Nancy K. Hepler

August 11, 1936 — April 23, 2024


Nancy K. Hepler, 87, passed away on April 23, 2024 at home in Lampasas, Texas.  She was born on August 11, 1936, in Joliet, Illinois to James and Mary McNeil Foster.

Sneed-Carnley Funeral Chapel Lampasas is assisting locally with the cremation services and Nancy will have a graveside service provided by Murman and Wilson Funeral Home in Johnston City, Illinois at Lakeview Cemetery on Friday, May 17, 2024, at 11 am.

Nancy's family moved to Johnston City where she graduated from Johnston City High and later took classes through John A. Logan College.

Nancy married John F. Hepler Jr. in Hernando, Mississippi.  They were happily married for 52 years.  She was a member of the First Christian Church in Johnston City, a Girl Scout leader, and loved her extended family greatly.  She instigated many adventures into the great outdoors for camping trips, bird watching, and river float trips but made sure her family also went to art and natural history museums.

Nancy was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, John; her daughter, Laura; her son, John Hepler III; her sister, Jackie White and granddaughter, Sundee Barbero.

Nancy is survived by her daughter, Joni (Jerry) Barbero of Lampasas, TX; her son, Guy Hepler of Carlsbad, NM; her brothers, Jim (Faye) Foster in Tennessee and Bill (Kim) Cox in Illinois; her very special friend and sister-in-law, Mary Ray Foster as well as numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren and nieces, nephews and cousins.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial donations to the American Heart Association, American Cancer Society or St. Jude Children's Hospital.
