Nancy Davis Bone of Burnsville, Minnesota | 1942 - 2020 | Obituary
December 28, 1942 - May 07, 2020
Nancy D。 Bone, age 77, of Burnsville, MN and of Indio, CA, died peacefully after a very brief and aggressive attack by COVID-19。 She died on May 7, 2020 at The University of Minnesota Hospital, graciously with her son by her side for the last minutes of her life。
Nancy was born on December 28, 1942 to Taylor and Myrtice Davis in Durham, North Carolina. She was preceded in death by both parents and her daughter, Betsy. Nancy is survived by her son, Brian Bone, daughter-in-law, Jenni Klotz, and her most beloved grandson, Isaac Bone. Her brother, Jerry Davis (Marsha), dear friend, Joyce Vick, and nephew, Greg reside in North Carolina. She is also survived by many friends.
She grew up in Durham, North Carolina, earning her Bachelor’s Degree from UNC. She moved to Burnsville, Minnesota in 1969 and raised two children there. Nancy worked for many years at the VA Medical Center and ended her career doing medical research at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester.
Nancy was spirited, strong-willed, independent, and passionate. She lived simply, but enthusiastically, pursuing her interests in hiking, mushrooming, rock collecting, landscaping, art, classical music, nature, and travel. The bigger the challenge, the better! 17-mile hikes, MS-150 bike rides, transforming an entire backyard, commuting daily to Rochester for work, driving alone across the country each autumn to her beloved California home, hiking to the High Points of many states; these were all things that demonstrated her independence and sense of adventure! She traveled all over the world, hiking through our National Parks, Spain, England, France, Italy, Peru, Canada, Nepal, New Zealand, Australia, and India … often collecting rocks along the way! She had a special love for hiking in the Palm Springs, CA area with her group of fellow adventurers.
There was nothing she enjoyed more though, than her one-and-only grandson, Isaac. When he was born in 2007, her world was complete. They shard a very special bond, spending lots of time together - just the two of them. She never missed a baseball game, basketball game, cross country meet, band concert, Halloween parade, or piano recital of his! They had their special routines and activities that will always be cherished.
