Nancy Marie Reed, age 68 and a longtime resident of Warsaw, passed away quietly on March 26, 2019 at 6:50 a.m. in her Warsaw home.
Born on August 28, 1950, Nancy was the daughter of John Jay and Donna May (Smith) Reed. She held several jobs but was most known for her time spent cooking at the Pierceton American Legion. She was also employed by R.R. Donnelley, Warsaw Plating and C.F. Gomma.
Protective and sometimes stubborn, Nancy was a devoted grandmother who loved time spent with her family. She knew nearly everyone and everyone knew her. Nancy enjoyed fishing, watching Kyle Busch during NASCAR races, and listening to country music, especially that of Trace Adkins. She was previously a member of the American Legion Auxiliary.
Those who are left with memories to cherish include three sons: John (Hope) Sutherlin of Warsaw, Scott (Tanja) Sutherlin of Fort Wayne, Travis (Jodi) Sutherlin of Elkhart; two sisters, Amy (Bill) Smith of Baytown, Texas and Gayle (Dave) Woodling of Warsaw and a brother, Mark (Cynthia) Reed of Warsaw. Also surviving are eleven grandchildren and numerous great-grandchildren. Nancy was preceded in death by a brother, Dana Reed; sister, Jo Reed; mother, Donna Woodling; step-father, Kenneth "Bing" Woodling; and father, John Reed.
Services for Nancy will include a graveside which will be held at Oakwood Cemetery at a later date.
