Nancy graduated in 1960 from Stillwater High School and started her career with Hooley's Grocery in Stillwater. She married Donald Raymond in 1961. They had three children and later divorced.

Nancy continued her education by taking night classes during her working years to become a senior accountant and worked 42 years at Hooley's/Cub Foods corporate offices in Stillwater.

After retiring Nancy worked as an accountant for the Somerset American Legion. She also worked at Kohls in Stillwater, and for Home Instead taking care of elderly in their home. She enjoyed volunteering at Lakeview Hospital, and Boutwells Landing. She loved going to get her hair done, going out for lunch and going to play bingo. She also loved to take a ride over to Cady Cheese Factory to buy her favorite cheese.

She also stayed active throughout her lifetime by going to flea markets, art fairs, and festivals. Nancy loved her condo overlooking the St. Croix River.
