Nancy J. Boldt passed from this life on December 2, 2017, at the age of 86, in Helena MT where she had resided since 2013.
Nancy was born August 25, 1931 to immigrant parents, Conrad and Elizabeth Achziger, in Fort Collins, CO. She was raised by her dear sister, Leah (Lee), after her mother died young. While working as a soda jerk during the 1940’s, she met the love of her life, Charles (Chuck) E. Boldt, after he returned from Army service in Japan. They were married September 3, 1950 and began their life together, transferring frequently for Chuck’s work with the U.S. Forest Service. During those years, they raised their family of four girls: Pam, Stephanie, Penny and Lori, and ultimately landed in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota where Nancy would remain for over 40 years.
Nancy was preceded in death by her husband, Chuck, her daughter, Pam, her two sisters, eight brothers, and her parents. She was Grandma to nine grandkids, and 13 great-grandchildren.
Nancy will be laid to rest this summer in South Dakota at the Black Hills VA National Cemetery alongside Chuck.
