She was born in Marion, Ind., on April 18, 1942, to the late Paul and Hazel (Roberts) Fugate. On Dec. 13, 1969, in Piqua, she married Henry W. Cotterman. He preceded her in death on Feb. 14, 1999.
Nancy is survived by two daughters and sons-in-law, Kelly and Tony Wood, of Piqua, and Teresa and Rick Nichols, of Piqua; two sons, Greg Highley, of Piqua, and Mike Cotterman, of Piqua; 11 grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by one daughter-in-law, Jill Highley; and one sister, Patricia Staton.
