(December 10, 1927 – April 21, 2021)
Nancy Sue Connor Armstrong resident of Comanche for more than eight decades passed away peacefully on April 21, 2021 at the age of 93.
Born on December 10, 1927 to Joseph and Pauline Lucas Connor in McKinney, Texas, Nancy and her family moved to Comanche when she was in high school. She graduated from Comanche High School in 1945 and on August 19, 1949 married Richard C Armstrong. She spent most of her life in Comanche working at the Courthouse, co-owning Jeans Hardware and raising her four sons. Her Christian life was centered around being a loving, caring, devoted wife, mother and grandmother. Her support of every family activity included the love and care that she gave her son Mike. She devoted 68 years to his care and development. She enjoyed having everyone together for Thanksgiving and watching Texas A&M football. On any given day, she could be found either in the kitchen, a ballfield or a rodeo arena. She supported her family in all their adventures through sports and rodeo; she was their biggest cheerleader. Nancy loved her community, church and providing countless volunteer services.
