Nancy Lee Sells Smith

April 12, 1939 ~ June 14, 2018 (age 79)

A memorial service and celebration of life will be held for Nancy Lee Sells Smith, at 1 p.m., Saturday, June 30, at the Coos Bay Chapel in Coos Bay. She went to be with the Lord June 14, 2018.

Nancy Lee resided in Willamette Spring Memory Care in Corvallis for the last year and a half of her life. She was a favorite of many of her caregivers.

We will all miss her laugh and sense of humor. Nancy loved to laugh.

Nancy's strong faith and fellowship with Jesus began at 8 years old and lasted her whole life. She strived to be the Christian Christ would want her to be and took much comfort in his words as she dealt with her lifelong illness. Nancy's generosity and kindness knew no bounds. She donated to many charities each and every month in thankfulness for everything Christ had done for her.

She will be terribly missed but we rejoice she is at home with her God.

Nancy was preceded in death by her parents, Loring and Iva Robinson; sisters, Betty Nowlin and Patty Huntley; and brother, Grant Robinson.

She is survived by her two children, Brian Sells of Carson City, Nev. and Kathy Davis of Depoe Bay.
