Nancy was a Godly woman and loved the Lord our God with all of her mind, body and spirit. Nancy was an obedient daughter, encouraging sister, supporting wife, forgiving mother, loving grandmother, respected teacher and trusted friend.
Nancy lived all over the United States and the world as the wife of a Marine Corps Attack Pilot.

Nancy took great joy and pleasure in sharing the word of the God, fellowshipping with Christians, playing with her Granddaughters, and sharing her family history and growing up.

Nancy was a born again Christian and proud of it. Nancy had a great sense of humor, an incredible memory and an extremely strong faith in God.
