All but the newest guild members will have fond memories of Nancy, who left us suddenly and unexpectedly on December 3, 2021.
Nancy was a talented and enthusiastic fiber artist, and loved weaving, spinning, and basket weaving. She was a gifted instructor, and especially loved teaching others how to make her original basket designs.
She also enjoyed demonstrating her skills in public, always with that infectious smile. Those demonstrations included a number of years at Cowtown, where she was joined by her husband Chris, who tended the fire under dyepots.
Nancy and Chris recently moved from Derby to Sedan in order to build her dream house in the country. That dream was fast becoming a reality, but tragically, she would not live to see its completion.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, January 15, 2022 at College Hill United Methodist Church in Wichita at 1:00 p.m. It will also be livestreamed.
Her family has generously selected the Wichita Weavers, Spinners & Dyers Guild for memorial donations; see her obituary for more information. Donations may also be made online through the “Support Fiber Arts in Wichita” link at left or below (please leave a note that it is a memorial for Nancy, and include your mailing address).
You left us too soon, Nancy, but we’ll see you on the other side.
