Nancy always lived in the moment and on her own terms. She Loved the mountains and her farm animals, especially the horses, goats and burros. The only thing she loved more were her sons. She gave freely and unconditionally to those who became her friends. She loved fighting vigorously for what she felt was right and always advocated for the underdogs in her community. Nancy was always interested in national politics and very active in local politics. A cause she was most proud of was Vision 2020. She never complained and worked tirelessly on the things she believed in. Many people did not know her by her actual name but fondly remembered her as the “Fire Extinguisher Lady”, “Firewood Lady”, “Goat Lady” and “Poinsettia Lady”.
We are looking forward to Celebrating her life later in the Summer of 2023 in Fairplay, CO
