NANCY RUTH AXTON Obituary
Mother slipped away peacefully at home, surrounded by loved ones, early Friday morning, August 2, 2013. She was born October 14, 1928 in Springfield, Massachusetts. She was a devoted and loving wife, mother and Grammy. For close to 30 years her passion was the Homebound Ministry which she started at Calvary Baptist Church of Independence in the 1980s. Her love and compassion for those she visited is a testament to her most important values and gifts. She was also a friend of animals and contributed time and effort to Animal's Best Friends. She will be remembered as compassionate, loving, kind, and a friend to everyone. Her smile lit up the room when she entered. She had hugs for everyone she met. We will miss her big brown eyes and sense of humor. She is preceded in death by her husband and soul mate of 67 years, Ray, to whom she devoted her life and heart. She is survived by her daughter, Nancy-Ray and family, Ken, Lindsay and Kellie Borum; daughter Elaine and Charlotte Lanier; and daughter Barbara and Christopher Jaros. She leaves behind many close friends and loved ones who will miss her dearly. Mother's love was unconditional, never wavered, was strong and protective, and is in our hearts forever. Visitation will be at 11 a.m. with service following at 12 p.m. on Wednesday, August 7, 2013 at Floral Hills. Graveside service will follow. In lieu of flowers memorial tributes may be directed to Animal's Best Friends, 2302 South Crysler, Independence, MO 64052, or Wayside Waifs, 3901 Martha Truman Road, KCMO 64137.
