She lived a long, wonderful life experiencing the joys of family, friends, square dancing and lots of camping. She was blessed to have been able to travel across the country many times with Jim in their many different types of RV’s. Most of all she was a loving and caring wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Nancy will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
