Nancy was the third born of 7 children to Fred and Wilma (Norris) Rich. She graduated from
Howell High School in 1958. Handsome Cecil Sanders caught her eye and they were married on
April 28,1962. They lived in the Fowlerville area and raised two children. Nancy was a loving and
devoted member of the 1st United Methodist Church in Fowlerville making some of her dearest
friends there. In her childhood home hung a cross stitch sampler that read "You don't have to
thank us or laugh at our jokes, sit deep and come often you're one of the folks". She lived that to
the letter, loving everyone and making them family. Working at Citizens and then the 1st National
Bank of Howell was her bread and butter, but her passion for travel and Ireland lead her to
Bridget Gallagher's. While there she greeted guests and worked with tour groups, but more
importantly, she traveled to Ireland along side her best friend Kathy. Nancy loved her kids,
grandkids and great grandkids with all her heart. Proceeded in death by husband Cecil Sanders,
parents Fred and Wilma Rich, siblings Larry and Jacquelin (Rich) Opperman, Donald Rich and
