Nancy was truly a wonderful woman. She loved her family and put all of them first, even before herself. She was always the first person to be there when one of us needed help. She especially loved spending time with the little ones in her life. She never missed any games and still enjoyed watching Gary play softball every Monday. She enjoyed parks and other festivities, to see joy on the kids’ faces, nothing would hold her back from enjoying life, she loved life. We are all going to miss her so very much.
Surviving is her daughter, Debra Allen; grandchildren, Miranda Schlitz, Thomas and Samantha Brothen, and Steven Allen; great-grandchildren, Gary and Mikayla Petersen, Cody Smith, Jacob and Zachary Brothen, Jordan and Mariah Zaionc, and Jocelyn Schlitz; great-great-grandson Ryker Petersen; her sister Dorothy Harper; and she will be greatly missed by her lifelong partner.
Nancy is proceeded in death by her parents, 7 brother and 2 sisters.
