Not to say that Nancy was an opinionated individual, but when she talked about "arrangements" she always said that she did not want sadness but wanted a celebration in the spirit of her Scotch-Irish heritage where people will raise a glass in her honor while telling their most embarrassing story about her. Please join us where you will be able to fill a glass and toast a life well-lived on Saturday October 23, 2021 at Natchez Trace Funeral Home from the hours of 2:00 pm until 4:00 pm.
