Nancy met and married Richard (Pete) Maupin on December 18, 1960 and they built a life on their farm in Monroe County. They enjoyed traveling all over the United States together and were always up for an adventure. Lighthouses and maps were a few of her favorite things.

Some of the most cherished memories include family time spent at their house at the Lake of the Ozarks with all the children and grandchildren; boating, swimming off the dock and enjoying large family breakfasts. They enjoyed spending many winters later in life in Florida.

Nancy was a schoolteacher for 18+ years at the Holliday C-2 School District sharing her love of reading and writing with all her students. She always let her positivity and light shine and found ways to help every student excel while encouraging them to dream big.
