She always went far above and beyond to help those in the community with difficult circumstances. She was an esteemed and successful mediator and always advocated for what was right.

Nancy enjoyed music, playing the drums, muscle cars and road trips with her husband in their Corvette. She was an expert gardener and Disney aficionado.

She loved her time spent at the Amishview, sitting in her rocking chair watching the sunset, and time spent enjoying her garden.

Above all, Nancy loved spending time with her family, especially her beloved grandchildren.
