Obituary for Nancy Ryan

Nancy Louise “Rexroat” Ryan, 68, passed away on December 8, 2018 at the Iowa Methodist Unity Medical Center in Des Moines, Iowa.

Nancy was born on August 12, 1950 to Velma ‘Darlene’ Seid (Stockstill) in Logan, Iowa. She grew up in Lytton, Iowa where she graduated high school. Nancy had two beautiful daughters she raised; Gina Valerie and Lisa Varie. Nancy worked in the office with VT Industries in Sac City, Iowa for 17 years before retiring in August of 2015 and relocating to Urbandale Iowa.

Nancy enjoyed spending time gardening, playing games, and making memories with family. She loved water balloon fights, the color run, Christmas with family at Walt Disney World, concerts, casinos (she only ever spent $20), time with friends in her neighborhood, riding her big red lawn tractor and spoiling her fur babies/grand fur babies.

Nancy is survived by her daughters; Gina Valerie (Blessington) Baertschi, married to Richard Baertschi of Wahoo, NE; and Lisa Varie Blessington of Urbandale Iowa; a daughter Kim Schimmer of Storm Lake Iowa; Grandchildren; Andrew Harrison, Jasmine Louise, Kaitlin Marie, Ashley Carol and Hailey Jean; Great Grandchildren; Mason Lee, Natalie Valerie, Roman Lee, Bentley Lynn, Kinsley Kay, and Braxxton Michael; Brothers Joe Rexroat and Kenny McDonough, Sisters Jean Rexroat, Patricia Koch, Eileen McGuire, Dee Sutherland, and Sandy Johnson. She has many nieces and nephews which she loved dearly.

She was preceded in death by her mother Darlene Sied, father Paul Sied, sister Rosalie Peters and brother Ted Rexroat.

Nancy’s heart had room for all and she never turned down an opportunity to bring special people into her family as she firmly believed that family is more than blood it is the family you choose which is lasting. She added these amazing people to her family: Diane Darling, Rachael Anderson, Mary Jackson, Traci Carpenter and granddaughter Taylor Carpenter.

Special mention of family which were especially close: Eve Luy, Jeff Kephart, Charlene Rexroat, Tina Devitt and Jessame Azinger.

The family will be hosting a Celebration of Life for Nancy after the holidays due to her request to be cremated. The family wishes for all to have a joyous holiday season as our mother wished for everyone to rejoice her memory.
