ANSONIA - Our dearest mother, Nancy Jane Sink, went home to be with her Lord and Savior November 11, 2021. Nancy was born in Ansonia, Ohio, February 1, 1932, daughter of Theodore and Nellie (Riegle) Tharp. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her loving husband, Dale Leroy Sink, daughter Christine (Sink) Henderson, two sisters, Phyllis Fansler and Barbara Rismiller, and brother Theodore Tharp. Nancy is survived by sister Ann Perry, 6 children- Vicki Gebhart, Debra (Tony) Black, Patty (Ben) Browning, Jeffrey Dale Sink, Barbara (Jim) Fishinger, and Linda (Kelly) Duckett, 14 grandchildren- Lisa Gillespie, Gary (Shelly) Gillespie, Heather (Don) Batty, Emily (Travis) Bennett, Lukas Browning, Samuel Browning, Clayton Browning, Jacob Henderson, Laura (Bryan) Elle, Zachary Fishinger, Jonny (Tori) Fishinger, Caleb Fishinger, Dylan (Emily) Peck, Clint (fiancee Aleigha) Duckett, 11 great grandchildren, and a host of nephews, nieces, and friends.
Nancy grew up in Ansonia, Ohio, then moved to Greenville, Ohio, where she and Dale spent their lives raising their family. While nurturing 7 children, she also worked a variety of jobs, including Jamesway. Nancy loved the Lord, worshipping at several local churches, most recently Evangelical United Methodist, where she enjoyed participating in the women's ministry. Nancy also enjoyed bowling, playing cards and games, and scrapbooking. Nancy committed her lifetime to making a loving home for her family. Her legacy will live on through all of the many lives she touched with her sweet and gentle soul.
We know that she is in a better place now in the arms of Jesus, where she is physically and mentally whole. We will miss her deeply but she will remain in our hearts forever.
