Nancy Ann Newhouse Sather was born September 20, 1933, in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota. She grew up in Mora, Minnesota where she was a cheerleader and Salutatorian of her class.
She received a scholarship to attend Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota, graduating with honors. She married Wayne R. Sather on June 19, 1955, in Kanabec, Minnesota. She was a lifelong educator having taught school in Tombstone, AZ, Chelmsford, MA and El Paso, TX. Additionally, while raising three sons (four if you include our dad) she ran a private tutoring and diagnostic practice.
She passed away on May 7, 2023, in Victoria, Texas. She was preceded by her parents, Jim and Hope Newhouse, and husband, Wayne Sather.
She is survived by sons Stephen (and wife Valeska), David (and wife Carol) and Mark (and wife Diane) and four grandchildren, Kristen, Stephanie, Madison and Andrew.
At five foot tall, everything our mom lacked in stature, she more than made up for in substance. We are lifetime beneficiaries of her dedication to education, kindness, responsibility, hard work and frugality. She instilled in us a love of animals. Mom and dad travelled the world with mom taking lots and lots of time attempting to take the perfect picture.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Wayne & Nancy Sather Endowed Scholarship at Texas Lutheran University, 1000 W. Court st, Seguin, TX 78155.
