Nancy Thomas, 88 years young, passed away on Sunday, November 15, 2020.

Nancy was born March 8, 1932, in La Crosse, Wisconsin to Louise and Ervin Ebentier. She grew up in Holmen, Wisconsin and went on to attend The College of Saint Teresa where she graduated with an associate’s degree in nursing.

Nancy met Jack Thomas while working at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. They were married soon after in 1956 in Onalaska, Wisconsin. Jack’s military career took them to Whiteman Air Force Base where they started their family that grew to seven boys, and then, finally, to Malmstrom Air Force Base where Jack retired.

Nancy’s working life started as an LPN and ended as a nurse’s aide at the Columbus Hospital. You would often find her working in her yard gardening or shopping. She loved visiting, camping, bowling, and being the household referee for her seven boys. She had a special place in her heart for animals, especially dogs, except maybe not for the rabbits that would eat her flowers.
