Nancy always had a caring, quiet nature.  She enjoyed gardening, bird watching, and putting puzzles together. Her greatest loves though were her husband Ron, her children, and her grandchildren. She held her Catholic faith closely, and it never waivered despite her illness; always knowing that God gives eternal life to those who follow Him.
