Nancy was born in Minnesota, on the 10th of November, 1954 to Mary Ann “Mickey” and Orlo Olson. She married Michael, the love of her life at the young age of 19, moved to California and never looked back. Together they established Zee Signs which continues to prosper.  They raised three amazing sons of which she was very proud: Jonathan (Marisa) Zarracina, Dustin (Summer) Zarracina and Ryan Zarracina.  The apples of her eye were her two grandchildren, Lennon Love and Sudden Joy.  She is also survived by her sisters:  Lynnette (Doug) Nordberg, Lynnae (Neil) Karsten and Debra (Larry) Clausnitzer and many adoring nieces and nephews.

Nancy entered the kingdom of heaven peacefully on the 24th  of January, 2019 with her husband by her side.

    Dear Michael, Jonathan, Dustin, and Ryan,
    I am so, so sorry to hear about the sudden loss of Nancy – your beloved wife and mother. I was not a close friend of hers, however, did meet her on occasion as my girls Nina, Christina and Angela Pisano went to the same schools as the boys. Then a few times I was asked to be a substitute for her Bunco group. In fact, I remember enjoying chatting with her at Pat Adams house this past year. What a lovely lady inside and out with such a huge heart and radiant smile.

    My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

    My sincere condolences,
    Denise Dorin

    Initially, Nancy was my friend from work but she became my wife’s best friend. Together they became young mothers and helped each other along that blessed road. They learned, taught and grew and were inseparable. Our families became so intertwined – too numerous to count the visits, parties, dart nights, casinos, taco Tuesdays and outings we shared. I will remember her passions for/of baking (cupcakes, brownies, fudge and no-bakes), jewelry, gemology, her house, gaming, horses (betting), Mike, her boys and those grandkids. Her eyes just twinkled at the thought and sight of them. But most of all, I will remember all those looks, smiles, glares, laughs that a 42 year friendship yields. She is loved and missed but will never be forgotten. Love you girl!!
