The couple was united in marriage on May 10, 1959 in Reno, Nevada. He was in the Navy and they moved to California. Nancy taught in the Long Beach area until the arrival of their only son, George. Later, Nancy and NJ move to Sedan, Kansas. She was a well-respected teacher in Sedan and Caney where they later made their home.
