Nancy loved basketball (especially Lipscomb University and Indiana Hoosiers), attending as many of her grandchildren's events as she could, spending time with her family especially her grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Service to others was the motto of Nancy’s life. She spent over 40 years as a labor and delivery nurse, assisting with the delivery of thousands of babies. She trained many new graduate nurses in labor and delivery nursing. She also made many trips to Clinica Ezell in Guatemala to help with surgical postoperative care for the indigenous peoples in Guatemala. She encouraged the same attitude in her children and grandchildren.

There will be no public service. A private graveside service will be held at a later date.
