Lyons - Nancy was born in Ontario, OR, as the 4th of 11 children.  As the older sister, Nancy was a “mother figure” to her younger brothers and sisters and a true friend to her older siblings. She earned a teaching degree from Eastern Oregon State College in 1973. Nancy married Bill Lulay August 10, 1974, and they had 4 children that were the pride and joy of her life.

Nancy was a true role model with a positive energy and amazing work ethic. Her strong compassion lead her to always put others first and she was happy to do it; volunteering in the community and helping others was part of her everyday routine. She hosted countless gatherings and special occasions with her warm welcome and amazing cooking. She influenced many children’s lives as a teacher and mentor. Nancy was an active member in the Catholic Church. She loved life, especially being a wife, mother, and grandmother. Nancy enjoyed visiting family, flowers, digging in the dirt, laughter and hugs.
