A Celebration of Life will be held October 30 at 1 p.m. at Moose Lodge in Imperial for Nancy Gaston, 80, who passed away Monday, September 13, 2021.

A lifelong valley resident, Nancy was born in Holtville and raised with her brother Jim and her sister MaryAnn. She graduated from Brawley Union High School in 1959. After High School she married Nick Luevano and they moved to Imperial to raise their children: Amy, Wendy and Tracy. She was very active in many community organizations including the Junior Women's League in her early years.

In later years, she married William Browning and became "Mom" to Veronica, Johnny and Julie.

She was blessed with 14 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren.

Throughout her entire life her greatest joy came from supporting all community events in Imperial and she was always willing to help anyone in need. Please join us for a celebration of life well lived.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Imperial FFA.
