Wadsworth — Nancy K. Adams, age 90 of Wadsworth, passed away on October 28, 2021 in Baltimore, Md. She was born on February 17, 1931 in Cambridge, Ohio to the late George B. and Beulah “Bee” (Evans) Evern.
Nancy moved to Wadsworth with her mother when she was in the 2nd grade, and she graduated from Wadsworth High School in 1949. She was a member of Grace Lutheran Church. Mom enjoyed playing cards and Bingo. She loved going for rides and going out for dinner. She also enjoyed cooking, liked to decorate, and she loved being with her friends and her family. Nancy was very involved with the friends that she graduated with from High School, and was very involved in the Democratic Club. As a youngster she was involved in the Foot Lighters and she loved to roller skate. Mom loved to dance and her favorite dance was the jitterbug. She loved to listen to Frank Sinatra, The Lettermen and Rod Stewart.
Along with her parents and step-father, William F. Green, Nancy was preceded in death by her son, C. David Lauck; grandson, Jeffrey R. Lauck; and son-in-law, Tim Kreiger. She is survived by her daughters, Sherry Laktash and Lisa Lauck-Stevens (Victor); grandchildren, Sean and Stephanie Laktash and Samantha Kreiger; her first cousin, Donna Jean Potts; and second cousin, “Little” Nancy Pound. Mom had a very special friend, her caregiver, Samantha Sadodi. She had many fun times with her and she loved her dearly.
Mom had many “bumps” throughout her life which made her into a very strong and determined woman. She was a devoted mother, and she always said and showed that “we were her world and her life”. She will be greatly missed and always remembered. She would say to us, “Take the things you like that I’ve taught you and throw away the rest”. However, she got upset if you attempted to throw anything away that she taught us! She had a great sense of humor and a very distinctive laugh. Mom was a worker, and determined to always provide and care for her children. She was a classy lady with drive, determination and intelligence and she loved life! Her nickname in Maryland was “Fancy Nancy”.
She fought till the very end and is now at peace and with her son and loved ones. It’s not goodbye forever, it’s just goodbye for now. I love you, Mother with my whole heart and soul. What a wonderful seven weeks we had. We will ALL be together again one day.
The family will receive friends on Thursday, November 4th, from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Hilliard-Rospert Funeral Home, 174 N. Lyman St. in Wadsworth. Funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. on Friday, November 5th at Grace Lutheran Church, 146 High St., Wadsworth with Pastor Barbara Bartholomew officiating. Burial will follow at Woodlawn Cemetery.
