Mrs. Will E. Nance was born at Camden, Arkansas, November 24, 1874,
and moved to Texas with her parents when seven years old. In 1896 she
was married to Will E. Nance at Valley Springs in Llano county. To this

Mrs. Nance united with the Methodist Church when 16 years old and has
lived a consistent Christian life. She was always interested in looking
after those in need.
She spent practically all her life in the Hill Country and she and her
husband were ranch people until overcome by ill health. She has lived
in Junction at different times and just before her death asked that she
be brought here in order that she might die in Junction. She had been
here only a few days when death relieved her of her suffering. Her
friends and neighbors testify that she was a patient sufferer during
the last months of her life. She is gone but her influence will continue
to live in the heart and lives of those with whom she came in contact.
