Sykes; grandchildren, Brooke Davis, Kayla Squires, Victoria Davis, Josh Barnes, Kenny Barnes, Jr., Cora Barnes, Owen Shields, and Brin Craft; seventeen great grandchildren; and brother, Tony Hardin; many extended family members and friends.

     Most important in Nancy’s life was her dear family, especially her grandchildren who brought her great joy.
