Prior to retiring, Nancy was employed with Holiday Inn at Tanglewood, where she spent over 35 years of her life working in numerous capacities and building lasting friendships.
Above all, Nancy will be remembered as a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and friend to all that knew her.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brother, Cecil Bolt.
