Nancy M. Pursel, 71, of Mount Vernon passed away on Thursday morning, February 20, 2020 at the Ohio Eastern Star Home in Mount Vernon. She was born on July 28, 1948 in Warrensburg, Missouri to the late Isaac M. and Nancy E. (Daniel) Clifton Sr.
Nancy was a member of the Amity United Methodist Church and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. She worked for over 20 years for American National Can in Mt. Vernon.
Nancy is survived by her daughter, Carol Taylor of Columbus; step sons, Jeff Pursel of Mount Vernon and Bruce (Julie) Pursel (their daughter Julia) of Columbus; brother, Isaac M. (Minne) Clifton Jr. of Mount Vernon; nephews, Joe (Kathy) Clifton of Mount Vernon, Rick (Donna) Clifton of Las Vegas; and many dear friends and in-laws.
In addition to her parents, Nancy was preceded in death by her husband, H. Allen Pursel.
Anyone who knew Nancy, knew that she had three loves in her life—Allen, Carol and flowers. The family requests that you not send cards or flowers. Instead, they ask that you plant a flower this spring somewhere in your yard or community, take a picture of it in bloom and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. The family will print all of the pictures of ways that the world was made more beautiful in honor of Nancy and will create a scrapbook for memory. If you prefer to make a monetary donation, the family requests that donations be made to Kindred Hospice or the Multiple Sclerosis Society. The family will have a private service at a later date.
