Nancy Kewley

Nancy Ann (Kaiser) Kewley, 59, passed away unexpectedly on March 9, 2016. Nancy was born May 7, 1956, to Francis and Idalee (Johnson) Showalter in Lincoln, Nebraska. Her mother later remarried and Nancy was adopted by her step-father, Arthur "Bud" Kaiser. She grew up in Winner, South Dakota, and attended Winner High School.

She married Harvey Kewley on July 7, 1974 and gave birth to a daughter, Anne Marie, in 1975. Having grown up in the 60's and early 70's, Nancy was a bit of a "hippie." She loved rock music, with the Beatles, Joni Mitchell and the Rolling Stones among her favorites. She burned incense, wore patchouli and collected vintage velvet tapestries in true bohemian fashion. She was also a bit of a clothes horse and liked to bargain hunt for designer finds. Nancy was disabled by severe mental illness. During her periods of wellness, she loved to sew and enjoy a good novel. She was an excellent cook and once dreamed of becoming a chef.

She was preceded in death by her parents and is survived by her daughter, Anne (Stephen) Bokas, and two granddaughters of Tampa, FL; brother Kevin (Doreen) Kaiser, Derby, KS, ; and sister, Lisa (Mark) Bjorneberg, Garretson.

A private memorial service is planned at a later date.
