February 28, 1946 - May 31, 2021
Nancy Sizemore was born in Carterville, Illinois on February 28, 1946 with a destiny. She was to become to most devoted wife to Larry Sizemore. The two of them were truly soulmates, deciding on their first date to get married. She loved him dearly and he loved her without question. Two little girls would follow their marriage: Julie was first and Sandy came along a couple of years later and was the baby. There wasn't anything she wouldn't do for them. These two girls were blessed to have her as a homemaker for the first part of their lives. She was their Girl Scout Troop Leader, camp director at summer camp, and a room mother at their elementary school, among other things. When it was "ride your bike to school day" she loaded up the bikes and drove the girls to a spot close to school so they could participate since they lived out in the "country". That's just the kind of person she was. Whenever someone else needed something, she was there to help. The Sizemores moved from Carterville, Illinois on December 16, 1977 and landed in Flippin, Arkansas. The family of four left their relatives behind, but quickly there was new "family" in Rea Valley. Nancy made their house a home and anyone who stopped by was treated like family. There were always people stopping by the house to "shoot the breeze" as Larry would say. After the move to Arkansas, Nancy got a job at Flippin Public Schools as a Math Aide. She touched lots of lives in her school room and she kept mementos given to her by students. One of them was read yesterday and it contained sweet words from a student who has grown up and still calls Nancy their friend. She later took a job at Baxter Labs where she made many life-long friends, working there until she retired. Being retired allowed her more time to dote on her grandchildren: Brandon Sizemore, Jacob Sizemore, and Weston Villines. They knew she loved them and would do anything in her power to help them. Her saying posted on her refrigerator was, "Grandma's my name, spoiling's my game!" When Larry became ill with cancer, she rallied behind him. They traveled back and forth together to Mayo Clinic for about 4 years while he valiantly battled cancer. After Larry was gone, Nancy was happy to talk to anyone about him. She could sing his praises for days! Many people contributed words to describe Nancy and this is what was said; "Kind, generous, loving neighbor, wonderful friend, beautiful smile, the sweetest, Sister in Christ, a roll model for pure genuine kindness, care-taker, warm, thoughtful, best trick or treat house EVER", and so, so many more. Nancy left this world on May 31, 2021 leaving behind her two daughters, Julie Sizemore and Sandy Villines (Lewis Villines). Her grandsons, Brandon Sizemore, Jacob Sizemore, and Weston Villines. Two sisters: Carlene Spiller of North Carolina and Ruth Ann Bean of Carterville, Illinois. Two Sister in Laws, Gwen Sizemore and Tressa (Johnny) Mausey both of Carterville, Illinois, as well as several nieces, nephews, and cousins. She has now been reunited with Larry, her parents, Carl and Claudia Wynn, and many, many friends and family members who have gone onto Heaven before her. Arrangements are by Roller-Burns Funeral Home in Yellville, Arkansas.
