Nancy passed away, unexpectedly, Wednesday, August 23, 2023 at Borgess Hospital in Kalamazoo.
She was born April 16, 1957 in Allegan, MI, to Fred and Joan (Stegeman) Volker. Nancy was a 1975 Otsego High School graduate. She had worked for National City/PNC Bank in Oshtemo for over 20 years and then for JD Byrider in Kalamazoo for over 10 years.
Nancy was a single mother who raised her only son for many years on her own. He was the absolute pride and joy of her life. She was happiest when surrounded by her family, especially her grandchildren.
Nancy enjoyed decorating her home absolutely beautifully, was a great cook and baker, loved to travel and thoroughly enjoyed life. She will be remembered lovingly by her family and friends for her generous heart and kindness to strangers. If you were blessed to have Nancy as a friend you knew she was always happy to be the Thelma to your Louise.
Surviving are her son, Ryan (Lydia) Oberlin; her grandchildren, Madison Rutledge, Grayson Oberlin and Everly Oberlin; her siblings, Jeff (Ellen) Volker of South Carolina and Sarah (Tom) Clemens of Allegan; several nieces and nephews and her sister-in-law, Jeannie Volker.
She was preceded in death by her parents and her niece, Lorie Volker.
According to her wishes cremation has taken place.
A celebration of Nancy’s life will be announced at a later time.
Contributions in memory of Nancy may be made to her family for expenses.
