Nancy K Ahner, Age 71, of Streamwood IL, passed away Monday morning, March 27th, 2017 at Central DuPage Hospital in Winfield, IL.

Nancy was born October 17th, 1945 in Stockton, IL, the daughter of the late Don and Betty King.

She was preceded in death by her Brother Reg King and Nephew Dustin King.

Family was the most important driving force in her life. Many just referred to her as “Mom” as she played that role for many. For those that she considered a part of her extended family they may as well have been blood related.

Paul Ahner from Tulsa OK

"We have many fond memories of Nancy, Gene, Mark and Lisa in days gone by – visiting state parks, July 4th in Washington DC, House on the Rock, getting lost on numerous occasions, dealing with car breakdowns and taking unplanned extended “scenic tours”. Something unexpected happened on nearly all these trips, mostly due to the antics of the “Ahner Brothers”. Nancy, being the patient, accepting, and gentle person took all of these in stride. Nancy, we will miss you !!! Paul, Donna, Paul Jr., Samantha and Holly Ahner"
