Nancy's Story

Text size

Nancy Ann Korff, a resident of Lewiston, NY for 27 years, died after a courageous fight against cancer on December 3, 2016 at the age of 65. Born in St Louis, MO on October 18, 1951 she moved to Lockport, NY in 1972 and moved with her family to Lewiston, NY in 1989.
Family was everything to Nancy and her greatest joy came from spending time with them. She would often travel long distances to be of help to family or to just visit and spend quality time.
A self-reliant person, Nancy was also incredibly giving. She possessed a strong work ethic, something she learned from her father and passed along to her children and grandchildren. She maintained her home and property almost entirely on her own. In the fall one would be hard-pressed to find a leaf on her lawn. Before her illness forced her to resign, Nancy was an employee of Bass and VanHeusen at the Niagara Factory Outlets where she worked for 15 years. The time she spent there gave her much satisfaction, enabling her to combine a love of work with another love shopping. If there was a deal to be found, Nancy would find it, even if that meant purchasing Christmas presents 11 months in advance.
As was her wish, Nancy died in her home, surrounded by family. She will be missed greatly by her mother, Marilyn of St Louis, MO; son, Michael, his wife, Crystal and their daughter, Katie of Louisville, KY; her daughter, Donna, her husband Peter, and their daughters, Emma and Zoe of Rochester, NY; siblings, Lyn (John) Coburn, Sue (Edward) Bertram, Mark (Liz) Bockius, Judy (John) Nettler, David (Theresa) Bockius, and Donald (Donna) Bockius; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Nancy was predeceased by her father, Eugene.
