  1. Nancy was a very kind and friendly person. Her beautiful welcoming smile will be missed at our chapel door. She made everyone, whether they were long time residents or new folks, feel like they were “coming home” when they entered. Her light was a gift to us all.

    I loved coming into church and seeing Nancy smile and welcome me. As I came and went in preparation for the services and classes to follow, she’d always call me ‘breezy.’ I’ll miss hearing that moniker as I come and go. What a strong woman with a great light about her. She’ll be missed!

    We were very good friends for many years. We were neighbors in Hanson, Idaho. We have kept in touch all of these years. Nancy knew the Book of Mormon was true and later the family joined the church. Nancy loved her family so much and spent time with her Grandchildren after her retirement. She worked hard and loved serving her missions also. She had a warm and friendly spirit. She did Temple work for many of her ancestors who were probably there to greet her as she passed on as well as meeting with her son Jory , and parents.we will greatly miss her. The world is a better place because of her being here. We love you all. Barbara and Jack Allen
