Nancy Virginia Wolfe

featured image

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.

Perry George Worster

featured image

Perry Worster – husband, father, grandfather, friend – passed away on Friday, May 8, 2020, after a long battle with Alzheimer’s and a much shorter battle with cancer.  Perry was born March 10, 1941 in Hallam, Nebraska to George and Pauline Worster. With the exceptions of the two years he spent in Vietnam, serving his nation in the U.S. Army, and the weekdays he spent working in Kansas City to keep his family fed and clothed during the steep recession of the early 1980s, Perry was a lifelong Nebraskan.  The consummate outdoorsman, Perry was a hunter, fisherman, gardener, and trapper.  In the final summer before Alzheimer’s robbed him of his memory and robbed his family of his gracious and kindly companionship, he and his grandchildren proudly and lovingly grew and harvested more than 800 cucumbers in his little backyard plot.  He will be missed.  He has been missed.

Preceded in death by his wife of 42 years, Pamela (Johnson) Worster. He is survived by daughters Melissa (Steve) Soukup, Amanda Worster, and Kendra Worster; grandchildren, Emma, John, and Joseph Soukup, and Layton Dush.

No service at this time.    In lieu of flowers, monetary memorials may be sent to the family for future designation. For condolences, please use the form below.

Diane had a wonderful ability to focus on the positive aspects of life and find the good in people. She had a drive to encourage people to make their lives better, always willing to lend a helping hand and an empathetic ear to both friends and strangers alike.

Diane was blessed to have a wide variety of friends. She valued each one for the unique gifts they brought to her life. She cherished them, as they cherished her. Although saddened by her passing, her family and friends take great delight and comfort from having shared her life.

Diane’s body has been cremated, but her joyous spirit lives on in all that were fortunate to have known her. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
