In memory of
Nancy McKenzie Frost
FROST , NANCY MCKENZIE 10/30/1931 - 9/9/2020 Ann Arbor Nancy McKenzie Frost Nancy, an avid Advanced Master Gardener, finally laid down her trusted Japanese weeding tool, the hori hori, and placed it beside her previously retired tennis racquet. She was passionate about both tennis and gardening and derived much joy from her participation in them. Nancy was born in "North End", Detroit. She attended Grosse Pointe Academy; after two years at Briarcliff College in New York, she received her Batchelor's degree from the University of Arizona in Tucson where she was a member of the Kappa Kappa Gama sorority. A few months after her graduation from the University of Arizona, Nancy's younger sister Jane conspired with Jerry's sister, Judy, to arrange a blind date for the two. Thirteen dates later, a marriage proposal was offered and accepted. There followed almost seven decades of enduring love and true friendship. After their children were grown, she devoted many hours to volunteer work as a member of the Birmingham Junior League. Her life was filled the joy and excitements of raising four sons and the satisfaction of attaining her Advanced Master Gardener certificate. She was one of a small group of Grand Rapids gardeners who met with Fred Meijer as he developed his vision for the Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park. She and Jerry have traveled the world extensively, including three circumnavigations of the globe and visits to Antarctica in the south and Svarlbard Island, the northernmost settled island on earth. Her interaction with the peoples of remate places was a highlight of these trips. Nancy's greatest accomplishment was bringing joy into the lives of others. Her beautiful smile and the surprise, "Boo! Did I 'skeer' you?", never failed to bring a smile to the face of her target. Despite the discomfort of her advancing Scoliosis, she never failed to respond with a positive "SuperDandy!" when asked how she was doing. She will be sorely missed by those many lives she has touched. Born October 30th, 1931 in Detroit Michigan Death September 9th, 2020 in Ann Arbor, Michigan Age - 88 Nancy is survived by her husband of 67 years, Jerrold Armour Frost, Jr.; Four sons: Jerrold Armour Frost, III; Christian McKenzie Frost; Todd Hamilton Frost and Timothy Wickham Frost. Four Grandchildren: Mariel, Jerrold IV, Tyler and Benjamin. Sister Jane (Mullin), of East Jordan, Michigan Nieces Kerry, Kristen, Roberta and Nephews Thomas and John Memorial contributions may be made to Arbor Hospice.
