Nancy Lynn Vosburg, 79, passed away on June 24, 2022 from complications arising from Covid-19.
Nancy was born December 14, 1942 in Charleston, West Virginia to William and Clementine (nee’ Crookshank) Bias.
She graduated from Lewiston-Porter High School in Lewiston, New York at the age of 17. She attended West Virginia Institute of Technology in Montgomery, West Virginia and Marshall University in Huntington, West Virginia. Later she headed west and moved to California for 15 years before returning to her childhood home of New York. There she lived in Niagara Falls for 37 years until 2017 when she traded in the cold winters of New York for the sun and warmth of Florida.
Prior to her retirement, she worked for industrial paint manufacturer, Robisonite, in North Tonawanda, New York as an invoicer and bookkeeper.
Nancy’s true passions were her dogs and horses. She was an avid horse lover and owned many throughout her lifetime. She rode both Western and English equitation and won MANY blue ribbons during her competitive career. Of all the horses she owned, Nancy was most proud of her Champion Arabian, “The Agitator” (Right Photo: Nancy riding “The Agitator”).
To know Nancy was to know the life of the party. Her friend LouAnn described her as feisty, lively, determined and courageous. During their days as roommates, LouAnn remembers how Nancy loved Van Halen and football. The night Eddie van Halen died they stayed awake until 3AM listening to songs and sharing the memories attached to each one. On football days Nancy was electric. The days were spent with French bread pizza, wings and of course margaritas. Though she enjoyed the sport, she absolutely loved the Buffalo Bills most of all and remained a loyal fan, even getting a “Sunday ticket” to continue to see their games while living in Florida. Another friend, Linda, called Nancy a “hoot” and that if you wanted to have a good time you would include her in your adventure. Her adventurous personality manifested itself at a young age. Her Aunt Patty remembers 5 year old Nancy reenacting the ‘speaking in tongues’ which she witnessed at her grandparents’ church. Patty and Nancy were caught running, flailing their arms and shouting in tongues by Patty’s mother. That put an end to their childhood church services. Her friend Sarah will remember her storytelling abilities. Nancy had a way of recounting her many adventures. Her words painted so vividly that one could imagine being in the moment. Most of all, Sarah will remember the warmth of Nancy’s smile and laugh and how grateful she was to be in her life. As a parent no one will hold stronger memories of you than that of a child. Nancy’s daughter, Jennifer remembers her mother as someone who put the needs of others before her own. Nancy was always there to support and sacrifice for her family. She will be remembered for her boldness and persistence. Where others live their lives cautiously and reserved, Nancy had the habit of running toward the action. She was someone you would want for you in your corner.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Kimpton Jay Vosburg.
Those that remain to cherish her memories are her son, Eric Scott Thomas; daughter, Jennifer Robin Gruber; aunt, Patty Huddleston Cooper and the many friends she made along the way.

The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.
Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
