Nancy was born in 1942 in Brainerd. She was the third of four children in a family who were very involved in the Church of the Nazarene. She began teaching Sunday School in her high school years and went on to receive an education degree from Northwest Nazarene College. Nancy began her teaching career in the Minneapolis public schools, during which time she met Lauren through friends. They were married and moved to the farm near Pine City, where Nancy soon acclimated to country life. Later on, she resumed her career at the Pine City Cooperative Nursery School, where she taught for 16 years. Nancy was active in her church, taking on many roles. She was involved in 4-H as an adult leader, and supported local performing arts with her sewing and crafts. Nancy and Lauren moved to Alexandria in 2006. She described her hobbies as flying kites, reading, doing jigsaw puzzles, and spending time with family and friends. Wherever she was, Nancy shared her deep faith through her hospitality and inviting personality.
Nancy was preceded in death by her parents, Lyle and Ellen (Burkart) Davis, and brother, Larry Davis.
