She is predeceased by her parents Brayton and Helen, her sons Eugene Ray and Jeffrey, her brothers Erwin “John”, Gordon, and Harold Hamilton, and her longtime companion Edward Sudol.
Nancy’s family would like to express their heartfelt appreciation to the family and staff at Legacy K for the the care and compassion that was provided to Nancy at her home in the past year.
