Nancy K. Mahler Eckert

Nancy was a very special woman dearly loved by family and friends. She was accomplished in the culinary arts and handicrafts. She enjoyed travel and the outdoors. Nancy inspired many with her courage and good nature during her 2 ½ year battle with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). Nancy graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with a bachelor's degree in Archeology. She worked for Safetran/Econolite from 1987 to 2011. She is survived by her devoted husband of 36 years David; siblings: Pete, Alice (Willi), Georgina (Adolf) and her niece Nicole. No funeral is planned. A celebration of Nancy's life will be announced in the spring. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the ALS Association through the Nancy K. Eckert Memorial Fund at For more information about ALS visit
