Nancy Fiedler Eckerson, 76, died March 18, 2017, of brain cancer. She was preceded in death by her husband, Raymond Eckerson. She is survived by her sister, Martha Fiedler Spring and spouse Frank, of Albuquerque; her brother, Larry Fiedler and spouse Linda, of Olney, Maryland; her nephews, Joshua Fiedler and Frank A. Spring and spouse Angela; stepdaughters, Julie Eckerson and Darcy Davis and spouse Kevin, of Wichita, Kansas; four grandchildren, four great-grandchildren and many loving relatives and friends around the country.
Nancy was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and graduated from Dominican University. She earned master's degrees in dietetics and in health administration. In 1984, Nancy married Ray and the two worked as hospital administrators in the Chicago area until they moved to Los Alamos in 1994. After she retired from Los Alamos Medical Center in 2004, the two moved to Albuquerque.
Nancy joined St. Joseph on the Rio Grande Parish, where she served on the Pastoral Council and in many volunteer activities at the parish and at the Archdiocese of Santa Fe Catholic Center. She loved traveling, especially to Ireland. She also enjoyed reading, genealogy, attending bible study, teaching, and playing bridge. Nancy's mostly sweet disposition, her sense of humor and her deep gratitude for God's blessings - especially those blessings of her family and friends - remained with her all her life.
Nancy's family wishes to thank the staffs of Tres Hermanas Assisted Living Residence and Hospice de la Luz for their loving care.
