Nancy Cozby, Adair County, KY (1945-2014)

We have lost one of our most treasured citizens, one who made a lifetime of friends in the eight years since she adopted Adair County as her home 'attracted to the area by its beauty, the mild climate, the lakes and rivers and the possibility of living in the country, something Nancy had always wanted to do.' She will be greatly missed.

Nancy Cozby died early Sunday, May 11, 2014 at her home on Little Cake Road in Columbia, Kentucky. She fought a long and hard battle with cancer after being diagnosed more than two years ago. She leaves behind her husband of 18 years, Jerry Holt, her step daughter Natasha, her sister and brother in law: Linda and Fred Wertheimer of Washington, DC.


She moved to Columbia eight years ago with husband, Jerry Holt

Nancy and Jerry moved to Columbia eight years ago from Denver after his retirement from Hewlett Parkhard, attracted to the area by its beauty, the mild climate, the lakes and rivers and the possibility of living in the country, something Nancy had always wanted to do. They immediately became involved in the life of this community; Nancy a potter, but she also took classes in drawing and watercolor after moving to Columbia and she tried a new craft, basket making. For about two years, Nancy taught Yoga for the extension service. Both Nancy and Jerry were enthusiastic members of The Lindsey Wilson Wellness Center, where Nancy swam and took water aerobics classes until the very last weeks of her life.

She was born in Texas. She held two graduate degrees in psychology

Nancy Cozby was born in Texas in the last year of the second world war, raised in Carlsbad, New Mexico and educated at the University of New Mexico. She had two Graduate degrees in Pyschology and practiced as a family therapist for many years. Nancy died at home with her husband Jerry, her daughter Natasha and her sister Linda with her. She was sixty eight years old.

Memorial service will be at the family farm in Little Cake

The family plans a memorial service on Wednesday, May 14, 2014 at 4pmCT, at their farm on Little Cake Road with a reception and dinner to follow the service. Her sister, Linda Wertheimer, will preside over the service. They ask that instead of sending flowers, friends might consider a contribution to an Organization Nancy believed in, GRAWL, the Green River Animal Welfare League, PO Box 298, Columbia, KY 42728.

Stotts-Phelps-McQueary Funeral Home, 210 Greensburg Street, Columbia, KY, in charge of arrangements.

Nancy Cozby (1945-2014) died early Sunday, May 11, 2014 at her home on Little Cake Road in Columbia, Kentucky. She fought a long and hard battle with cancer after being diagnosed more than two years ago. She was a native of Texas, and moved to Adair County, KY, eight years ago with her husband, Gerald Holt. Despite her own problems, she always managed to lend warmth and enouragements to others. A testament to her humanity was the her way with animals and the family suggests that instead of sending flowers, friends might consider a contribution to an Organization Nancy believed in, GRAWL, the Green River Animal Welfare League, PO Box 298, Columbia, KY 42728. The family plans a memorial service on Wednesday, May 14, 2014 at 4pmCT, at their farm on Little Cake Road with a reception and dinner to follow the service.
