Nancy A. Schensky (nee Reinsvold)

Passed away peacefully on March 7, 2023, at Attic Angels Place in Middleton, Wisconsin at the age of 89.  She was born October 17, 1933, in LaCrosse, Wisconsin and was the only daughter of Regina and Doran Reinsvold.  After graduating from Aquinas High School in 1951, Nancy worked for the Trane Company in LaCrosse, WI.  It was at a dance where she met Daniel F. Schensky.  In 1953, she married Daniel and moved to Madison, Wisconsin.  She had a full life as wife and mother of four children while also working part-time jobs throughout the years.  After 32 years with the State of Wisconsin she retired in 2012, at the age of 78, as an administrative assistant from the University Office of Biological Safety.

Nancy was a quiet, reserved, good natured woman with a lovely smile and beautiful blue eyes.  For decades, she was passionately involved with her all-time favorite sports--bowling and golfing.  She also loved going to movies, playing bingo, practicing the piano, shopping, and attending craft shows with her friends.  Nancy always had a special place in her heart for dogs, really missing her little Bichon, Lacy.

All of Nancy’s family and friends will fondly remember her as the “night owl” as she enjoyed staying up until the wee hours of the morning.

Nancy is survived by her daughters, Rose LeTourneau (Jim), Ann Tuscic (Steve), and sons Daniel S. Schensky (Ann) & Steven Schensky (Tammy).  She is also survived by grandchildren; Gail Lane (fiancée Andy), Ben Schensky (Jaime), Dustin Williams (Farin), Gina DeBano (Dave), Madeline & Jadyn Schensky.  Great grandchildren; Grace Hying and Cosette Williams.  Close Friends:  Judy Killian, Lois Prochnow

She was preceded in death by; her parents, husband Dan, brother in-law Albert, sisters-in-law Gladys Vallance, Kathleen Jenks (Russell) and her close cousin Arlene (Richard) Eirschelle.

If flowers grow in heaven,
Lord, then pick a bunch for me.
Then place them in my mother's arms
and tell her they're from me.
Tell her that I love and miss her
and when she turns to smile,
place a kiss upon her cheek and hold her for a while
.
