Nancy was born on July 12, 1936 in Coffeeville, Kansas, the youngest of 4 children. The Fardy family moved to Whitewater, Wisconsin when Nancy was a young girl.

Nancy was an active parishioner at Holy Apostles Church and member of the Choir. Nancy was also a member of the Shamrock Club of Milwaukee and the Choir.

Nancy was also a committed volunteer to many other organizations, including the Ronald McDonald House, Waukesha Memorial Hospital, and the New Berlin Library.

Nancy was fun, loving, adventurous, loyal, kind, and incredibly generous. Nancy was all about Wisconsin sports—a very loyal and vocal Green Bay Packers and Milwaukee Brewers fan. She loved to travel—around the country, as well as international. Her travel companions included family, friends, and elder hostel groups. Nancy was all about family—such a presence at every holiday, party, and family gathering. Nancy always took the time with friends, her brother and sisters, and her many nieces and nephews. She will be missed by all.
