Coleman and Rockwood

Nancy Yvonne Helms, passed away at the age of 71 in Abilene, Texas at Hendrick Medical Center. Nancy was born on January 24, 1953, in Coleman, Texas, to her loving parents A.C. "Dago" Alexander and Vivian McCullough Alexander Waits.

 

Throughout her life, Nancy made meaningful contributions through her work as a bookkeeper at various establishments including Coleman County Medical Center, J.E. Stevens Hardware, and Coleman Veterinary Clinic. She was known for her unwavering commitment to her duties.

 

Aside from her professional endeavors, Nancy had a passion for cooking and baking. She took boundless joy in preparing homemade cookies which she always kept stocked in the freezer, ready to be enjoyed by family and friends. Family held a special place in Nancy's heart, and she cherished every moment spent with them. Her enthusiasm for engaging in activities with loved ones was evident, especially during spirited games of Yahtzee where her excitement would resonate throughout the room.

 

In her spare time, Nancy found solace tending to her meticulous flower beds and engaging in yard work. She also readily helped on the ranch whenever needed, highlighting her reliability and readiness to lend a helping hand.

 

Nancy's love for animals shone brightly as she had a penchant for adopting stray dogs that crossed her path. Her compassion extended beyond humans, demonstrating her kind and nurturing spirit towards all beings.
