The Passing of a Wonderful Women of God, Nancy Sweigard


Sonja familyThis morning I received the sad news from Dear friend Sonja HaldemanSonja and Mom that her Mom, Nancy Sweigard of Windom, Minnesota passed onto heaven in her sleep, very peacefully. We thank the Lord for the life here on earth of Nancy, she was such an awesome wife to Ralph and mother to her children, Sonja, Linda and Wes. She is now with our Father in heaven, Amen! The Lord gave me these two scriptures when I asked Him about Nancy, being Mother to Sonja, Linda and Wes……Deuteronomy 6: 5-9…. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

Being wife to Ralph…Proverbs 31:10 An excellent wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels. The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain. She does him good, and not harm, all the days of her life. She seeks wool and flax, and works with willing hands. She is like the ships of the merchant; she brings her food from afar. …

Nancy was 83 years of age and was married to Ralph on May 11th 1955…almost 60 years!

Sonja was my classmate in Windom, Minnesota and her family just lived a stones throw from our house.

A wonderful Godly family and our prayers, love and sympathy go out to the family.

We cover Ralph, Sonja, Linda and Wes and whole extended  family and friends in our prayers, Amen!

God Bless the memory of Nancy Sweigard! Amen!

I will close with this…….it was sad to take the phone call from Sonja…..our parents passing, my Mom and Dad have been in heaven for many years…it is also hard to see those roots in Windom, Minnesota passing….but it is by the heritage and foundation built by the likes of Ralph and Nancy Sweigard and Wally and Ruth Moede, and many, many others that those Godly roots will never die.

UPDATE: Nancy’s funeral will be Friday, March 20th at 2pm at the Methodist Church in Windom, Minnesota. Visitation prior to the service.
