Nancy Ruth Huck
Nancy Huck passed away peacefully on November 2, 2017 at Oregon Health Sciences University. She was born October 1st, 1954 to Clarence Huck & Lorraine (Wemhoff) Bunt. She was born and raised in Portland, Oregon, the middle child of five girls, graduating from Alameda Elementary and Grant High Schools.
Nancy was a true feminist of the 1970s while attending the University of Oregon. Originally pursuing a degree in Women's Studies, she discovered her love for helping and healing. She graduated from Mt. Hood Community College and Walla Walla University with a Bachelors degree in Nursing. She later earned her Masters Degree as a Nurse Practitioner at the University of Portland.
Adventist Medical Center was Nancy's professional home for thirty-seven years, working in cardiac rehabilitation, in the critical and pulmonary care units and case management. She has always been the compassionate care giver for family and friends, so many have been comforted and encouraged by her words and deeds.
Nancy enjoyed being a mother, and was very active in supporting her son's academic endeavors. She retired in May 2017 with ambitions to travel across the country and beyond. The island of Kauai was her nearly-annual retreat where she hosted many family members and friends.
Nancy was preceded in death by her father Clarence, her mother, Lorraine and her sister, Patricia Primavera. She is survived by her son, Nathan Boardman, her sisters: Susan (Rob) Lowery, Judy (Jim) Gallucci, and Shirley Warren.
A Memorial Celebration will be held at Calaroga Terrace, 1400 NE 2nd Ave, Portland, 97232 on Saturday, November 18, 2017 at 2:00 pm.
