Nancy Jean
Van De Loo

Nancy Van De Loo, 68, of Howards Grove, passed away on Wednesday, January 4, 2018 at HarborChase of Shorewood after a courageous battle with brain cancer. She was born March 10, 1949 in Sheboygan Falls to Helmuth and Anne (Grohskopf) Gamb. On September 19, 1970 Nancy was united in marriage to Gilbert VanDeLoo at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Sheboygan Falls.

Nancy worked at Kohler Company as a Technical Writer until she became a mother. She then became a stay-at-home mother and business owner of Nancy’s Mini Shoppe. She had a love for family and antiques. Nancy enjoyed flower arranging, craft projects, trips to the casino, cooking and making doll house miniatures, but her greatest joy was spending time with her grandchildren.

Nancy is survived by her daughter Kelly Malzewski of Oak Creek, her grandchildren Ashlyn and Trevor Malzewski, sister Patricia Harper; sisters-in-law Elaine Dunisch, Carol Moeller, Nancy Van De Loo and Marlee Gamb, also by nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
