Obituary

Nancy Hessler passed away early on 13 January at her home in Sierra Vista. She was born in Cincinnati on July 11th, 1938 - her parents Harryet Eshman and Eddie Eshman, both deceased.

She is survived by her husband Tom Hessler. She married Tom in1963 becoming an Army wife. They have four children, Susan Hessler, Cara Snyder (Jim), T.J. Hessler (Marci) and Angela Daddario. Her grandchildren are Christina Thompson, Charles “Keegan” Gross, Gina Young (Domonique), Greg Snyder, Eddie Hessler, Carter Daddario, and Cole Daddario.

Nancy received her Master of Teaching degree from the University of Arizona in 1979 and was with the Sierra Vista school system for many years. Nancy was the instigator and driver in the project to bring over fifty of the now famous Santas-of-the-World which are displayed every year in Veterans Memorial Park. Over the years, she received nine first and second place ribbons for her trees and wreaths entered in the Festival-of-Trees, a charity event, in the Mall at Sierra Vista. Obviously she loved anything Christmas. Nancy served on the Sierra Vista Symphony Association board for several years. During that period the association’s Men-Who-Cook annual event was established.

Her passions were family and family gatherings. She loved raising four kids and spending time with seven grandkids. She thoroughly enjoyed watching most sports, but especially football and baseball. She had the easiest smile and upbeat personality. She is best described as an exceedingly friendly, personable, warm and sincere person. Favorite, most often used words every day were 'fun' 'love' and 'perfect.' Loved the adventures of traveling abroad and within the states while Tom was active duty military. Loved being the mayor’s wife and endeared herself to many Sierra Vistans for those eight years.

In lieu of anything like flowers, request you just remember her in your prayers.

Her funeral mass will be at 10:30 am on 24 February at Saint Andrews Church followed by a private interment at the Southern Arizona Veterans Memorial Cemetery.
