Nancy was a 1954 graduate from Ball State University in Indiana
where she met her husband. She was a loyal Air Force wife for 25
years who managed many homes including homes in Europe and
Hawaii. After all the military moves she relished staying in one place to
be close to her children and grandchildren.
Retirement years were a joy playing golf with friends as members of
Sunset Whitney CC and going RV camping and fishing. Most of all
she loved being a wife, mother and grandmother.
