Nancy J. (Houser) Rupert, age 92, of Iron Street, Bloomsburg, died at her home on Saturday evening, March 30, 2024 after an illness under the care of Compassus Hospice and her family.

Born in Beaver Township on March 29, 1932, she was a daughter of the late John and Creta Mae (Davis) Houser. She was a 1950 graduate of the former Beaver Township High School and received her teaching degree from the former Bloomsburg State Teachers College in 1978. She was a lifelong resident of the Bloomsburg area.

Nancy was a member of the Davis Chapel United Methodist Church in Beaver Township.

She was last employed at the Keystone Job Corps Center in Drums as a supervisor and teacher, working there for 18 years. Earlier she did substitute teaching in the Bloomsburg School System.

Nancy enjoyed assembling jigsaw puzzles and traveling as well as spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. An avid reader, she enjoyed Bible studies and belonged to a book club.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Wayne E. Rupert, on Feb. 8, 1983 and a granddaughter, Miranda Rupert.

The family would like to thank Traditional Home Health Services of Berwick and their companions and aides for all their help in caring for mother.
