Before retiring Nancy worked as the head bookkeeper for the Sears & Roebuck store in downtown Louisville, where she met and fell in love with Lee Harvey.
After leaving Sears, Nancy focused all of her endeavors in family and community. She was a volunteer for more than twenty years at the Kentucky Center and five years at the Louisville Palace. She worked annually for the Kentucky State Fair, as Information “Know it All” and was a beloved worker at the Farm & Machinery Show for years. Nancy could always tell a person “Where to go and How to get there”. She volunteered for many years working as an Election official in her Clarksville precinct and held a lifetime membership with the Order of the Eastern Star, Salem Chapter 286.
Nancy was a gifted seamstress and taught herself to crochet, knit and embroider. Many who knew Nancy usually received a hand crafted item. She loved doing for others and always had a project going in the basement sewing room or in the basket by her chair.
