Nancy Shiner

April 24, 1957 — May 14, 2024

Baxter

Nancy Ann Shiner peacefully passed away on May 14, 2024, in Baxter, Iowa, at the age of 67, in her home surrounded by all her loved ones. A memorial visitation will be held at 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 22, 2024, at Hendersons Funeral & Cremation Care in Des Moines. Immediately following her visitation her memorial service will begin at 1:00 p.m. Burial will follow at the Masonic Cemetery in Des Moines.  

She was born on April 24, 1957, in Des Moines, Iowa, to George and Genevieve Logsdon. Nancy’s will to live was strong, and she embraced life fully, creating cherished memories with her loved ones. Her heart found solace in the flickering glow of a campfire, where laughter mingled with the sweet aroma of roasting marshmallows during joyful gatherings with family and friends, that was her happy place.

 

Fondly known as the “cat lady”, she adored her fur babies Molly, Mei Mei, Rocky, Suki, Frannie, and Sam, as well as her parrot Goldie. She is survived by her siblings David (Karen) Logsdon of Bondurant, Kathy (Ted) Clark of Baxter, and Linda Smith of Baxter, and her sister-in-law Carol Shiner of Manning. Nancy was preceded in death by her husband Gregory Shiner, her parents, her sister Tina Logsdon, and her beloved pets Maggie, Patches, Frosty, Sparky, Rocky, and Ruby. 

 

Nancy graduated from Tech High in 1975, where she excelled as captain of the drill team and showcased her talent on the tennis courts. Her professional journey led her to FIS Global, culminating in a tenure that took her to Westchester, IL, before retiring and returning to Iowa in 2020, to be closer to her sisters and her brother. She loved to attend craft shows with her sisters, relishing the thrills of annual trips to Halloween Horror Nights (with her favorite Simpsons ride in tow), and basking in the camaraderie of Palm Springs rendezvous with cherished friends defined her post-retirement bliss. Her high school companions held a special place in her heart, and she reveled in exploring the world’s wonders, enriching the lives of those around her with every shared adventure.


A service to honor and celebrate Nancy’s life will be held at Henderson's Funeral & Cremation Care in Des Moines, IA on May 22, 2024. Visitation is from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. with memorial services followed.
