Nancy was a humble, sweet, caring person. She also had a great sense of humor, and loved to tease. She served God faithfully for so many years at First Baptist in Calumet, alongside her husband, Pastor Nolen. One memory of her that really touched my heart, was when she agreed to finish a crocheted doll blanket for my daughters. My mother, Esther Coltman, who knew she was going to pass away soon, had asked Nancy to finish it for her, and Nancy did. It was so sweet of her to do that, and I appreciated it so much. Everyone who knew Nancy was very blessed. We will miss her and will never forget her, but we know that she is now with her Savior, free from pain, and full of joy.
