Nancy Trunnell Kough

August 25, 2014

Nancy Trunnell Kough passed away quietly on Sunday, August 24, 2014 at Columbia Montour Home Hospice at Maria Hall Danville PA.  She was born October 17, 1920 in Normal, IL, the daughter of the late Helen Selby Trunnell and Walter Ellis Trunnell. 

She was preceded in death by her husband, Dr. Robert H. Kough in 2003.

Nancy led a full life, and was an accomplished artist in her younger days.  A member of the PA Guild of Craftsmen for many years, she excelled at oil painting, copper enameling, silver smithing, and was an excellent seamstress.  She was also an incredible cook, and many people in Danville should remember her tasty red and green pepper jelly that she made in her kitchen from her homegrown peppers.  Her greatest love, however, was teaching.  As she had just two years of college at Brigham Young University as a young girl, at the age of 47, she decided to go back to school and complete her education.  She attended Bloomsburg University, transferred her credits back to BYU, and in 1973, flew to Provo and walked with her class at the age of 51, receiving her degree in Special Education.  She then proceeded to teach in the Millville School District for 13 years before retiring.  Nancy always said that those were the best years of her life, and many of her students kept in touch with her well into their adult lives. 

She is survived by a daughter, Elizabeth (Libby) T. Beiler and son-in-law Duncan C. Beiler of Milton PA; three grandchildren; Joshua, Madeleine (both of New York City NY) and Soren Beiler, Danville PA and one great grandson, Finnegan Kip DeRensis.  Also surviving are four nieces and two nephews in Utah and Tennessee.  She was preceded in death by her brother, Jack B. Trunnell in 1984. 

The family would like to extend its sincere thanks and gratitude to the staff at the Columbia-Montour Hospice program at Maria Hall in Danville for their outstanding care and compassion, and also to her personal caregivers who enabled Nancy to live at home for many years.

At Nancy's request, there will be no viewing.  A private graveside service will be held for immediate family. 

Contributions in Nancy's memory may be made to the Columbia Montour Home Hospice 410 Glenn Avenue Suite 200 Bloomsburg PA  17815.
