Nancy was an avid reader and was known for her baking skills and writing abilities. She loved being involved in everything around her. She took on the role of maintaining connections with a very large extended family and thoroughly enjoyed her roles as big sister, mother, grandmother, and aunt. She was an engaged member of the Emlenton community and enjoyed participating in efforts to promote interest in the history of the area. She loved nothing more than running into a friendly face and having a long conversation.

Nancy is survived by her children, Ann Conner and her husband, Sean; Catherine Piekos and her husband, Edward; and Jean Ramsey and her husband, Gary Huang; her grandchildren, Kimberlee Peña and her husband, Mario; Avery Piekos, Asher Piekos, and Amelia Huang; a sister, Marilyn England, and numerous nieces, nephews, great nieces and great-nephews.
