Nancy Willson

Nancy had a big heart for any four-legged animal and couldn't resist giving them a helping hand. She was born with the "gift-of-gab" and could "talk the ears off a donkey". Nancy shared her good sense of humor with her children, which was often tested as they grew up.

Nancy was preceded in death by daughter, Pam Willson Vukasin; brothers, Clint and Don Wright; both parents; and ex-husband.

She is survived by her sons, Dan (Stella Jean) Willson of Havre, MT and Steve (Jackie) Willson of Stacy MN; grandchildren, Meagan (AJ) Larson of Harris, MN, Colby (Ashlyn) Willson of North Branch, MN and Alyssa (Trevor) Solomon of Havre, MT; great-grandchildren, Elliana and Avaree Larson of North Branch, MN and Nakula Solomon of Havre, MT; sister, Debbie Gibbons, of Missoula, MT; sisters-in-law, Kathy Wright of Fort Benton, MT and Sharon Wright of Lake Stevens, WA, and many nieces and nephews.
