Nancy K. Bumb Obituary
April 28, 1931 - September 4, 2017 Nancy Kim Bumb, loving mother, devoted grandmother and great-grandmother and dear friend to many, passed away peacefully on September 4 in Arcadia, CA. A longtime resident of the Pasadena area, Nancy was born in Hastings, Nebraska, on April 28, 1931 to Myron and Forrest Spaulding. Nancy's sister, Miriam, arrived two years later, and the two enjoyed a close relationship. In 1936, the family moved to San Bernardino. There, Nancy began the first of many lifelong friendships, and met her future husband, Frank Bumb, Jr. The couple married following Frank's graduation from Caltech. Nancy treasured her loving friends in her Caltech extended family and their many years of fellowship. Nancy served in many organizations including PTA, Girl Scouts, and First United Methodist Church Pasadena. But most importantly, she ensured that the Bumb home was a sanctuary for her family, and welcoming to all. Her great joys included her children and their families, travel, weekly bridge groups, and church family. Nancy will be greatly missed by her family, neighbors, friends and caregivers. She will be remembered for her brilliant smile, positive outlook, and infectious laugh. Nancy is survived by her sister, Miriam McKenzie of Palm Desert (formerly El Cajon), CA; son Stephen and wife Arlene Bumb of Huntington Beach, CA, daughters Luanne Mitchell of Temecula, CA, and Janice and husband Michael Fluchere of San Clemente, CA.; grandsons Andrew, Kyle, Kevin, Jeffrey and Eric, her great-grandchildren Wyatt, Calvin, Rhett, Amy and Alan, and loving great-nieces and nephews. A memorial service will be held at First United Methodist Church Pasadena, 500 E. Colorado Blvd., Pasadena, CA, on Saturday, October 14 at 11AM. In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial donations be made to First United Methodist Church Pasadena.
