Nancy will always be remembered as a loving wife and mother. She had the special gift of generosity and could light up any room she entered with her smile. She made every person feel special. Her competitiveness and determination were a joy to watch and became contagious to those around her.

Nancy treasured her time with the Mount Juliet Youth Sports for many years. She enjoyed football and was a great fan of the Tennessee Titans and Vanderbilt University.

In the past few years, Nancy volunteered her time at McKendree Manor, caring for and loving the residents there. The game room was always lively when she was there.

A memorial visitation will be held Sunday, April 11, 2021 from 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM. A celebration of life will follow from 2:00 PM to 2:45 PM.

Help Bring CF Patients a Better Tomorrow

Cystic fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States (70,000 worldwide). A defective gene and its protein product cause the body to produce unusually thick, sticky mucus that:

  • clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening lung infections
  • obstructs the pancreas and stops natural enzymes from helping the body break down and absorb food
