Nancy Lynn Krutckoff

Nancy Lynn (Corn) Krutckoff, sister, wife, mom and grandmother, went to heaven on Monday, Jan. 20, 2014.

Nancy was born in Whiteland on April 12, 1930, to Curtis and Treva Corn and was the sister of Richard Corn and the late Barbara (Corn) Fleming Paris.

As a young girl, Nancy enjoyed cheerleading and basketball.

She moved to Harlingen, Texas, after high school and worked in a portrait studio, where she met the love of her life, U.S. Air Force Airman Gerald Charles Krutckoff. Nancy loved being an officer’s wife and hostess, and together they started a family while stationed at various airbases throughout the West.

A proud resident of Tempe, Ariz., for more than 50 years, she loved being outdoors in the sun. She had an amazing “green thumb” and always had a garden full of beautiful flowers and roses. A creative woman, Nancy enjoyed making flower arrangements and had the unique talent of recycling items to make something beautiful. She was a beautiful and strong lady, a breast-cancer survivor, and often sought a natural approach to healing.

Nancy was preceded in death by her husband, Gerald; and a son, Kent Layne Krutckoff.

She is survived by a son, Randy (Alta); and two daughters, Lynette (Brian) Smith and Tonja (Perry) Reinert. She adored her granddaughters, Hannah, Lindsey, Julia and Katelyn.

Our mom will be sorely missed, but we are blessed to carry on her many family traditions and cherished memory.

A celebration of her 83 years of life will be at 2:30 p.m. Saturday at Green Acres Mortuary, 401 N. Hayden Road in Scottsdale, Ariz.
