She worked for Comanche County Memorial Hospital for 15 years in Pediatrics as a Nurses Aide and Ward Clerk. She loved Comanche County Memorial Hospital and always referred to it as "Her" Hospital. She was a member of Salem Missionary Baptist Church and taught Sunday School and attended ladies Auxiliary until her health prevented her from attending. Nan also took great joy in volunteering at the Greiner School for the Handicapped. She was a devoted and loving mother who supported her children in everything they did. Her two best friends in the whole world were Mary Crow and Joyce Zacharias and they never failed to call each other on their birthdays. She took great pride in her state and loved watching OU Sooner Football. 

She is survived by her sons, Ellery David and Kelly Windham, both of Lawton; her daughter, Kristen Fitzpatrick and husband, Marlin, of Lawton; five grandchildren; 11 great grandchildren; her cousin, Joy Burrow and family; and a host of other family members and friends.
