Nancy was born on April 12, 1935 in Bellona, N.Y. the daughter of the late William and Frances Bushen Murdock. She grew up in Waterloo, N.Y. as a child before moving to Phelps where she has been a lifelong resident and raised her family. Nancy retired from the Finger Lakes DDSO where she was a direct care giver. She was also an Election Inspector for the Republican Party. Nancy always welcomed anyone that was in need into her home or just to have dinner with the family. A trait that all of her children believe in and practice in their lives. Nancy was also a very strong woman and raised her children to be “Tough as Nails”.
