Obituary of Nancy Stillings
Nancy Korvola Stillings, 86 of Boise, Idaho, passed away peacefully of natural causes on April 1, 2023, with her children by her side.
Nancy enjoyed a long and full life. She was born in Oregon and moved to Orofino, Idaho, as a young girl. She graduated from Orofino High School and attended Oregon State University.
Nancy married Fred Stillings, and after living briefly in Missoula, MT and White Salmon, WA, they settled in Boise where they raised their four children. She was unconditionally supportive of her children’s interests, activities and education.
Nancy returned to college when her youngest child entered school, graduating from Boise State University with a degree in education. She taught for 20 years and was a dedicated kindergarten teacher at Whitney Elementary School where she made a positive impact in the lives of many children.
Upon retirement, Nancy enjoyed her puttering in her garden, traveling and going to live theater with family and friends. She loved to spend time with her grandchildren, playing games and attending their activities.
Nancy is preceded in death by her parents, brother Dick, and sister Charlene. She is survived by her sisters Carol, Ruth, and Lois; her brother Pat; her children Susan, Kristin (Eric), Shelly (Lee), and Fred (Becca); her grandchildren Allison, Stephen (Jean Marie), Tristan (Sarah), Skyler, Daniel and Ella; and her great-granddaughter, Carys.
A private family memorial will be held at a later date. Donations in Nancy’s honor can be made to the Boise Public Schools Foundation (directed to Whitney Elementary School) or the Alzheimer’s Association.
