Over the years, Nancy was engaged with many other organizations including the Native Daughters of Cooperstown. She was also a Cub Scout Den Mother. In her early years as a member of the Cooperstown Fire Department Auxiliary, she was often up in the middle of the night boiling big pots of water to make coffee for Dunnie and the rest of the volunteer firemen.
Nancy was the strength that held family together. In her roles as daughter, wife, mother, sister, cousin, aunt, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend, Nancy would always strive to create bonds between people. Even in later years Nancy traveled to visit her children, her siblings, her cousins and friends. Known as “Mom” to many of her children’s friends, she was a woman who worked to maintain meaningful contacts between people, in her family, her church and her community.
A celebration of life service will be held at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 11, at the First Baptist Church in Cooperstown, with a reception following in the Baptist Fellowship Hall.
Nancy suggested in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the First Baptist Church for property development projects, the Village Library for use in the children’s program, or another charity of your choice.
Arrangements are under the supervision of Tillapaugh Funeral Service, Cooperstown.
