Hannah "Nancy" J. Crisman, of Portage, was born on September 3rd, 1920, passed away on May 20th, 2019, in the loving home of her only daughter Gwendolyn Clapp, at the age of 98.

Nancy was born in Scotland and came to the U.S. at the age of three. She was preceded in death by her loving husband of over 25 years Arthur Crisman and her first husband and father to Gwen, Burton Johnston, her parents; William and Hannah Cunningham, as well as her two brothers; Archibald and William Cunningham, and her only sister; Mary "Mae" Kemeny and caring son-in-law Dale V. Clapp. Nancy was an avid bowler in her day as well as an incredible chef and cook. Her apple and cherry pies were a particular specialty, especially around the holidays. She also loved to cook and volunteer her skills at the American Legion, Post 260 & 100, and she was active with "War Mothers" and "Women's Auxiliary". She cared deeply about our veterans and was especially fond and giving toward local animal shelters and her two dogs Rowdy and Roxy!

(Rebecca) Clapp, Kelly (Scott) Hutchins, Tara Villarreal and Cara (Cory) Grinnell, Jake Clapp and Keighly Clapp. As well as her special niece Mary "Betty" (Donald) Widelski.
