Nancy Isabelle (Mueller) Eswine was born in Richmond, Minnesota to Marcellus and Clara (Jungels) Mueller.  She graduated from Rocori High School in 1979.  Nancy worked at Kmart, Stearns Manufacturing and then was a stay at home mother until her daughter, Stephanie, was in middle school at which point she took a position at Coldspring.  After 14 years at Coldspring, Nancy retired this past fall.  Anyone who knew Nancy, knows that she always took pride in all that she did.  In her free time, she enjoyed spending time with her family and friends, going up north to her cabin, as well as taking trips to the casino.  Throughout her life, she has been best known for her smile and strong faith.  Nancy was a devoted wife, mother, sister and friend.  She always looked to help others and inspired people by sharing the story of her journey.  Nancy had wished to volunteer at the hospital when she completed her cancer treatments.  Unfortunately, Nancy was called home before she was able to fulfill this wish.  However, we know that she will still continue to help others, although it may be in a different way.  Her enduring smile will live on, not only in our memories but also through the care that we show to one another.  Sincere thanks to Coborn’s Cancer Center, St. Cloud Hospital, CentraCare Hospice, and Quiet Oaks Hospice House.  A special thank you to all who sent thoughts and prayers to Nancy and her family.

She is survived by her husband, Michael; daughter, Stephanie; mother, Clara; siblings, Sharon (Lloyd) Willenbring, Tom (Jane Gottwald), Marvin (Connie), Judy, Jim, Don, Wendy (Art) Braegelmann; mother-in-law, Florence Eswine; in-laws, Gerry (Sandy), Dennis (Linda), Janet (Mike) Thompson, Margaret (Dennis) Little, William (Virgnia), David (Kathleen), Dorothy (Mike) Stupka, and Sandy (Dean) Steffen; and many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her father, Marcellus; 3 infant brothers; father-in-law, William Eswine and an infant niece.
