Nancy Stump
Jacksonville - It is with great joy and gladness that we announce that Nancy (Weygandt, Tate) Stump was recently accepted into Heaven at the invitation of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
On Friday, October 22nd, 2021, she earned her wings and will join both of her parents, her older brother, her husbands, and her youngest son who graduated from this life before her.
Nancy is the latest in a long line of believers to enter Heaven and the joy at her ascension tempers the feelings of loss and grief experienced by her remaining sister, children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and Christian brothers and sisters.
While Nancy didn't "earn" her position into Heaven (it was a free gift paid for by the blood of our Christ), her earthly experiences have been a blessing and inspiration to many. During her 80 years on this earth, she traversed the country inspiring others through acts of service and love. Most recently (ok-for over 30 years) Nancy was blessed to serve in ministry at numerous churches in the greater Jacksonville, IL area. Her humble, graceful, and compassionate desire to instill a sense of cooperation instead of competition between groups of believers made her easy to love and welcomed everywhere.
While Nancy will be missed by many, we have no doubt that she will continue to serve the Lord as the fruits of her labor become evident as the seeds she planted on Christ's behalf grow in each of us.
A celebration of life is scheduled for Sunday, October 31st, 2021, at 1:00 PM at the Lynnville Christian Church–Disciples of Christ (LCC). The service will also be live streamed on the LCC Facebook page for those that would like to follow along from home. Immediately following the celebration, family and friends will join the church body in the annual Gleaning of the fields at Gregory farms in Lynnville. Produce collected during the gleaning will be donated to a local food bank.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Nancy's name to the Jacksonville Police Citizen's Academy Alumni Association or the Lynnville Christian Church. The Buchanan & Cody Funeral Home in Jacksonville is assisting the family. Condolences may be left at

It was such an uplifting honor to serve with Nancy on several CCIW committees over the past 30 years. I held such deep respect for her compassion and thoughtfulness, not to mention the encouraging words she shared as a mentor. She will be missed.

We were so sorry to hear about Nancy's passing. She was so nice and her and Ambrose preached at the First Christian Church in Rushville, where we attend. They were both wonderful. You are all in our thoughts and Prayers.

Nancy was a wonderful lady. I had the pleasure of knowing her at Barton Stone where I worked and then later she married my husband and I. She will be greatly missed, but she is with family in heaven who left this earth before her. Prayers to the family.

We worked many times with Nancy on Fund Raisers for LCC and St. John's Lutheran Church, Bluff Springs. She was always inspiring and a hard-working lady.
