Nancy (Shore) Hicks

July 18, 1957 — October 17, 2023

Coon Rapids

Preceded in death by her father David Shore. Survived by her mother Helen Shore of Coon Rapids, her daughter Sara Eppard (Alissa) of Detroit Lakes, her son Ben Garbacz (Jessica) of Stacy, and her three grandchildren whom she loved with all her heart, Landon, Olivia, and Lincoln. Nancy started her professional career working in administration and NSP, and after some time, transitioned into administration in curriculum within the St. Francis ISD# 15, and Anoka-Hennepin ISD# 11, where she retired from. She got to travel and live in some beautiful places, from as north as Coty, Wyoming, to as south as Bandera, TX, where she ended her travels. She had made the move back home to MN in July to be closer to family and friends. Although it wasn't enough time, it was just what she needed. Nancy made friends wherever he went. She passed away peacefully on October 17th, 2023, surrounded by so much love. She has left such an imprint on every single person that encountered her; whether she made you laugh by her jokes and sarcastic humor or made you feel supported by having your back and being right by your side. She was so strong and fierce, a fighter and a lover. She had such a big personality. She will be missed tremendously by all who crossed paths with her, but never forgotten. A private service will be held at Linwood Covenant Church (6565 Viking Blvd NE, Wyoming, MN 55092) for immediate family only on November 2nd, 2023. Please join us after, as we celebrate the life of Nancy at The Tavern (10950 Club West Pkwy #280, Blaine, MN 55449) from 3:00PM to 7:00PM. Let us share stories and laugh. Let's keep her spirit alive!
