Nancy had resided in the Naples area since 2002. Originally from Delphos, she graduated from Jefferson High School. Before settling in Naples, Nancy and her family lived in several places, including Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Indiana and Tennessee.
During her life, Nancy was a dedicated wife and mother and also worked as an administrative assistant for a CPA firm and for Ford Motor Company. She was an avid bowler in her earlier years, was passionate about knitting, loved to play cards and read constantly. First and foremost in her life was the well-being of her husband and family. A wonderful cook, Nancy’s recipes will continue to bring love into her children’s and their children’s homes for generations to come. Nancy was a very selfless person; others always came first. Your family will miss your love and guidance dear; we ask that you look down on us from above.
