Nancy was employed at Packard Electric for 33 years before her retirement in 1998. After retiring, she loved spending time with her grandsons. She enjoyed being around them because they always made her laugh. She was always willing to help and could be counted on to watch her beloved grandsons whenever needed.

When not caring for her family, Nancy could often be found gardening and / or planting her beloved flowers.
