Mrs. Nancy spent many years of her earlier life in a local credit office as the manager and owner. Many friendships were kindled among the contacts she made while in this profession. At one point in her life she did a lot of crochet work as a hobby. She loved family dearly and in recent years she had three other loves: Pepsi, watching TV, and her canine “Sammy”. Her love and quick wit will be missed by many who know her.
