Nancy Thomas, 74, passed away unexpectedly December 19th, 2021. A hard-nosed, coffee fuelled Insurance expert, she could accurately cite the value of a car, truck or boat at 100 paces or more.
This is not an advertisement for an insurance company, but an obituary for a badass Woman, Mother, Grandmother and Great-Grandmother who was born on November 29th, 1947 in Montreal. She leaves behind a large contingent of lovely friends and a semi functional family that she was very proud of. Nancy was the Valedictorian of the School of Hard Knocks and a Master of schooling you in how to “smarten up”. She was world-renowned for her lack of patience, not holding back her opinion and a knack for telling it like it is. She always told you the truth even if it wasn’t what you wanted to hear. With that said she was genuine and generous to a fault, a pussy cat at heart (or lion) and yet she sugar coated nothing. Her extensive vocabulary was more than highly proficient at knowing more curse words than most people learned in a lifetime. She was a wonderful cook and loved to spoil all her babies rotten with every type of stew, soup, any form of potato as well as the occasional juicy steak. Egg and cheese English Muffins – along with her homemade chicken soup – cured every ailment known to man. (Patent Pending)
All of her clients, friends and family loved her dearly and will never forget her tenacity, wit, charm, grace (when pertinent) and undying love and caring for them. She will be sorely missed and is survived by her brilliant and humble children: Kim and Erick Miranda (son-in-law), Geoff and Gloria Taylor (daughter-in-law) and Michael and Michelle Taylor (daughter-in-law), grandchildren: John and Myla Miranda, Kyle Taylor, Brandon Taylor, Codie and Jessica Malott, and Karissa Malott, and great-grandchildren: Landon and Asa Miranda and Winter Malott. Nancy will also be missed by her Special Friends who are a part of her family, The Erickson Family and the Klapko Family who were always special in Nancy’s heart.
A ‘Celebration of Life’ will be held in June 2022, in lieu of a service, once COVID decides to chill the hell out and Mother Nature thaws out.
