Nancy was born July 17, 1937, in Bettendorf, Iowa, the daughter of Earl and Loretta (Kimball) Carlson. She graduated from Bettendorf High School. Nancy married John Pratt in Peoria, Ill. They had two children, John and Jennifer.

Nancy’s career was very important to her, which she demonstrated through her tireless dedication to her employers and coworkers while keeping a keen sense of humor and enjoying every minute. After high school, Nancy started her career at Iowa-Illinois Gas and Electric (now MidAmerican Energy) in 1956 as an executive secretary. She was promoted into the billing department as a rate specialist and soon became a billing subject matter expert for the company. She continued to excel in her role, ultimately concluding her career as Supervisor of Industrial Billing after 37 years of service to the company. After retirement, she returned to MidAmerican as a consultant for another five years. She then worked at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa, ACT in Iowa City as a contingent for over 10 years, and Scholarship America in Coralville.

Nancy was always active. She walked her dog “Nala” daily and attended Curves. She loved to play bridge, read, and shop. Nancy loved her family and dogs, was exceptionally proud of her kids, and enjoyed the friendship of her neighbors, life-long work friends, and bridge groups.

Nancy is survived by her two children, Jennifer Pratt of Grand Rapids, Mich., and John (Diana) Pratt of Walker, Minn.; grandchildren, Brandon (Jennifer) Pratt of North Liberty and Blake (Kat) Pratt of Walker, Minn.; great-grandchildren, Leandro, Cristiano, Enzo, and William.

Nancy was preceded in death by her parents and her husband, John.
