She was a 1966 graduate of Belpre High School. Early on Nancy worked as a unit secretary at Camden-Clark Memorial Hospital and St. Joseph’s Hospital, later she co-owned Pennsboro Adult Care Home and worked through RCIFS and touched many lives through her unselfish giving over the years since trusting the Lord as her personal savior on Aug. 26, 1980. Through the soul-winning efforts of Pastors Eddy Bellville and Dwight Davis, she monitored at the Christian School, taught Sunday School, sang in the choirs and set a fine example for others, and she had affiliations and membership with Valley Bible Center, Bible Way Baptist, Hope Freewill Baptist and Southside Baptist Church, each dependent on where she resided. She joined the Harrisville Moose Club in 2012.
