In memory of
Donley, Nancy 1934 - 2017 Nancy Lou (Lawrence) Donley, age 82, of Columbus, Ohio went home to be with the Lord on Monday, December 25, 2017. Nancy was born on December 28, 1934 in Clarkston, Michigan to the late Claude Bruce Lawrence and the late Cora Columbia (Sellers) Lawrence. She graduated from Walled Lake High School in 1952 and attended Michigan State University. On April 12, 1957, she married Forrest Donley. Nancy spent most of her life in the Midwest and liked nothing better than to return to the Great Lakes. She was a Michigander at heart all her life. Nancy was active in her church and local community, volunteering countless hours teaching Sunday school, Awanas, assisting at the Xenos snack bar, delivering meals for Meals on Wheels and supporting the Jackson Symphony. No matter where she lived from Michigan and Ohio to Colorado, Nancy gave back to those around her.

She is survived by her children, Clark Donley, Holly (Bob) Borghese, and Arlene (Jay) Moss; sister, Jeannette (Hubert) Green; 6 grandchildren; 3 great-grandchildren; numerous nieces and nephews.
