Tom and Nancy were married Sept. 4, 1965, which set them off on their lifelong adventure together. The two attended many historic concerts and events, enjoyed traveling, and hiking. Nancy’s dreams were realized with her beautiful home and family at the base of Rabbit Ears Pass. Nancy was passionate about books, art, and the natural world. Her eye for beauty and sense of humor were most notably seen in her selection of gifts and cards at Lyon Drug, where she was the heart and soul of that business for 35 years.
Nancy had a unique and wonderful way with children. When Nancy was with children, especially her grandchildren, her natural joy and vitality emerged. Being with children allowed Nancy to laugh and express her playful nature. For those who knew Nancy, you surely remember how much she loved to laugh.
