Nancy M. Orndorff, 85, of Washington, passed away at 4:11am Sunday, September 6, 2020 at Apostolic Christian Restmor in Morton.
Nancy was born June 21, 1935 in Shelby County to the late Roy and Carmel Clifton Furr. She married William D. Reed on November 29, 1953, and they had 3 children together. She later married Gerald R. “Jerry” Orndorff on December 2, 1972; he preceded her in death in 2000.
Surviving are her children, Cindy (Rick) Lynch of Matthews, NC, Tana (Rod) Pudik and Troy (Kim) Reed, both of Washington; grandchildren, Leanne (Dave) Edwards, Keri Anne (Adam) Shinn, Tara Stepzinski, Hannah (Scott) Simpson, Jenna (Jesse) Magnuson, Brandi Pudik, and Cassie, Brock, and Brody Reed; great-grandchildren, Kaylie Davis, Aubrey Edwards, Brady Stepzinski, David Edwards, Jax Shinn, Kyra Stepzinski, Cash Monk, Rachel Magnuson, and Penelope and Guinevere Monk; and great-great-grandchildren, Ebin and Willow Webb; her sister, Bonnie Clark of Shelbyville; and step-son Tony Albertson and step-grandson Jordon Albertson.
She was also preceded in death by a brother, Arnold Furr.
Nancy worked for Illinois Central College for nearly 35 years, during which she performed multiple positions until her retirement in 2002. She was an active member of her church and devoted countless hours to volunteer work throughout the community, including Side By Side, a singing group focused on providing outreach to the elderly. Her greatest joy, however, came from her role as a mother, grandmother, and friend. She will be dearly missed by the many people whose lives were blessed by hers.
