Nancy was caring, loving, kind and compassionate.  She loved spending time with her family and devoted her life as a homemaker.  One of her greatest loves in life were babies.  She was so thrilled at the birth of each grandchild and the time she spent snuggling them.  They still remember her singing "I Love You a Bushel and a Peck" to each of them.  She was an active member of the LDS church and served in many capacities and callings.

Survived by husband Pete, children, Jeff (Teri), Steve (April), Heidi (Gary) Marshall, Kris Nelson(Glen Williams), 14 grandchildren, 7 great-grandchildren and sister Lorraine (Jerry) Timmerman.  Preceded in death by her father and mother.
