Nancy Townsend was born Oct. 11, 1936, in Chicago. Later in life, she lived in California and Washington and permanently resided in Idaho, as she wished to be closer to her family.

She was an adventurous, fun and active person in the lives of her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and friends, on whom she made a significant impact.

Her joys in life were tending to her garden, collecting Native American art, hiking, watching Western movies, roller-skating, chocolate, Elvis Presley and most especially, sharing all of these with her loved ones.

The most significant impact Nancy left has been leaving us to join our Lord, and her grandson, Robert, in Heaven on Monday, June 13, 2022.

She is missed tremendously and is forever in our hearts.

Nancy is survived by her daughters, Kathleen Glover and Deborah Townsend; sons, Frank DeFoe and John DeFoe; granddaughters, Rebecca Jordan, Rhiannon Larson, Vanessa Ellsworth and Sarah Reynolds; grandsons Elijah DeFoe and Joshua Defoe; and several great-grandchildren.

Inurnment will take place at a future date.

In lieu of flowers, donations to your local animal shelters would be appreciated.
