There she met and married the great love of her life, Eddie Gene Cash on December 21, 1976. Together they shared 36 years of marriage, and she devoted her life to her home and family. Working as the assistant dietician at the Springtown Administration Building for several years allowed her to take an active role in the lives of her children. Accompanied by her husband, they drove and sat through rain, sleet, and snow to be able to cheer on their children and local school. Most weekends were spent as a family, camping, riding motorcycles, skiing on the lake, or visiting with grandparents. Later she spent her leisure time working in her yard, planting flowers and fruit trees or just sitting on her porch in the sun. Her greatest thrill was shopping with her friends, garage selling and auctioning with her husband by her side. Nancy was a member of Hill Top Baptist Church.

She was preceded in death by her Savior, Jesus Christ; her mother, Eva Shoemake; father, Garland Self; and daughter, Treva Phillips, as well as many other dear family members and friends.
