Nancy Hunter Henslee Rimer 1939 ~ 2010 Nancy Hunter Henslee Rimer died Friday, March 12, 2010 in Clermont, Florida after a courageous battle with Pulmonary Fibrosis.
Nancy was born June 29, 1939 in Ogden, Utah, to Elton Glenn and Jane (Jennie) Taylor Hunter. Nancy grew up at the family home on Van Buren Avenue in Ogden, and graduated from Ogden High School in 1957. After graduation, Nancy attended Weber College and began working for the U.S. Government at Hill Air Force Base. There she met and married Joseph (Joe) M. Henslee on August 13, 1959. Nancy continued to work at Hill until 1962 when the couple first moved to Salt Lake City, and then later to Columbia, South Carolina. Nancy raised three children, and was a homemaker for many years, but was also very involved in a variety of work activities and personal interests during that time.
Nancy loved to sew, making dresses, quilts and costumes for family, friends, and church members. She loved a host of other arts and crafts, and worked at the Dutch Door in Columbia where she shared that love and skill with others. As an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, she fulfilled various callings in the Relief Society and Primary, as well as the Family History Center. Nancy also had a musical gift, and played the piano and organ beautifully. She shared her love of music with her children and grandchildren, and served several musical callings within her church.
She also had a lifelong interest in history and classic literature. What Nancy enjoyed most was spending time with her children and grandchildren, and was always so very proud of their accomplishments. Nancy returned to school at the University of South Carolina, earning her BA in Anthropology in 1983. She and Joe were divorced in 1983, and she returned to work at the Judge Advocate General (JAG) Office at Fort Jackson for several years.
After her retirement from the federal government, she continued her service to others, working as a Recreation / Activity Therapist at the Dowdy-Gardner and Brian Centers in Columbia. She married Morgan Rimer in Lexington, SC on October 14, 1995. After Morgan's death in October 2001, she continued to work until her retirement from the Brian Center in 2008.
Her most recent adventure was her move to Palm Krest Manor in Haines City, Florida, where she resumed her skills learned as an activity therapist, providing comfort and counseling to the other residents. She loved her time there, and was very fond of Brooke, Mary, and the entire staff. She loved the residents, and they adored her.
She is survived by her three children, Teresa Henslee-Downer (Bruce) - Groveland, FL; Joey Henslee (Wendy) - Alpharetta, GA; Glynnis Smith (fiancÚ Philip) - Irmo, SC; five grandchildren, Ashley Dale and Samuel Henslee, Chase and Caleigh Smith, and Carolina Harris, and her brother, Robert Hunter (Carolyn) -Salt Lake City, UT. She is preceded in death by her parents, brother Glen, and sister Joyce Clark.
Services will be held on Wednesday, March 17th at 11:00 a.m. at Leavitt's Mortuary, 836 36th Street in Ogden, Utah. Interment will be at Leavitt's Aultorest Memorial Park, where she will be laid to rest beside her parents and brother.
The family wishes to express their gratitude to the staff at the Heart of Florida Regional Medical Center for their dedication and compassion to Nancy and her family. The family also wishes to thank the Mike Conley Hospice House for their love, care and service. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you consider a donation to Cornerstone Hospice - Mike Conley Hospice House (Clermont, FL) on behalf of Nancy Rimer.
