Nancy I. Gillmore, 75, of Springville, passed away Wednesday, Feb. 5, 2020, in the comfort of her home surrounded by her family. Nancy’s wishes were to donate her body to help others through the University of Iowa, Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology, Deeded Body Program for medical education and research. A celebration of Nancy’s life was held from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 8, 2020, at the American Legion, located at 252 Broadway Street in Springville. A private family burial will take place at Springville Cemetery at a later date.

Nancy spent her life loving and supporting her family and loved ones. She enjoyed being a part of any activities her grandchildren were involved in, especially basketball.
