Nancy Bryan

Funeral services for Nancy Marie (Dedic) Bryan, 88, will be held at 2:00 p.m., Tuesday, January 9, at Pomona Christian Church with Pastor Marcus Allen officiating, under the direction of Robertson-Drago Funeral Home.
Mrs. Bryan left to be with her Heavenly Father, January 4, 2024. She passed peacefully, surrounded by her family.
Nancy was born September 15, 1935 in Chicago, Illinois to Frank and Anna (Bohac) Dedic. When she was three years old, her mother died, and Nancy was raised by her father and paternal aunt, Bessie Dedic. Nancy was a 1953 graduate of Lindblom High School. During her senior year, she began her first job at Woolworth's Five-and-Dime. She worked as a service representative with Illinois Bell Telephone Company for 13 years. There, she formed lifelong friendships, and was introduced to her future husband, Bobbie Bryan. She married Bob June 29, 1957 at Chicago United Methodist Church. Bob and Nancy adopted two children, and in 1970, the family moved from Chicago to Pomona, Missouri. She discovered farm life, and learned to garden and preserve food from her mother-in-law, Sybil Bryan. Nancy paused her career to raise her children, then worked 21 years for West Plains School District, where she retired in 1999. 
Nancy was generous with her sense of humor. Her jokes and quick, sassy wit shared the gift of laughter with everyone around her. Friends and family will remember her as the life of any gathering, and as the keeper of lists, dates and details. If you couldn't remember what year someone graduated, moved or had a baby, Nancy knew. If you were one of her people, she probably had all your life events, surgeries and your last 5 addresses, all carefully recorded in her famous 'Black Book.' Nancy will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
She is survived by her husband, Bob; her daughter and three grandchildren: Leann (Garrett, Erin); Anthony Bryan; her sister Patsy Drengacz and husband, Stanley; sisters-in-law, Martha Carter, Maxine Casey and Sue Bryan; many nieces and nephews; two great-grandchildren; several 'chosen family'; and a large church family.
Nancy is reunited in Heaven, with her parents, her aunt Betty, her brother Frank, her son, Frank and her grandson, Tyler.
Visitation services will be held from 1:00 until 2:00 p.m., Tuesday, at Pomona Christian Church. Burial will be at Antioch Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully requests memorial contributions be made to Rock Garden Christian Camp in Pomona, Missouri, and may be left at or mailed to Robertson-Drago Funeral Home, 211 West Main, West Plains, MO 65775.
