Nancy was born in Michigan on March 15, 1958 to Clarence Blaha and Mae Blaha (Deal). At a young age she moved to Fort Dodge, Iowa where she spent most of her life. After high school she married Robert Klinger and they had 3 children. For many of those years she was employed with Dairy Queen. Many years later she was divorced and found her boyfriend Jeffery Stockwell that she spent the rest of her life with. During this time she was employed with the Fort Dodge community school District and Taher in the food service department. It was the highlight of her day seeing all the children going through the line. In her free time she loves spending time with her grandkids and attending their many activities. Nancy was a bohunk through and through but she had a big heart and enjoyed taking care of others!
