Our Savior Jesus Christ has destroyed death and brought life and immortality to light through the Gospel. Let us remember with thanksgiving what God has done through His servant Nancy.
Nancy Adele Stoltzman was given life by her creator and was born on July 15, 1952, the child of Louis and Nancy Nau. On August 10, 1952, she received the gift of Holy Baptism and became a child of God. On May 29, 1966, she publicly confessed her faith and was confirmed. She received the precious gift of the Lord’s life-giving body and blood. On December 29, 1979, she received the gift of a beloved companion in her spouse, Monte. She was blessed with the gift of children, Sabrina Anne and Jacob Andrew. God blessed Nancy’s life with many special people as she served God in her vocations at home, church, work, and in the community. Finally, on May 25, 2019, God blessed Nancy with a holy death and took her home to rest in the arms of Jesus to await the resurrection of the dead.
The Lord gives and the Lord takes away; blessed be the name of the Lord. We give thanks to God our Father through Jesus Christ, our Lord, for our sister Nancy.
