Nancy was born on March 1, 1953, in Mason City, the daughter of Kenneth and Arlene (Alt) Sweeney. She graduated from Mason City High School with the Class of 1971. In September of 1976 Nancy married Terry Theilen and together they had three children. Nancy was always a hard worker, and enjoyed several jobs throughout her life including Central Show Printing, The Shopper, Rockwell International, Stoyles, and Curries. Terry and Nancy also owned a European Tan Spa for a few years which Nancy operated. Nancy never met a stranger, she had a kind heart, and liked to have fun. Spending time with her friends and family and watching her grandchildren grow up were special times she cherished. She enjoyed watching sports, especially the Minnesota Twins, the Minnesota Vikings, and the Iowa Hawkeyes and she had lots of sweatshirts and hats to show her support. Nancy was a great cook and loved cooking, sharing her recipes and food, and watching her cooking shows on the Food Network. She sewed clothing for Amanda, made Halloween costumes for the three kids, enjoyed cross stitching and many other crafting things in her younger years. Gardening was also one of her favorite things to do, as Terry and Nancy always planted a large garden every spring together and canned the many tomatoes and peppers that flourished. Nancy also loved the companionship of her dogs through the years, especially Maggie and Toby, as they brought her much comfort after the loss of Terry. Those left to cherish memories of Nancy are her children, Amanda (Joe) Klatt, Josh Theilen, and Ryan Theilen; grandchildren Owen, Oliver, and Mikayla; siblings, Carolyn (Michael) Lura, and Jim Sweeney; sister-in-law, Dawn Theilen, brother-in-law, Jerry (Mary) Theilen; as well as several nieces, nephews and other extended family members and friends. Nancy is preceded in death by her husband, Terry Theilen; her parents, her in-laws Elmer and Doris; sister-in-law Linda Sweeney; and special dogs Maggie, Toby, Max, and Bess.
