Nancy Stoffel died Nov. 22, 2007, in Seguin, of complications from Parkinson”s disease. Nancy was born on Oct. 21, 1936, in Fentress, Texas, the daughter of Albert H. and Maymie Lois (Pyland) Munk.
She grew up in Fentress and graduated from Prairie Lea High School in 1955, remaining in Texas until 1970, when she moved to Virginia Beach, Va. In 1978, she met her husband
Mike Stoffel, then a Captain in the U.S. Navy, and the two were wed in June 1979.
After Mike”s retirement, the couple lived in Frederick, Md., Omaha, Neb., and Lincoln, Neb., before returning to Texas in 1989.
Nancy was active in the antique business for several years attending shows in the near-Texas area and conducting many estate sales in the Seguin area. She was active in church activities and was a long-time member of the Sharer”s Sunday school. She also worked at the Seguin Christian Cupboard, an organization that she chaired for several years until ill health forced her retirement.
