Nancy is remembered as a very gently, loving and kind Woman who’s love for horses was evident in all her conversations. Nancy believed that the only way to train a horse was through Pat Parelli’s tried and true horse training. Nancy loved to tell the stories of growing up with her parents and working in the dress shop with her Mother, and her love of the Native American culture, volunteering at the Washita Battlefield National Historic Site. Nancy was active in her community, taking pride in serving as the Chamber President at one time.
Nancy always had a nurturing heart, caring for family and others before herself. Nancy and Mel lived a full life in Cheyenne, participating in the local parades showing Mel’s vintage cars and even hooking up a teams of horses all decked out to parade them down the street in style.
Nancy was proceeded in death by her parents Elza and Alva Patton, her grandparents Watts and Nellie Keener, Charlie and Susie Patton, and the love of her life Melvin Wessels.
