Nancy loved taking care of her flower gardens. She would tend to the vegetable garden with care to bring in a full harvest. She was very good with canning vegetables and fruits, making jams and preserves, and also enjoyed creating handmade rugs. But most of all, Nancy loved being a good wife and mothering her children!

    So very sorry to hear of your very deep and personal loss. Aunt Nancy was always so good to me through the years! Loved those times at Green Acres/Emerson Bay at Okoboji!! May God heal the sorrow you feel now and leave you with special memories to treasure for the future.
