She and Paul purchased and operated Humble Rest Lodge in the Poconos of PA for many years. After their retirement she and Paul moved to The Villages, FL where they enjoyed an active lifestyle with friends.

Nancy’s faith was very important to her. She had been very active in the service of many church ministries over the years. Nancy was a member of New Covenant United Methodist Church. She was very compassionate and had a generous caring heart. Nancy loved to laugh and never took herself too seriously by always being able to laugh at herself first. Nancy had a keen eye for floral design and loved to create decorative wreaths and dried florals. She had lots of fun with friends as they traveled to craft shows to sell their wares.

Brownsville, PA held a very special place in Nancy’s heart as she recalled wonderful memories of her idyllic childhood, surrounded by a supportive and loving family.
