Bradshaw, Nancy Swanberg - Quincy  
QUINCY -- Nancy Swanberg Bradshaw, formerly of Quincy, passed away May 21, 2016 in Austin, Texas, at the age of 81 due to complications related to multi-infarct dementia. A native of Quincy, Nancy was born Nancy Gail Swanberg on May 15, 1935, to Dr. William Harold Swanberg, originally of Philadelphia, Pa., and Mildred Chapman Wilber, originally of Yellville, Ark. Her father served as the local radiologist and the family enjoyed a level of prominence in the community. They resided in the historic home erected in 1883 by Colonel Edward Prince at 1680 Maine. Nancy attended Webster Elementary School and, due to her intelligence, started college at the early age of 15 attending Francis Shimer Junior College, then part of the University of Chicago. She later studied at the Sorbonne in Paris and at the University of Missouri-Columbia, where she was a member of the Chi Omega Sorority and engaged in student government as well as the Association of Women Students, earning a bachelor of arts in English at the age of 20 in 1955. Throughout her late adolescence and early adult years, Nancy enjoyed a variety of budding careers including modeling, writing and journalism. She also traveled extensively throughout Europe and spent summers at the Swanberg family retreat on West Twin Lake, near Nisswa, Minn., often attending Camp Lake Hubert for girls. She continued to spend summers at West Twin Lake until the 1980s. In 1956, Nancy married Joseph Don Isaacs (1933-2008) of Faucett, Mo., whom she had met while attending the University of Missouri. While the marriage only lasted a few years, the union produced two children, Joseph Bradley Isaacs in Sacramento, Calif., and Brenda Gail Isaacs (Booth) in Kansas City, Mo.; she remained friendly with the Isaacs family throughout her life. In the 1960s, Nancy moved to Houston, Texas. There she wrote articles for the Houston Post and taught medical writing at Baylor College of Medicine. Among her many accomplishments, she was a 1963 Fellowship Recipient of the American Medical Writers Association, an organization founded by her father in 1940. In 1969, Nancy married John Elliot Bradshaw (1935-2016) of Houston, who would later become a best-selling author, nationally known speaker and television personality. Nancy helped fuel John's early rise to prominence by marketing his lectures and workshops through Bradshaw Cassettes, a company she founded. She was an active member of Palmer Memorial Episcopal Church, participated in various educational organizations in Houston, and was heavily involved in the gestalt therapy community. Married 20 years, Nancy and John had one son, John Elliot Bradshaw Jr., and continued as business associates for several years following their divorce in 1989. They remained lifelong friends. In the 1990s, Nancy moved to Durango, Colo., where she enjoyed a stately home in the mountains along the Animas River and a flourishing life in the community. During her years there she participated in equestrian activities and local organizations, most notably Bandanas & Boots, a charity initiative raising funds for local nonprofits. In 2008, she returned to Texas to be closer to her children and grandchildren. Her struggle with dementia began with an early diagnosis in 2000; the affliction slowly progressed until she required full-time care. Her final years were spent at Silverado Memory Care Community in Bee Cave, Texas, just north of Austin. She was surrounded by her children at the time of her death. Throughout her life, Nancy had a remarkable financial acumen and a wide range of pursuits and hobbies, each of which she approached with an intensity and single-mindedness that reflected her high intelligence and eclectic interests. Often reserved in public, she had a wonderful vitality and earnestness, a deep love for family and friends, and endearing eccentricities that made her a unique and remarkable person. She is survived by her eldest sister, Jo Ann Spiva Kimball of Poway, Calif.; son, Joseph Bradley Isaacs of Austin; daughter, Brenda Isaacs Booth of Austin; son, John Elliot Bradshaw Jr. of Houston; grandchildren, Liam Elliot Booth, Jackson Cowdrey Booth and Cassie Rose Isaacs, all of Austin; and numerous nephews, nieces and cousins spanning the country. Nancy was preceded in death by her father, William Harold Swanberg, M.D. (1891-1970); mother, Mildred Wilber Swanberg (1901-1987); brother, (William Harold) Bill Swanberg Jr. (1920-1987); and sister, Mary Louise Spiva Burnham (1926-1999). SERVICES: 11 a.m. Saturday, June 25, 2016. at Palmer Memorial Episcopal Church, 6221 Main St., Houston, with the Rev. Neil Alan Willard conducting. Nancy's remains will be interred with those of her father at Woodland Cemetery Mausoleum, Quincy, Ill. ARRANGEMENTS: Bradshaw-Carter Memorial and Funeral Services, 1734 W.
