Nancy Jane(Rich)Shrum married to James M.Shrum.
Nancy was a Wonderful Christian. A woman with great faith (Her daughter Lucille Alice(lucy)Shrum Holmes spoke of her.Lucy told that she was known to go and pray for the sick.She would shout her hair down in the old Brush Arbor Meeting's until all her hair pins fell out. When she would hear of any of her neighbors that were sick,she would wade through the snow to get to their house and help their family.Sometimes she was gone from her family two weeks at a time cooking,washing and helping until the family was well and back on their feet.her husband James M. Shrum took care of the family until she would return home. Lucy told of when she was about 8,of how much she would be missing her Mother,and how she would wait and watch for her to come home until she would see her walking through the snowy field. She would then run and meet her,grab her around her waist and hug her face to her Mothers apron.She remembered how wonderful her Mothers apron smelled to her.Nancy one day suddenly began to knit each of her children some wool socks and a little feather down mattress. She told her family that the Lord had told her that he was going to take her home but she never revieled how he told her,or what he showed her.Sometime later she passed away after she had finished making the items.Lucy was so heart broken from her Mothers death that she had to be made to go see her Mother after she passed.
