Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the care of the Palmer Marler Funeral Home, Cushing, with a Mass of Christian Burial to be held at 10  a.m., Wednesday in the St.’s Peter and Paul Catholic Church, Cushing.  Burial will follow in the St. Leo Cemetery.

Nancy and Ron made their first home in Wichita but also lived in California, Sapulpa, Stillwater and Carney before moving to Cushing in 1997. While they lived in Stillwater Nancy and Ron owned and operated the Simple Simon’s Pizza for several years. After moving to Cushing, Nancy worked at as a waitress at the Homestead and worked in food management at the Cimarron Correctional Facility in Cushing before retiring in early 2013.
