Nancy L. Albert, 57, of Green Springs, died Tuesday, December 6, 2011 in Elmwood Healthcare Center, Green Springs, after a lengthy illness.


Nancy was born on April 8, 1954 in Sandusky. She graduated from Sandusky High School in 1972 and Bowling Green State University in 1977. She was a member of Zion Lutheran Church, Sandusky.


She was employed as a speech therapist at the Erie Care Center in Sandusky for 3 years, until her condition made work difficult. Even though her illness consumed a great part of her life, Nancy overcame many obstacles, and was always determined, cheerful, and optimistic.


Nancy is survived by her sister, Susan (Bruce) Hazelwood, Brenham, TX; two nieces, Erin (Jason) O’Neal and Kelly (Woo) Han; and aunts, uncles, and cousins.


She was preceded in death by her parents, Edward J. Albert and Shirley A. Albert; and a step-mother, Susan J. Ziemke-Albert.


There will be no visitation. A memorial service will be held at 1 P.M. Tuesday, December 13, 2011 at Groff Funeral Homes & Crematory, 1607 E. Perkins Ave., Sandusky. The Rev. John Mawhirter will officiate.


Private burial will be later in Meadow Green Memorial Park, Huron.
