  1. We knew Nancy for many years. There are so many things that we remember about her. More than anything, we remember her big heart and kind nature, her beautiful smile and her fighting spirit. Nancy loved her family and she loved life. We always enjoyed seeing her at family reunions because she was interesting and fun to be around. Words cannot describe how much we miss her. To Cindy, Patty, Nancy’s grandchildren and her other family members, please know we share in your grief. Ken and Sharon Hurley

    Nancy will remain close in our hearts and forever filling our minds with fond memories. There just are not any bad ones. When I met Cindy’s mother and father I could see the kind of people her parents were and many of their high qualities reflected in her. All super great people of the “Heartland”. Nancy always made me feel welcome and we enjoyed laughing, playing cards, goofing around, being silly …..always fun and always there to comfort thru the tough times she helped us get thru. Being around nancy was a good de-stressor. I could ALWAYS trust in her confidentiality and willing to listen ear. she was a dear close friend and wise counsel. I miss her warmth, her smile, her kindness, her heart of gold. Nancy was usually with us for holidays and birthday and other family gatherings over the past 20 years since she moved to Southern California and for that we are grateful. Nancy prayed for us and all her family every night of her life. She and Jesus had a good thing going.
    Well, I know that sweet heart is shining brightly in heaven now……….I look forward to the great joy of meeting again someday in the great beyond!
    Until then………Nancy………..Shine on dear one!
