Nancy graduated from Carbon High School and the College of Eastern Utah. She enjoyed her job as a training coordinator at CCR&R at USU Eastern. Her greatest passion in life was spending time with her family. She loved being Yia Yia to her grandson Koda. Nancy was a devoted wife and mother who loved to open her heart and home to family and friends. It was a great privilege for any of those who had the opportunity to know and spend time with such a caring and patient soul.
