She graduated from Stoughton High School in 1971. Nancy worked at Skaalen Home in Stoughton for over 30 years. During much of this time she also worked as a bartender at Barber’s. She was a hard worker who loved to work, and missed work when she was no longer able to do it. She liked to cook and bake, and her lasagna and chocolate cake will be missed. Nancy also enjoyed flowers, embroidery, her cats and dogs, the Packers and visiting the casino. To her nieces, nephew, great nieces and great nephews, she was ‘Auntie’, and she loved spending time with them.
Together with her significant other and soul-mate, Dennis Williams, Nancy enjoyed time in Soldier’s Grove fishing, gardening, and feeding birds and squirrels. Nancy was well loved.
