Nancy Ann Cook Oberforcher, born Jan.10,1936, a lifelong Catholic and Leavenworth resident passed away at her home, surrounded by her loved ones on December 10, 2020.

Nancy is survived by her four children, Nancy Boatright, Mark Oberforcher (Leavenworth, KS) Susan Sheffield (Kansas City, MO) Lynn Nemeth (Gilbert, AZ) and grandchildren, Jessica (dec), Tony and Sarah Boatright, Kyle Bailey, Erica Nemeth, Nicole Sheffield, Kayla Oberforcher and great-grandchild, Freyja Shafer; the true loves of her life! Brother, Richard Cook (Leavenworth, KS)
Nancy was married to Anthony (Tony) Oberforcher in 1956 (dec). Her Mother was Florence Miller Cook (dec) and Father, Edward Cook Sr. (dec). Brother, Edward Cook Jr. (dec)

Nancy had a 33-year long career working as a Personnel Clerk in the Office of the Adjutant General at Ft. Leavenworth, KS. She loved working for the Catholic School System supporting the Greenway Auction fundraiser, volunteering, soliciting donations and anything else to help promote and foster Catholic education. She graduated from Immaculata High School in 1956.

If you were to have asked Nancy what she enjoyed the most, she would say cooking for anyone that was hungry and going to the casino with her daughter Nancy. She always tried to help others by volunteering or donating. She made sure her kids and grandkids were comfortable and happy with a smile and full belly. Her spirit truly shined at Christmas, her favorite time of the year. A joy that would brighten anyone’s heart.

Her strong faith in God, her altruistic nature, and love for her children and grandchildren is what grounded her in life. It’s a love that will be missed by everyone she met.

Her wings were ready, our hearts were not.. (unknown)

A Catholic Mass will be held in her honor Tuesday, December 15th, 2020 at 10:30 am, St. Joseph’s Church, Leavenworth, KS, with Fr. Glenn Snow, O.Carm., officiating. Graveside services will be held at a later date.

Donations in her memory, please send to her favorite place of worship, St. Joseph’s Church, Leavenworth, KS.

Arrangements have been entrusted to R. L. Leintz Funeral Home.
