She enjoyed singing and playing guitar, along with fishing, camping and cards.
Nancy was baptized a Jehovah Witness on Aug. 13, 2011, and devoted her life to spreading the good news of the Bible to everyone she met. Her love for Jehovah and the promise of everlasting life in a perfect paradise made her smile on what her future would be.
She is survived by her extended family and friends.
Nancy was preceded in death by her mother and father; sister in-law, Carol; and niece, Jeanie Ann.
