SMITHVILLE – Nancy Louise Holt, Age 66, passed away peacefully at Ohio s Hospice LifeCare on Tuesday, December 3, 2019 following a courageous battle with cancer. She was born on June 11, 1953 to the late Warren and Mabel Jordan. Nancy graduated from the Joint Vocational School in 1971 and she married Charlie Holt, Jr. on January 20, 1973, he survives. They were residents of Smithville where they raised their two children, Ammey and Keith.
She worked in her parents restaurants for many years and was a stay-at-home mother. She started a career later in life at Smith Dairy in Orrville in customer service and retired from the IT Department in December 2011. She has many cherished friends from the Dairy.
Nancy loved her grandchildren with all her heart, she referred to them as her 4 JOES, Jackson (McNally), Owen (McNally), Easton (Holt) and Savena (Holt) and enjoyed trips with Charlie to the mountain in VA to visit Keith and his family. She never met a stranger and always livened up the room when she walked in. She enjoyed traveling and loved celebrating birthdays in a big way. She and Charlie had a lot of adventures together and took a trip of a lifetime to Alaska. She had another wonderful trip to Ireland with her sister, Linda. She was proud of completing triathlons and 5K races and she appreciated the long-time friendships of her very close high school friends, Sharon Howard and Ruth McCoy. Her flowerbeds were always beautiful and she loved crocheting dishcloths. Nancy also made a lot of special friends during her cancer journey and touched a lot of people s lives.
