Nancy Dell Weyrick passed away on May 16, 2014 at her home in Renton, Wash. She was born Nancy Dell Sullivan on August 24, 1952 to Glelynn and Ivadelle Sullivan and was raised on the banks of Palmer Lake near Loomis, WA.
After high school, she moved to Western Washington where she met her future husband and closest friend, Robert Weyrick. They were married on January 29, 1977 after a 5 year courtship. Their wedding music consisted of Bob playing his flute to his beloved Nance. He continued to play his flute to her their entire life and will continue to play to her for the entirety of his.
There were very few things that had real meaning in life for Nancy. Her Husband, her Home, her Family; and Truth, Honesty and Respect. When that was in balance, Life was in balance.
She was also a good cook…wrong! She was a Great Chef. She could make a bologna sandwich into a work of art. And it wasn’t work. It was a Love; a Passion. She smiled and she swayed as she created her evening delicacy. And she had no problem at all telling Bob that it was good. Bob didn’t argue and possibly licked his plate.
Nancy had other loves as well. She was a wonderful fisherwoman who had nothing but a big grin on her face if she was fishing. That often came with camping, where there was nothing lost on the open flames of a campfire.
There were many things that she loved. Flowers, gardening, music nights, dancing in the kitchen, playing congas and being happy. A bouquet of flowers would bring endless hours of arrangement and adoration, and her kitty Herbie was as precious as life itself.
Nancy was a nurse. An RN. She was a nurse that cared about all of her patients. She cared about their suffering and she cared about their families. She always made sure that her patients and families received the care that they needed.
Those that had the good fortune to know Nancy, loved Nancy. It’s just the way it was. And she loved back; never being afraid to say “I love you” and mean it. Her heart was as beautiful as she was.
She is survived by her husband Bob, her mother Ivadelle, her sister Gay, her brother Greg, her grandsons Nathan, Matthew, Eli, her God daughters Micah & Sarah and her nephews Ryan & Sean.
Nancy’s final resting place will be at the Loomis Mountainview cemetery next to her Dad where she will forever be able to watch over Chopaka Mountain, apple orchards and the valley she was raised in and loved. Bob will be joining her there later.
A graveside service will be held at the Loomis Mountainview cemetery on June 14, 2014 at 11 a.m. A potluck lunch will be held at Sully’s in Loomis following the service.
