Born the only daughter of Martin and Erna Theilig in 1932, in Boston Massachusetts. She grew up enjoying the beach at Cape Cod, dancing at local social events and working with her mother in their victory garden. She was involved in girls athletics in high school, including field hockey, archery and snow skiing. She completed her studies and became a cosmetologist after high school.
She married her high school sweetheart, Richard "Dick" Davis. They had three sons, Rick, Roy and Bob. In the early fifties, the family moved to Montverde, Florida and owned and operated the Montverde Fishing Camp on Lake Apopka.
She was involved with the local Women's group through her church, participating in and hosting local events and charity activities.

Nancy held jobs in local retail stores and doctor's offices. She was an active member of her Woodlands Lutheran Church community.
After the death of her husband, Dick, and later retiring, she enjoyed travel and being a beloved grandmother to her six grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
Nancy later married Clyde Hendrix, whom she met through the local Garden Club. They enjoyed gardening, traveling and socializing with a wide group of friends, both local and where they summered in North Carolina.
After Clyde's death, Nancy continued enjoying her activities with the Garden Club, AARP and playing cards with her circle of friends.
