While attending Daniel McIntyre high school, she met the love of her life, Bill Kent, and they were married in 1942. Nancy went to work for the Eaton's Department Store and because she was an accomplished seamstress, she was promoted to the Department Head of Notions, a position she held for many years. In 1964, the Kent Family moved from Silver Heights, Winnipeg to West Vancouver, where Nancy resided until her passing. While in both Winnipeg and West Van. she was a very active member of the United Church. Services will be held at West Van United Church, 2062 Esquimalt Ave. at 2:00 p.m. February 4, 2013.
