The family moved to Garden Grove in 1949 in a home built by her father as a labor of love on the weekends.

In 1978, Nancy and Pat moved to Carson City and a few years later purchased their home in Minden.

Nancy worked in the Human Resources Dept. at Carson Tahoe Medical Center and retired after 25 wonderful years.

Nancy and Pat loved to ski during the winters and Nancy loved watching Pat race his motorcycle at tracks throughout the area.

Nancy’s home had a fantastic collection of 100’s of Teddy Bears of all kinds. Her collection was always fun to see because she constantly added new pieces.

Nancy was preceded in death by her loving husband in 2015. She is survived by her brother. Richard Brown, her nieces, Hadi Brown, Nicholas Brown, Jenavieve Brown, and her grand-nieces, Charlotte Brown and Eleanor Brown.
