I got to know Nancy after she moved to Cherry Street in Colfax. She was nice to go over and visit with my mom, Jean Neal. It was an example of her loving personality. Love to her family. I know she will be missed.
Nancy, may the Peace of Christ be with you for eternity.

Our thoughts and prayers from Arizona go out to Jim and all families and friends of Nancy. We have all lost a mom, sister, grandmother, aunt, cousin, school mate, co-worker, friend, and much loved one. Nancy never met a stranger and was kind to everyone! We met through her life partner, Jim. Personally, I felt a sister connection with Nancy. We loved all the same activities, dancing, singing karaoke, yard sales, and sharing our lives with one another. What I loved most about Nancy was she was a family person. She loved her family, bringing them together creating great memories for a lifetime, fishing, boating, camping, etc. I'm so happy I could thank her in a text for all the great memories we shared together in Iowa and Arizona. She understood and responded with love. I know her pets Chi Chi and Troll are suffering in her absence. I know Jim never in his wildest dreams thought he would lose the love of his life of 25 years. Neither did any of us. My heart will never be the same here on earth but I know where Nancy lives on and we will meet again! May God comfort those who are suffering right now and flood their hearts and minds with all the great fun loving memories this beautiful soul shared with us on earth! RIP Nancy
