Nancy Jane Shumate Wills Death – In beloved remembrance of Nancy Jane Shumate Wills, a well loved and respected member of the Hopkinsville community, who slipped away from this life on November 15, 2023, at the age of 85, without suffering or struggle. PJ Hicks will preside over the celebration of Nancy’s life that will take place at the Maddux-Fuqua-Hinton Funeral Home on Saturday, November 18, 2023, at 2:00 PM.
Nancy’s life will be commemorated in this way. Following the conclusion of the funeral, her final resting place will be in Green Hill Memorial Gardens. On the day of the funeral, there will be a viewing at the funeral home from twelve in the morning until two in the afternoon. Nancy was the daughter of the late Seymour Shumate and Nonnie Dougherty Shumate.
She was born on September 25, 1938, in Hopkinsville, Kentucky. She was a committed housewife who found satisfaction in the process of constructing a home that was inviting and comfortable for her family. Due to the fact that she was an active member of the Hopkinsville Church of Christ, her dedication to her family went beyond the confines of her personal household.
The path that Nancy took through life was replete with moments of intense love and severe loss. Her sister, Joyce Wallace, and her husband, Charles Wesley Wills, both passed away before her. Her husband passed away first. In spite of all of these painful experiences, Nancy leaves behind a legacy that exemplifies strength and perseverance.
She is survived by her son Richard A. Wills and his wife Anita, as well as her daughters Brenda Cansler, Penny Frazier, and Cindy Carter, who is married to Bruce. Her eight grandkids and nine great-grandchildren, who brought her an incredible amount of pleasure and delight, are the ones who will carry on Nancy’s legacy of love for future generations.
The arrangements for the funeral have been committed to the care of Maddux-Fuqua-Hinton Funeral Home by the family, and the staff at this establishment treats this obligation with the highest care and respect. Let us remember Nancy for the love she shared, the lessons she taught.
And the indelible stamp she left on the hearts of those who were fortunate enough to know her during this time when friends and family are gathering to say their goodbyes. May she spend the rest of her life in everlasting peace, encircled by the love that she so selflessly shared with others while she was here on earth.
