Nancy was born on February 23, 1934 to Cyril and Lura Pope in Coffeyville, KS. When she was 14, her family moved to the Kansas City area where she graduated from North Kansas City High School. On February 19, 1955 she married Howard Lee and from this marriage they had two children. Nancy was a member of the First Christian Church of North Kansas City for over 70 years. She enjoyed participating in many of the church activities and committees, including the vocal and handbell choirs and baking dozens of cakes for the Micah Ministry.

The two most important things in her life were her family and her church.
