Nancy graduated from Neenah High School in 1955, and she went on to work at Kimberly Dental for many years. On September 16, 1961, Nancy married Tom Albers, and they spent 52 years together.
Family was the most important thing to Nancy, and she truly enjoyed attending all of her children and grandchildren's activities and sporting events. She was a very avid Brewer, Packer, and Badger fan. Nancy loved going on fishing trips to Northern Wisconsin and Minnesota with her family, and she also enjoyed visiting friends in Lake Tahoe. She liked to spend time reading, building puzzles, and embroidering. Nancy was a loving wife, mother, and friend who will be dearly missed.
