Nancy Brozovich

Nancy Brozovich, longtime resident of Leavenworth, Washington, passed away Jan. 25, 2018 at the age of 78. Nancy had been recovering from brain surgery at Columbia Lutheran Home in Seattle when metastasized lung cancer took her life. The family would like to start by saying thank you to the surgical and nursing team at Harborview Medical and then to everyone at Columbia Lutheran for the compassionate and dedicated care that they gave our Mom each day. Nancy was the strength and the glue of our family. She was dedicated to family above all else and made time for each of us so we knew that we were special. She never lost hope and was rock solid when there was a crisis. This is the way she lived and the way she died.
Nancy was born and raised in Eureka, California. She and John Brozovich were married on Sept. 5, 1959 and started their life together in Alaska as he completed his tour in the Air Force. They moved to Seattle and within a year moved to Lynnwood to finish building their new home. Nancy spent the first 15 years of their marriage taking care of their growing family and sewing professionally from home for a local designer boutique. Her creations were ahead of the time and sought after. Nancy moved into the corporate world in the early ‘80’s and she retired from Moore Business Forms in 1998. Retired in Leavenworth, they built the home of their dreams.
Nancy and John were two peas in a pod, soul mates for 50-plus years, and spent every day loving each other deeply, developing their land, hiking in the mountains, and motorcycling all over the western United States, Alaska, and Canada. She was an accomplished pianist, who filled the house with different genres of music from classical to current. Nancy was a wonderful baker who made a cache of weekly sweets for John and whoever else came to visit; she made jams and jellies from berries that they picked and canned fruits of the season. She knit caps for her grandchildren and scarves for her daughters. Nancy devoured both fiction and non-fiction and loved to work different puzzles. She was politically minded and an advocate for those less fortunate. One of her biggest passions was being an active board member and participant of Upper Valley Connection where she spent time coaching, participating with Special Olympics, and sewing for Theater camp each year. She made wonderful friends and cared for them deeply.
Nancy has gone to meet her husband John who preceded her in death in 2015. She is survived by her girls - Katherine Aguilar (spouse Joe) of Lake Stevens, Washington; Kim Akers (spouse David) of Palmer, Alaska; and Kristy Armstrong of Marysville, Washington. She is also survived by her sister Marge Bonds and her husband Darryl of Florence, Oregon. She is survived by her grandchildren and great-grandchildren - Mollyne Aguilar of California; Mathew Akers and son Oliver of Washington; Sean Akers (spouse Brie and their children Parker and Aiden) of Washington; Kyle Barnes and son Dominic of Washington; and Cooper Armstrong of Washington.
