Nancy was a native of Ocala, Florida where she spent many years of her childhood before moving to the Orlando area in 1975. She was a proud daycare owner for over 40 years. Nancy always enjoyed singing and playing guitar. She had a passion for music in her younger years. As her family grew, she never missed an opportunity to spend time with each of them. She was always involved in beach trips, sports games, family dinners, and shopping sprees with her daughter. She was a spontaneous woman who was always looking for new adventures.
