May 29, 1934-July 20, 2013
Nancy Joanne Dobbins, of Mt Pleasant Michigan, passed through this life and into a better world on July 20, 2013 surrounded by her family. She was 79 years old. She was preceded in death by her devoted and loving husband, Richard Dobbins and daughter, Mary Dobbins, of Concord Michigan. Nancy blessed this world with five of her own children, Denise Kaiser, Linden Hagans, Hans Kaiser, Michel Kaiser and Margaret Means, all of whom survive her. Yet she was "Mom" and "Momma Nancy" to so many others. Nancy was a music major in college and her home was always filled with the sounds of classical music. Nancy's life was devoted to caring for others, her children, friends and extended family. She never, ever, turned anyone away. Wherever she was living, be it Colorado or Michigan, her home and dinner table were always open to those in need. Nancy didn't march to the typical drumbeat. This would frustrate some, but Nancy knew her heart. She was guided by her belief in God, Jesus and her own sense of spirituality. Nancy was loyal to compassion and humanity first, everything else came second. She leaves this world a better place and we all are better for having been loved by her.
