She was very compassionate. Her heart and home were always open to anyone or any of God's "critters". To Nancy, all were welcome. Nancy was very loving to her family. Her beautiful smile always lit up the room. She loved being with family, and sharing her love for animals with her children and grandchildren. Nancy enjoyed traveling and camping. She always had a love for horses, she enjoyed caring for them and riding most of her life.
