Nancy entered this life on September 2, 1975, in Joplin, Missouri, one of two daughters born to the union of Phil Robert and Victoria Jean (Wiles) Northup.  She was raised in Joplin and was a 1993, graduate of Joplin High School.  She furthered her education by receiving her Bachelors Degree in Nursing.  She was currently employed by Freeman Hospital as a Registered Nurse.  During the Covid pandemic, Nancy traveled to New Jersey and Phoenix to work on the front lines. Nancy has resided the last twelve years in Carl Junction.  She enjoyed biking, fishing, camping, playing games, working on old cars with her Dad, helping with Gracie’s theater projects and spending countless hours with her family.  Nancy was a member of Harmony Heights Baptist Church. She loved the LORD and her church family and enjoyed driving the church van for all the Sunday school trips and conferences. Nancy’s greatest joy was her daughter Gracie and she enjoyed spending every free moment with her on their many spontaneous adventures together.

She was preceded in death by her grandparents, Harold and Anna Lucille Northup and Elvin and Betty Wiles.
