NANCY CROUSE McALLISTER, age 74, passed away Thursday, April 9, 2020 at her home.

Nancy loved her family, friends and co-workers. She was a funny lady who enjoyed cooking – she loved brown beans and cornbread; and the kids loved her frozen pot pies off the bus. Her love, laughter, sense of humor, and the fact she was a tough old bird - will be remembered forever.

She was preceded in death by her husband, John McAllister; parents, Robert and Doshia Crouse; sister, Betty Trivett; brothers, Ray, Bud, Roy, Jack, Earl and Buford Crouse; and brothers-in-law, Ray Sproils and Garnett Hinchey.
