Nancy B. Strother
After the most courageous, grace-filled battle with cancer, Nancy made her way through heaven’s gates on Friday, October 6, 2017.
Of all her accomplishments in life, being a wife and momma were her greatest joy. A very close second was her cherished relationships with family and friends too numerous to count. Nan’s definition of family included not only her immediate family members but also an army of friends who surrounded her throughout her life. She touched so many and will be deeply missed by all. We were so blessed by her presence and love.
There are no words to thank all the compassionate caregivers that walked alongside us on the journey - Dr. Deming and his team from Mercy Radiation Oncology, Dr. Bender and his team from the University of Iowa, Dr. Morton and his team from MOHA, the Mercy 8 South team, and the team from Kavanagh House. We will be forever grateful.
Jim, Luke, and Abbie will welcome your hugs at Westover Funeral Home, 6337 Hickman Road, Des Moines, IA 50322, from 5 to 7 PM on Wednesday, Oct. 11, 2017. If the Spirit moves you, we would greatly appreciate you bringing along a favorite picture or short story as we remember our precious Nan together. A celebration of her life will be held at Lutheran Church of Hope - Ankeny, 520 N.W. 36th St., Ankeny, IA 50023, 3 PM, Thursday, Oct. 12, 2017. Memorials may be directed to the family and will be shared among the charities nearest to Nancy’s heart.
