She worked as a cosmetologist in her home for twenty years. She then worked at Iowa State in dining services for ten years.

Nancy is survived by the love of her life, Alan of Madrid; brothers, Mike Rood, Jerry and Tim Pepper; son, Wayne (Angie) Anderson; daughter, Kelly (Steve) Curvin; and six grandchildren, Bryce and Brendan Anderson, Eric Price, Abra, Olivia, and Brady Curvin, and many McVicker-Dutton beloved family members.
