She was born September 22, 1948 in Martin, SD to Howard and Elaine Phipps. As a young girl she lived with her family in Clinton NE, where she began her education. The family moved to Marin, in 1957, where Nancy finished her education.

Nancy had many jobs throughout her lifetime, but her passion was working with children, both as a kindergarten aide, and a daycare provider. She was known as Grandma Nancy to many.

Grandma Nancy had a great love for her grandchildren: Brian, Jalisa, Katrina, Shayla (Charg), Jacy, Shiann, Karissa Jesse, Tee, Dylan, Royce, Ty, and Bryer, along with her 8 great grandkids.

Survivors include her husband Clarence, children Christy Finney (Jon), Platte, SD, Terri Gregg (Jon), Ami Allen, Cody Allen (Stacy), all from Martin, SD, 13 grandchildren, 8 great-grandchildren, three sisters Bernadine Daily (Ron), Martin, SD Patricia Maciejewski (Leland) Hot Springs and Linda Hicks (Raymond), Rapid City, SD.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Howard and Elaine Phipps, two infant sisters, Jacueline and Debra, her nieces Lea-Ann, Lori, Kayla Rae, and Denise, and a son-in-law Marcus Kamerzell.

The family suggest memorials to the Bennett County Senior Center and donations may be sent in care of Bennett County Funeral Service, PO Box 65 Martin, SD 57551.
