Nancy Diane Darby

WEBB CITY, MO: Nancy Diane Darby, age 73, passed away Thursday afternoon, January 10, 2013 at Freeman West Hospital following an illness.

Nancy was born November 21, 1939 in Baxter Springs, KS. Her parents were Elmer Eugene and Hazel Vivian (Pendleton) Bailey.

After graduating from Baxter High School Baxter Springs, KS in 1957, she attended St John's Nursing School where she earned a registered nurse degree.
