MANSFIELD: Nancy S. Truex, age 73, of Mansfield went to be with the Lord Thursday, March 11, 2021 in her home surrounded by her loving family.
She was born February 26, 1948 in Ashland, to Ralph and Harriette (Miller) Mutchler. She graduated from Ashland High School in 1966 and attended The Ohio State University, pursuing her dream of becoming a teacher.
She graduated in 1970 and began her 30+ year tenure at Madison High School teaching cooperative business educational classes. Nancy impacted the lives of many students and forged bonds that lasted a lifetime. After retiring she enjoyed teaching typing at the correctional facility.
On February 27, 1971 she married Michael Truex. Together they raised their two children, Mark and Julie. Nancy was a very proud and loving mom who dearly enjoyed supporting her kids throughout all phases of their lives.
She was a member of Berean Baptist Church since 1985 and volunteered for Partners in Christ. Through this program, Nancy adopted several Dominican children and sponsored them through their school years and beyond. She even had the privilege to visit them in person and maintained relationships into their adult lives.
Nancy enjoyed trips with Mike and the kids, especially to Sanibel Island. She loved the excitement of Christmas time and spending time with her grandbabies. She appreciated the beauty of nature provided by God, especially flowers, the mountains and the sea.
Her legacy will be her love for Christ, extending His grace as a wife, mother, grandmother, friend, and teacher.

Mitchell, KY; five grandchildren Isabella and Elise Conrad, and Ariel, Adelyn and Ethan Truex, siblings Barbara and Don Crist, Don and Sandy Mutchler, and Joyce and Don Dailey, nieces, nephews and friends in Christ.
