Nancy Maynar

Nancy Maynard passed away on March 8 in Spokane, Washington. Nancy was a resident of Orcas Island for the last twenty five years.

Nancy is survived by her husband Bob Maynard, two daughters, Katy Maynard and Suzy Maynard, son-in-law Steve Box, granddaughter Jessica Box and grandson Martin Box.

Nancy was born in Long Beach, California on October 18, 1926. She lived in many places in California in her childhood but called Yosemite National Park home as that is where her grandparents lived, and later where she was married and raised her family. She also lived in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Wyoming and Virginia.

Nancy and Bobs’ sixty-fifth wedding anniversary was in September of 2013 on Orcas, and many close friends came from near and far. The family would like to consider that her memorial as she so enjoyed the celebration.

Nancy’s husband Bob said, “Of all of Nancy’s many qualities and accomplishments, her love of life, her family, her photography, and her writing aren’t the only things that stand out. It is who Nancy was as a person that made her most unique.”

She will be missed.
