Nancy graduated from Nathan Hale High School in 1974. She went on to work at Lowrance Electronics, where she met the love of her life, Kim Alan Mitchell, whom she married on March, 5 1976. They were pranksters in crime for sure, when Nancy was pregnant, he would overhead page “Chubet Mitchell” whenever he got the chance while at work. After Kim accidentally made her lose her job at Lowrance Electronics, she went on to work for Dollar General then Target where she left in 2016 to move to Zanesville, OH to be near her son and granddaughter. Her son, Alan, whom carried on with the pranks of his parents even at a very young age. Around the age of 4, while Nancy was preparing for a party, he hid himself under the microwave cart. As Nancy completed some deviled eggs and would go to make more, he would sneak out and take a few, this went on a couple of times until Nancy decided to step back and watch the deviled eggs, at which time he was caught stealing them.
