She attended Taylor School in Sheridan until the age of 10, when she moved to California with her mom after her parents’ divorce. When Nancy was 14 her mom married the man that would become a father to her, Ed Baird. She would later name her eldest son after him. She graduated from Alhambra High School In 1960.

She married Walt Hoeser and to this union her eldest son Ed was born. They were later divorced and on September 10, 1966 she married the love of her life, Dean Longress. They welcomed daughter Julie in 1968 and son Jack in 1970. In 1988 they moved to Sheridan, WY where Nancy started her “second” banking career at First Interstate Bank, until her retirement in 2006. After Dean’s passing in 1998, Nancy enjoyed traveling with her dear friends, Carla While and Nancy Huckfeldt. Nancy also enjoyed playing pickle ball and bowling. Nancy had a deep faith in God. We take comfort knowing that she is with her Savior Jesus Christ, and reunited with her husband Dean. We rejoice knowing that we will see her again one day in our Heavenly home.
