She was a planner and a schemer and showed her personality and love in big ways.

Nancy was sure to organize the details, provide the equipment and toys and, of course cook and bake with everyone’s favorites in mind. Nancy’s love for life and others was only matched by that of her husband, Ron, who shared equally in her plans, adventures and giving. Nancy frequently took advantage of everything Post Lake, Wisconsin, the Illinois River and Kentucky Lake had to offer, and her travels never lacked for imagination, with Florida, Hawaii and Cancun among her many destinations.

She was the force that brought family and friends together and made simple things like planting and carving pumpkins, setting off fireworks, and cutting down Christmas trees special and joyful.
