Nancy Mills was born on Dec. 23, 1948, the daughter of Donald and Marie (Rathjen) Mills. She was a 1967 graduate of Lone Tree High School and then received her RN degree from St. Luke’s Nursing School in Cedar Rapids. On Aug. 22, 1970, Nancy was united in marriage to Alan Burr in Nichols, Iowa. Nancy worked as an RN early in life and then became a homemaker, taking care of her family and much more. Nancy was a past member of T.T.T. She enjoyed gardening, flowers, yard work, baking, taking care of baby calves, Sunday 4 o’clock treats, the holidays, genealogy, especially “Find a Grave” and was an avid Iowa Hawkeye men’s basketball fan but, most of all, she dearly loved to spend time with her family.
