Nancy "Fat Granny" Jean Sarlo was a remarkable individual whose presence brought joy and warmth to all those around her. Known for her loving nature and infectious laughter, Nancy touched the lives of many with her kindness and generosity.
Throughout her life, Nancy found solace in crafting, cooking, and baking. Her passion for quilting not only brought her peace but also resulted in beautiful creations that will be cherished for years to come. Nancy had a keen sense of humor and could always be found laughing and joking with friends and family.
A dedicated fan of football, Nancy's heart belonged to the Tennessee Titans. She enjoyed cheering on her favorite team, especially during game days when she would gather with loved ones to watch the games unfold.
Above all else, Nancy valued her family dearly. She shared a deep and loving bond with her husband, providing unwavering support and care throughout their years together. Her greatest joy, however, came from spending time with her grandkids whom she adored beyond measure.
In the hearts of those who knew her best, Nancy will forever remain a source of light and love. While she may no longer be with us in person, her spirit lives on through the memories we hold dear.
Nancy Jean Sarlo will be deeply missed by her surviving family members including her husband, children, grandchildren, and a wide circle of friends whose lives she enriched with her presence.


And with the words of Fat Granny, “and stuff, and all, and everything”
