Bird, Nancy Roberta

Nancy Roberta Bird, 78, Green Bay, passed away at a local hospital on Sunday, January 20, 2013. Nancy was born in Wisconsin Rapids on April 8, 1934, and was the daughter of the late Edgar and Olga Bird.

Nancy graduated from high school in Wisconsin Rapids. After graduating from UW-Stevens Point, she taught kindergarten at Fort Howard, Lincoln, Jackson and Martin Schools in Green Bay. She had many loyal friends among the Green Bay teachers and her former students have many fond memories of her. An avid Packer fan, Nancy was proud to have had one of Bart Starr's children in her class.

Those who knew Nancy, all describe her as a very social person who knew how to enjoy life. Her home reflected that enjoyment as it was always well decorated for every season and holiday. Nancy also had the ability to write and her friends have poems and kind words written on greeting cards, with which to remember her.

Nancy is survived by two nephews, Geoffrey (Amy) Hutter, Phoenix, AZ, and their children, Kathryn and Madison; and Kurt (Maryanne) Hutter, Belleville, WI, and their daughter, Jessica; one niece, Kimberly (John) Hutter Whitmyer, Phoenix, AZ, and their children Brett and Nathan; three cousins, Susan Gilkey Johnson, Manahawkin, NJ; George R. Gilkey, Madison, WI; and Madge A. Gilkey, Green Bay.

Nancy was preceded in death by her parents and one sister, Janet Marie Hutter.

A celebration of Nancy's life will be held at a later date. The family would like to thank Nancy's friends who cared for her during the past several years.
