Per Nancy's wishes, she has donated her body to Des Moines University for medical research.
Nancy Ann Kelly, daughter of Russell Mann and Anna Kruse Mann was born Thursday, January 7, 1932, in Spencer.
Nancy received her education in Spencer, and after graduating from Spencer High School she served in the Air Force.
Nancy was an award winning copywriter in the direct marketing industry, with a career that spanned nearly 30 years. In later years, she became a massage therapist and also worked for Coen-Betty Funeral Home and SIRF in Creston.
Nancy had lived in Osceola for the past year.
She was preceded in death by her parents; brother, Thomas Mann; and aunt, Della Bubois.
Nancy is survived by daughter, Ann Kelly Lovell of Osceola; son, Kevin Kelly and wife, Jennie of Medina, Minn; three grandchildren; and two step-grandchildren.
Because Nancy loved animals, contributions may be made to the Clarke County Animal Shelter in Osceola in her name.
