Nancy Ann Brumfield, 90, passed away at home surrounded by her loving family on Sunday, May 31, 2020. She was born Jan. 17, 1930, in Noblesville, to Joseph Lawrence and Vera Esther (Stum) Prout and moved to Warsaw in early childhood.
Nancy was a 1947 graduate of Warsaw High School. After raising her children in the Lutheran faith, she converted to Catholicism and was a member of Sacred Heat Catholic Church. She worked in the Order Department at DePuy Orthopaedics and retired in 1995. She was a diehard Cubs fan and was rumored to occasionally sneak out of work early to go home and watch an afternoon game. Nancy was a serious animal lover and never met a dog she didn’t like. She played on the DePuy women’s softball team and also enjoyed bowling, golfing and playing bridge.
She was a devoted Elvis fan and saw him perform his final concert in Indianapolis. In her own words, Nancy was sweet, charming, and full of “it”. When asked how she was doing or feeling, she nearly always smiled and answered, “Two thumbs up!” Nancy loved her children and grandchildren dearly but was especially thrilled when she became a great grandmother. She taught her grandchildren to bowl, golf, bake chocolate pie and always let them win at cards and board games. She never missed her grandkid’s t-ball, softball, baseball, or volleyball games and always had the best snacks for frequent sleepovers.
Nancy is survived by daughters, Jody (Tom) Burns of Warsaw and Patty (Chuck) Williams of Las Vegas, Nev.; sister, Pat (Richard) Wheeler of Woodland, Calif.; sister-in-law, Mary Prout of Warsaw; daughter-in-law, Dorothy Brumfield of Lady Lake Fla.; grandchildren, Stuart Brumfield of Lady Lake, Fla.; Morgan Kelly of Port St. Lucie, Fla.; Kate (Paul) Nowak of Warsaw, Sara Burns of Indianapolis; Megan Burns of Warsaw, Cameron (Shannon Kelly) Williams of Warsaw; Casey (Diane) Williams of Los Angeles, Calif.; and Marcia (Jeb) Austin of Las Vegas Nev.; and seven great-grandchildren.
