Nancy had worked at the Country Kitchen in Colchester,  General Electric in Florida, Western Illinois University, and  Sodexo at Western Illinois University.  She loved fishing, dancing, cooking, flowers, ice cream, sewing, painting, playing card, doing puzzles, getting a pepsi with peanuts and taking a drive in the country, sitting on her porch with a fresh cup of coffee and enjoying listening to the birds and watching the animals in the early mourning or late evening.  Her greatest joys came from her children.  Spending time with them listening to Mark and Larry play music or laughing with the whole family.  It didn’t matter to Nancy what they were doing as long as she had her family at her side.
