Nancy Jean Dell, 82, of Russellville, a beloved mother, grandmother and great grandmother, was called home Monday April 10, 2023. Following a private family committal in the new Chapel of Light, cremation arrangements were under the direction of the J. Herman Humphrey Dignity Cremation Center.
Nancy was born June 17, 1940, in Piqua, Ohio, to Glen and Ellen (Horner) Smith. She married Forest “Bud” Dell in August 1970 in Lake Elsinore, California.
Nancy was preceded in death by her parents, and her husband of 53 years, “Bud.” She is survived by her five children, nine grandchildren, and several great grandchildren.
Faith and family were the two passions of Nancy’s life. She was a homemaker dedicated to taking care of her husband, children, and grandchildren as their family grew. Many memories have been made around dinner tables, family traditions, and holiday gatherings. Whether her home was filled with the delicious aroma of a homestyle meal or the sound of her many canine companions, it always offered a comfortable setting for family and friends to cherish.
Nancy held a strong and committed value toward her faith in God and the care of His church. She was a dedicated member of the Family Worship Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where she served faithfully on the media ministry team. God’s Word held great meaning in her heart and walking faithfully with the Lord Jesus gave her life the richest and deepest meaning.
