Nancy Bartlett of Wooster, Ohio, passed away on April 4th, at Ohio Lifecare Hospice in Wooster. Nancy was born on May 30, 1936, and lived to be 82 years old. She was the only child of John and Grace (Armstrong) Winkler of Canal Road. She grew up on Canal Road in a house her father built. She loved the outdoors, enjoyed many trips to the western states, and had many adventures in and around Wayne County, the place she always called home.

After graduation from Wooster High School in 1954, she attended and graduated from Muskingum University. She returned to Wooster to become a physical education teacher at Wooster Middle School and taught at the Franklin Township Elementary School. In 1961 she married K. F. Bartlett at the Chapel of the Transfiguration in Moose, Wyoming.

She earned a Masters Degree in Physical Education from Michigan State University and then became the Chairman of the Physical Education Department for a public school near Lansing, Michigan. Two years later, she and her husband moved to Strongsville, Ohio. After the birth of their first son, Bryan, they moved to Washington Court House and had a second son, Jeffrey. Nancy taught in the Washington Court House School system and was an active member of the First Presbyterian Church where she became a Deacon.

She and her husband moved back to Wooster after raising their sons and lived in the house on Canal Road where she grew up. Nancy enjoyed fifteen winters at the Tip-o-Texas Resort in Pharr, Texas, where she visited with friends and family and spent time in the sewing room. Nancy and her husband eventually moved to Danbury Senior Living of Wooster. She attended the 1st Presbyterian Church and enjoyed Bible study at Grace Church. She loved bird watching, quilting, lunches with her Wooster Township classmates, and taking adventurous walks.

Nancy was preceded in death by her parents, John and Grace (Armstrong) Winker. She is survived by her husband of 57 years, Dr. K. F. Bartlett; her son, Colonel Bryan Cy Bartlett, U.S. Air Force, retired, his wife Amy Bartlett and their daughters Grace and Faith Bartlett of Reston, Virginia; granddaughter Cloe Bartlett of Tampa, Florida; son Major Jeffrey Bartlett, U.S. Air Force, retired, and his wife Melissa of Kapolei, Hawaii; granddaughter Sierra Landacre, her husband Steven Landacre, and their daughter Abygale and son Colt, of Dublin, Ohio.

I wish to send my condolences to the family of Nancy (Winkler) Bartlett. I learned to know her, when she visited Smithville Historical Society. We share the same ancestor (Lorenzo Lawrence Winkler & Fannie Payne. I was hostess in the John Winkler Spring House, when we met. As we discussed the Spring House, we came to find out that we were distantly related. She was a lovely lady and I am sure will be sadly missed by all of you. If any of the family is into doing genealogy, as am I, you can contact me at
Sincerely, Anita Rennecker
