Nancy May (Levin) Muir passed away on August 26, 2022, at her home in Stockton, KS, at the age of 90. She was born on January 24, 1932, to Carl and May (Anderson) Levin in Salina, KS. She married Richard Davis “Dick” Muir on January 27, 1952, in Salina and they were blessed with 5 children: Mike, Dana, Brad, John and Pat.
Nancy grew up in Salina and graduated from Salina High School in 1950. After she graduated high school, she worked as a secretary for Scoular Grain Company. Nancy met Dick on a blind date arranged by very dear mutual friends. After being married, Nancy left the comforts of her family’s urban home and moved to the country where she and Dick started farming and started their family. After her children were raised, she worked as a secretary at the high school and later she worked at the Main Street Medical Clinic. Nancy loved to cook and care for her family, especially her grandchildren and great grandchildren, who called her GG. She enjoyed attending their school and sporting events. She always took her local great grands to the Library every Friday and made sure they all went to swimming lessons during the summer sessions. Nancy loved to play golf and was a member of the Sunflowerettes women’s golf division. She taught her grandson, Heath, how to golf and later enjoyed going to his many tournaments. Nancy was a member and board member of the Methodist Church, she was on the Valley View Board, she belonged to ESA Sorority and the Sunflower EHS.
Nancy was greatly loved and will be greatly missed. Her love, intelligence, positivity, laughter, faith, and compassion helped raise an amazing family and impacted the lives of all who knew her. Whether life was dealing with an easy hand or a difficult one, she taught us all how to live with amazing grace, joy, and happiness. Nancy had a love that knew no bounds this side of heaven, and has now found its fullness in Christ; for that we rejoice, until we see her again, on the other side of heaven.
