Nancy Lee Bringelson, 66, longtime New Raymer resident, died Saturday, November 30, 2013 at Valley View Villa in Fort Morgan after a long, courageous battle with Alzheimer's Disease.
Nancy was born to Paul and Nellie (Cnockaert) Johnson in Brush on September 8, 1947. She attended Fort Morgan schools and graduated from Fort Morgan High School in 1965 where she was active in Morgan High Singers.
She married Dennis Bringelson on June 28, 1975.
Nancy began her passion for teaching as a young girl, always playing school with her siblings on snow days. After graduating from college, she taught elementary school in Merino from 1969 until 1975, and later at Prairie School in New Raymer from 1975 until failing health forced her to retire in 2005. She was a member of the National Education Association, as well as National Mathematics.
Nancy was a member of the United Presbyterian Church in Fort Morgan. Although teaching was her passion, her family was her greatest joy in life.
Survivors include her husband, Dennis Bringelson of New Raymer; her son, Denis Bringelson and his wife, Dashanda, along with her beloved grandchildren, Brennan, Liam, and Lorelai, all of Fort Morgan; her daughter, Stacy Rehor and her husband, Adam, of Fort Lupton; her mother, Nellie Johnson of Fort Morgan; her brother, Paul Johnson Jr. of Fort Morgan; her four sisters, Patsy Johnson of Fort Morgan, Linda Magnuson of Brush, Vicky Brunkhardt of Kansas, and Betty Henry of Parker, CO. Nancy is also survived by her nephew, Kevin Davis and his wife, Kimberly, of Fort Morgan, along with numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family and friends.
Nancy was preceded in death by her father, Paul Johnson.
