Harold, I was so sad to hear that Nancy had passed away. I always enjoyed talking to the two of you at the mall or Walmart when my dad and I would run into. You were a wonderful couple and I know the many happy memories you have will get you through this terrible time.

So sorry for your loss and prayers are coming your way. I kind of grew up with the Scheppers family and have fond memories of all. Marian, you worked with the Mom at the Secretary of State for many years and Mom had fond memories. It's hard to lose someone in the family, just know you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Nancy was a devoted wife to her husband Harold. She took excellent care of him after he was diagnosed with cancer until her health deteriorated. She loved her children and grandchildren. She did a lot of volunteer work. I will miss her and I hated to see her go. She is no longer suffering and she was welcome at the gates of Heaven. She will live in our hearts, until we all will meet again. God bless her and her loved ones. Love Marian and Bernie.
