She enjoyed swimming, water and snow skiing and fishing for Kokanee with her dad at Odell Lake. Nancy was a Paul Harris Fellow Notary Rotarian. She traveled with family, friends and later became caregiver for her parents. She walked every day and she will be remembered for her friendly wave and smile.
