Nancy Jane (Faulkner) Thornton, 79, wife of Charles “Charlie” A. Thornton Jr., passed away on Saturday, April 13th, 2019. She was born on June 17th, 1939 in Owen County, Kentucky, daughter of the late Thomas and Evelyn (Martin) Faulkner. Nancy was a retired Social Worker with the Commonwealth of Kentucky. She was an active member of Georgetown Baptist Church, where she sang in the Women’s Choir, played in the Hand Bell Choir and enjoyed attending her Bible study group.

Visitation will be held on Thursday, April 18th, from 3 to 5pm at Georgetown Baptist Church with Nancy’s Celebration of Life Service to begin at 5pm with Pastor Alan Redditt and Pastor Tim Schindler officiating.

I first met Nancy (probably in the 1970s) on a homemaker trip to Washington DC. She immediately noticed I wasn't feeling well during the bus trip and took care of me. This motherly action and the many laughs she brought to the trip I will never forget. Prayers of comfort to the family.

My favourite memory when I mowed the front yard, she was on the phone bragging about how big her butterfly bush was. She asked me to take the mower up to the circle in the yard where the bush was and cut down the weeds. Well I cut the bush down and the weeds. She had to call her friend back and say your butterfly bush is bigger than mine now.
