She moved from Patterson shortly after graduating, however, she never lost her ties to her family and friends and enjoyed visiting her hometown. She was an avid reader and enjoyed listening to music. Nancy most enjoyed her family as she was everyone’s favorite aunt. She is preceded in death by one brother: Kenneth Keathley; two sisters: Rowena Bear and Betsy Dearth.
