Two brothers Bob and Larry Hooste, two sisters Jackie Fitzjarrald and Becky Button and one grandson Bryce Ricketts preceded her in death.
Nancee’s children, grandchildren and family where the centerpiece of her life. Nancee was a dedicated at-home mom raising four children. She loved playing with the grandchildren over the years. There would be times you would catch her teaching them mischievous things, like how to ride a sleeping bag down the stairs.
She was self-employed, owning her own cleaning business and craft businesses called, “A Little Bit of This and That” and “LeeNans Curiosity Shop.” She had a special love for crafts and wood making. She spent many hours gathering new crafting ideas from DIY TV and Fixer Upper. She always looked forward to boat rides with her sisters and family along with her annual visit to the Par-A-Dice to ring in the New Year. When relaxing you could find her watching Lifetime for Women, while munching on a big buttery bowl of popcorn.
Cremation rites have been accorded. A celebration of her life will be held Sunday, October 28, 2018 from 1:00PM until 3:00PM at the Amvets Post 169, 660 Radio City Dr. in Pekin. In Lieu of flowers, donations are encouraged to Illinois Cancer Care Foundation-Trust & Hope Patient Service Program. To share a memory of condolence with her family, visit www.masonfuneralhomes.com.
