NANCY JEAN PETTIT Obituary
NANCY JEAN PETTIT Nancy Jean Pettit, age 69, passed away peacefully on Monday, September 26, 2016, in her home in Pahrump, Nev., with her husband holding her hand after her third courageous battle with cancer. A native Californian, Nancy was born in Lompoc, Calif., on May 2, 1947. She started a successful business as a cosmetician in Santa Maria, Calf., developing long-lasting friendships with many of her clients. Nancy loved bowling and was always a team player with an encouraging smile for everyone. Although she had no biological children, Nancy raised five children as her own and always had a generous heart towards anyone who needed her. She was a caring and attentive wife for over 27 years of marriage to Larry Pettit. Nancy lived life to the fullest, and when she retired to take on the open road with her husband, Larry and mother-in-law, Polly, it was a fulfillment of a dream. Nancy and Larry loved adventuring together and would often volunteer as hosts at national parks. The couple moved to Pahrump, Nev., in 2005. Nancy spent hours collecting rocks for the garden while taking long walks with their treasured dog, Sadie, Her landscaping and gardening work at home is a testament to her boundless energy, hard work ethic and love of beauty. She will be deeply missed by any who knew her. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the cancer .
