Nancy Boerman McLennan, 62, of Mills River went to be with her Lord and Savior on Tuesday, October 12, 2021 surrounded by her family at home after a courageous battle with leukemia.
Born in Chicago, IL, she was the daughter of Joseph Erwin Boerman and the late Wilma Bright Boerman.
She worked at John Brown University, Lutheran General Hospital, and Blue Ridge Community College before having children and becoming a homemaker. Nancy was a member of Biltmore Church in Arden. She enjoyed cooking, gardening, and spending time with her children and grandchildren. She was the “hostess with the mostest.” She loved her life in the beautiful North Carolina mountains.
She is survived by her high school sweetheart and beloved husband of 43 years, Gordon Scott McLennan; 2 adored children, daughter Amber McLennan Hix (son-in-law Joshua R. Hix) and son Taylor Scott McLennan (daughter-in-law Lauren E. McLennan); 4 cherished grandchildren, Hugh Hudson Hix, Rowan Emery McLennan, Henry Richards Hix, and Declan Scott McLennan; 2 older brothers, Joseph E. Boerman, Jr. and Robert W. Boerman. She loved her brother-in-laws and sister-in-laws, and her 18 nieces and nephews, as well as their families very much. Her mother-in-law, Jeanne McLennan, was like a mother to her.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, October 30, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. at Lake Hills Church in Candler. The family will receive friends prior to the service from 9:30 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. at the church.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Lake Hills Church, 370 Lake Drive, Biltmore Lake, NC 28715. One of the most important things to Nancy was that her grandchildren grow up to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior. The family feels that donations to the church where her children and grandchildren attend is what she would have wanted.
