Nancy was born in Topeka, Kansas on September 24, 1937 and she was raised in southern California. She met Edgar William Kerr in 1955 while he was stationed in California and after marrying, they moved to his home town of Homer City, PA, eventually moving to Johnstown, PA, where she raised her family. Nancy is preceded in death by her husband of 55 years, Edgar William (Bill) Kerr, her mother Frances Liles, her father Robert Liles, her sister Carol Liles, her brother Lt. Col. Robert Liles Jr., her sister-in-law Mary Kerr, and her grandson Bradley Stofko.

Nancy originally worked as a secretary for the US Navy and then for the Penn Traffic Dept. Store followed by Hess’s Dept. Store. She elected to make a career change at 55 and went for schooling to become a certified nursing assistant. She worked as a CNA at Arbutus Park Manor, where she retired in 2011. Nancy was a member of the Westmont United Methodist Church. In her spare time, she enjoyed baking (making the best chocolate chip cookies, cinnamon rolls, and pumpkin pies…ever), knitting and crocheting. She enjoyed making prayer shawls for the church to help comfort people in their time of need. She enjoyed making hats and sweaters for children around the world and beds for animals in need.
