Music brought Nan great joy and was a driving force in her life. In her later years, she sang in several choirs and chorales, and played hand bells at Bethany UMC where she attended.
Boxer dogs were a great part of Nan’s life for over 40 years, almost always having had at least one and more often several in her home, breeding and raising them, and showing many to championship in AKC shows.
Nan was always active and involved in the lives of her high school sorority sisters, of whom were very dear lifelong friends. Most of all, Nan loved the company of family and friends, enjoying their visits immensely. She was an avid bridge player and loved to play card games of every sort with her family and friends.
