Nancy was born on March 10, 1932 in Tulsa, Oklahoma to Minnie (Scott) Grimm and Homer Grimm.

On December 24, 1965 she married the love of her life, Donald Roy Atnip in Durant, Oklahoma.

Nancy enjoyed a simple life, loving the country and driving on back roads. She spent a lot of her time at flea markets and spending time with her family. Nancy collected dolls that were displayed throughout her home and was a romance novel enthusiast. She was always dressed to impress with her long painted nails, make-up and jewelry.

Nancy had a free spirit personality who loved to have fun. Her good sense of humor came in handy when her children would often play jokes on her. They knew their mother was gentle but she could be tough. Nancy had a good heart and shared her love with many people. She will be greatly missed.
