Nancy Virginia Wolfe
Nancy was born in Erie, Pennsylvania; moved to Nebraska in 1960 and became a daughter of the prairie. She passed away peacefully on Friday, June 26th with her two oldest sons present to hold her hands during her final journey.
She carried with her an immeasurable love of all living things- from flowering trees to the smallest of creatures. She possessed a fierce but hidden strength, yet was always loving and gentle to her very core. Of her sons, she always said to “Give them love… and wings!”, and taught us that the greatest gift we can give to each other is our time.
She reveled in delivering joy to others in the form of organ and guitar music, her distinctive voice, and her slight, gentle, manner as a decades-long volunteer for Bryan Hospital, Tabitha, and Madonna. She always had the perfect expression on-hand for any given moment. One that she often shared: “You are the best that you can be when you are doing something for someone else.”
Nancy is survived by her sister, Mary, and two nephews; four sons- Jeffrey of Keno, OR; John (Sue), James (Kari), Joseph (Michelle), all of Lincoln; and five grandchildren- Nolan, Clara, Ian, Eliana and Greyson.
At Nancy’s request, no services will be held; only a private family gathering. Memorials, in lieu of flowers, may be made on her behalf to Tabitha or the People’s City Mission. Condolences online at aspenaftercare.com.
Funeral Home assisting is Aspen Mortuary, 4822 Cleveland Avenue, Lincoln, NE 68504. To view an on-line obituary or email condolences please visit Aspen Mortuary’s website at www.aspenaftercare.com.
Condolences for Nancy Virginia Wolfe
My condolences to the family and friends of Nancy. She always called me son number 5 and I always called her Mom number 2. Nancy always made me feel welcome and I always felt at home when at her house. Nancy had her priorities in place. Faith, family and service. Nancy loved the outdoors and nature. Nancy had great faith and was never afraid to talk about it. Nancy was a talented musician. When visiting her at Clark Jearey she often would pick up a hymnal and recite the lyrics of a hymn that would coincide to a conversation we might be having. Nancy is missed. I know she wants us to keep on living as it won’t be that long until we reunite in eternity. I am sincerely thankful I was able to be a part of Nancy and her family.
MY THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS I WITH YOU NOW AND ALWAYS 🌈 JEFF 😎🐞 JOHN JAMES JOE+FAMILY
HEAVEN IS A WONDERFUL PLACE TO GO God bless to you all
Jeff, and the Wolfe family,
So sorry to hear about your loss. My heart is heavy for you all. Even though I never had the chance to meet your Mom in person, she was a pure delight to talk to on the phone. Her love for her boys was very evident and she loved to talk about the grandkids. But the best thing I enjoyed with Nancy was the times she played the organ for me while on the phone. I bet she’s playing on a Beautiful Golden Organ now with her head thrown back, and smiling ear to ear. That is how I will remember her. Prayers for the family. Julie
Jeff, John, James and Joey,
Our deepest condolences to you and your families. Nancy was a wonderful lady, whenever we came over to play or later on when I brought my family over, she was always smiling and thankful that we had time to stop by. As kids she would put up with us rough housing in the basement and making sure we were ok whenever something feel to the ground and “Crashed.” Good times from our first day of school all they way to our weddings and children. I can still see her smile and hear her kind words. Bless you all during this difficult time.
Dana, Karen, Brandon and Jenna Duensing
To all my cousins,
I’m so sorry for your loss. I have great stories of Aunt Nancy that I’ll never forget.
May you always remember the good times!
Love you all
Sorry for your loss. Thoughts of comfort and strength to the family.
Nancy and I were friends through both being organists in the Tabitha chapel. She was such a unique individual, but I lost track of her after she left her home “on the hill.”
May she rest in total peace.
