She also served as a Cub Scout den mother.Nancy loved kids and her yard was often full of the neighborhood kids playing and enjoying the cookies and lemonade that Nancy always had for them. The quintessential extrovert, Nancy never met a stranger and was always there for anyone in need of a kind word or a supportive hug. And while she enjoyed playing golf, tennis and bridge with friends her favorite activity by far was dancing. Nancy's work life also reflected her love for people.

Beautiful Nancy will be missed.
Nancy is going to be missed by many. We used to talk two or three times a week. Those talks have been missed by me terribly. Growing up together we had a lot of good memories and so much fun. I loved my dear friend very much and miss our talks and the laughing we always shared. My condolences go out to her family.
Nancy had an outstanding and fun personality! She will be missed. Our prayers are with you all.
Ginger:Our hearts are broken for you for the loss of your Mom. She was an amazing woman! She never met a stranger and was loved by so many. She will be missed by all who knew her.May God wrap His loving arms around you and your family more than ever during this time. Our prayers are with you all.In Christian Love,Joanie and Bob Younger
Ginger, Sending my prayers to you and all your family. I loved your mother when we were children in Lonoke. When I cleaned out boxes and cabinets this last year, I found a cute little Hallmark book she had given to me (probably 50! years ago) and it brought back great memories. I just wanted you to know how long and how fondly your mom lived in people’s memories.
So many will know of the great loss of this wonderful person...Nancy joins her wonderful kin...in God HeaveBJS
Nancy had the gift of laughter and lifted our spirits. I have so many happy memories of her. Sympathy and admiration for Ginger.
Mrs Nancy was one of those people that touched many. She was such a fun, spunky lady. I never tired of her story’s and took every piece of advice she gave to heart. She will be so missed. I know she’s up in heaven dancing in the streets of gold and making everyone smile.
So sorry for your loss she was a fun loving person>
Prayers for the Jeffery and Myers family. I have fond memories of Mrs Jeffery and family when Lonoke was their home.
