It is with great sadness that after a brief illness and surrounded by family and loved ones our beloved Nancy left us to be with the Lord
She was born in Fort Frances, the daughter of Alice and Roy Tinkess and grand daughter of Norrie and Mabel Godin.
She quit school early and began waitressing at the New Lunch cafe and from there and from there almost every restaurant in town. She was so loved by her many regular customers that some would move with her.that was how she met her husband Bill.
They would be together for thirty seven years. They travelled when they could and her favourite place was the Black Hills of South Dakota. She and son Dan travelled to the west coast to make some memories. They were like two peas in a pod when they were together and it was wonderful to here her share with everyone. In her final years she loved being on their houseboat watching God's beauty in all she saw around her, especially sunrises and sunsets.
She joined Calvary Baptist Church in 2016 and was baptized July 15 2019 she deeply loved and was loved by her wonderful church family.
She was predeceased by her parents and grandparents,brother Bob and young son Louis.
