Nancy worked at Cenex, Super Value and the Fairview School over the years. She eventually found her calling and love of cooking for others at the Waterhole #3 where she was employed until she was no longer able to work.

Nancy was a hard worker and gave her all into everything she did. She was soft-spoken, kindhearted and a friend to everyone. She enjoyed the simple things in life such as a good book and a hot bath. Nancy also enjoyed going on camping trips to the Bighorn Mountains with Jim every chance they got. She loved spending quality time with her grandchildren but had a special bond with Praxton for their shared love for all things WWE.
