Patti Ann Nancolas
Patti Ann Nancolas, 60, of Caldwell, Idaho, passed peacefully from this life and returned home to her Heavenly Father on April 11, 2017 after a courageous 9 month battle with cancer. She was born April 16, 1956 in Nampa, Idaho to Harvey LeRoy Miles and Ermadean Taylor Miles. Patti had many fond childhood memories with her two older brothers, Bob and Tom Miles. She attended school in Notus and Caldwell; graduating from Caldwell High in 1974.
She married her high school sweetheart, Michael P. Nancolas, on November 1, 1974 in the Logan Utah LDS Temple. They made Caldwell their forever home, and were blessed with four children: Paige, Jake, Melissa, and Sammi Jo.
Patti's four children live in the Treasure Valley with their families and learned from her example of charity and how to love one another. Her life's joy was creating memories with her family and serving everyone she met.
Patti was a lifelong member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Her testimony of her Savior, Jesus Christ, was shown through her service in the Primary and Young Women organizations.
Patti is survived by her husband, Michael Nancolas; her daughter, Paige (Kent) Shurtleff of Nampa; her son Jake (Kim) Nancolas of Caldwell; her daughter Melissa (Jacob) Chandler of Caldwell; and her daughter Sammi Jo (Brad) Burbank of Caldwell. Her legacy includes her 12 grandchildren whom she adored. She is also survived by her brothers Bob (Carol) Miles of Marsing, and Tom (Jil) Miles of Meridian. Patti was preceded in death by her parents Roy and Ermadean Miles; and her father-in-law and mother-in-law, Mike and Joyce Nancolas.
The family would like to express their gratitude to Dr. Pulver, Holly Swenson P.A., and the nurses at Saint Alphonsus Cancer Center who became a special part of Patti's life; and to those at Harrison's Hope Hospice, Total Body Wellness, as well as the staff at West Valley Medical Center for the care and grace shown to their wife and mother.
Funeral services will be held at 1:00 p.m. Friday, April 21 at the Caldwell LDS Stake Center, 3015 S. Kimball Ave., Caldwell.
