Obituary of Nancy Richerson Zeilman
Nancy Richerson Zeilman (nee Hamilton), 67, went on to be with the Lord on Thursday, January 27, 2022, after fighting a courageous battle with cancer. She was surrounded by her loving husband, children, and grandchildren. She was born the daughter of the late Garfield and Alma Hamilton and lived most of her life in Union, KY.
Nancy was a devoted wife, mother, and mawmaw. Her family was the heart of her home, and she had a laugh that would make anyone smile.

She was well known for being an accomplished pianist and played and sang at numerous churches and weddings throughout the years.

She is also survived by her step-son, Bill Zeilman, step-daughter Jennifer Schultze, sister, Betty Doolin (Eugene) and brother Glenn Hamilton (Brenda). Also missing “mawmaw” will be her five grandchildren, Lucas, Caleb, Eli, Jasper, and Juniper and her five step-grandchildren.
