Obituary of Nancy Lou Timpe
Nancy Lou Baker was born on July 30, 1940 in Toledo, Ohio. She was one of ten children born from the union of David William and Eileen Mae (Smith) Baker.
At the age of 12, Nancy taught herself to play the accordion by ear, without any form of lessons. Growing up, Nancy would entertain her family and friends by playing her accordion, which included songs written by her and her sister, Irma Turk.
Besides her love for music, Nancy was very talented in baking breads, rolls and Christmas cookies, which she took delight in doing very much. She was known to her family as a “homestyle” cook and many expressed, she made the best coleslaw and potato salads ever.
Above all, Nancy loved her family. Her children feel deeply that she was their rock. She cherished the times she could spend with her family, no matter the occasion. She had a heart of gold and her desire was to always help others in need and she often assisted her children and grandchildren with their various hardships. Nancy was a born again Christian and Loved the LORD.
In her quiet time, as much as she appreciated keeping up with the current events in the world, Nancy would also take in a show or two of “America’s Got Talent”. Also, on occasion, Nancy could be found at any of the local Bingo halls, taking her chances to win that night’s jackpot and enjoying the company of some great friends.
