She attended Morningside College in Sioux City, Iowa. On May 27, 1972, she was married to Richard Charles Wohlenhaus in St. Charles, Iowa. Nancy lived in many places in the state of Iowa while growing up as her father served numerous Methodist churches throughout Iowa.

Once her children were older, Nancy served as a special education aide for the Griswold and Cumberland-Anita-Massena school districts. Nancy was an accomplished pianist, organist, and piano teacher.

Among the churches she served as an organist were St. John’s United Church of Christ, the Atlantic United Church of Christ, and St. Peter’s United Church of Christ. Several of her piano students have gone on to have successful careers in music. Nancy was a member of the Tuesday Music Club, the National Federation of Music Clubs, and the St. John’s United Church of Christ Women’s Fellowship. She enjoyed performing and teaching music, working with children, and spending time with her family and friends.
