Nancy (Gochnauer) Stiles, 92, of Green Bay, beloved wife of the late Stuart L. Stiles, departed this life on Thursday, July 21, 2016 at Autumn's Promise surrounded by her family.

Nancy grew up in Green Bay, graduating from Green Bay East High School, and received her BA degree in Theater from Northwestern University. She married Stuart in 1945, and they settled in Milwaukee and later Elm Grove where they lived for over 30 years raising their family. Nancy continued her love of theater by performing in numerous plays at the Sunset Playhouse in Elm Grove. She starred as a beautiful leading lady in over 20 plays and was an active member of their Board of Directors.
