Nancy went peacefully to join her angels on October 29, 2022 surrounded by the love of her children and grandchildren.
Nancy Dolores Hillis was born June 14, 1959 in San Antonio, Texas to Claude Merritt and Margaret Merritt. At just 2 pounds she was born to be a fighter, thriving and scrapping through anything life dealt her.
Nancy grew up in Corpus Christi, TX. She was part of a blended and blessed family to include 4 brothers and 7 sisters. Her greatest joy came when she welcomed her beautiful daughter, Dixie, that she shared with Terry Hillis and given another blessing when she welcomed her handsome son, Dustin, with Gary Meyer.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Claude and Margaret Merritt; her brothers, Gary Wayne and Dickie; her sisters, Suzie and Linda; and her first husband, Terry Hillis.
She leaves behind to carry on her memory, her daughter, Dixie (Les) Sloan; son, Dustin (Kasie) Meyer; her grandchildren, Keirsten, Karah, Cody, Dixon and Kimber; sisters, Claudia, Cindy, Gaylin, Joy, and Carla; brothers, Butch and Glen; and several nieces and nephews and many friends she counted as family.
Nancy never needed much to be happy. A good fishing spot and a cold beer in her hand. Being surrounded by her brothers and sisters sharing stories and laughter that will live on through the next generation. Watching her kids, nieces and nephews make a mudslide in the Nueces River. A few good dances and dance partners on a Saturday night. One of her favorite past times was traveling across the country with her bowling buddies. She found happiness in the simplest things.
Visitation with family will begin at 2:00PM on November 2, 2022 at Sawyer George Funeral Home, with the funeral service to begin at 3:00PM. Services will conclude at that time.
