Nancy M. Windsor, age 73, of Gulf Breeze, FL. Passed away peacefully January 17, 2019 at Sacred Heart Hospital in the presence of family.
Born November 24, 1945 in Minneapolis, MN, daughter of Curtis and Gwendolyn (Neff) Windsor, she grew up and lived most of her life in Minnesota. She worked for the Hennepin County Court system for over 30 years until retiring to spend more time with her family, friends and church activities. In 2014 she moved to Gulf Breeze, FL to be near her son’s family and the beach! While in Florida she enjoyed time with her new church (Gulf Breeze United Methodist), knitting prayer shawls, attending lacrosse games with her grandson and spending time with her son and daughter in law’s family. Nancy had a quick wit and amazing smile that was infectious to all around her.
Surviving are her son, Eric W. Larson Sr. and daughter-in-law Kamarie Larson; 2 grandchildren, Eric W. Larson Jr. and Brody A. Larson. Brothers, William Parish and wife Shirley of Babbitt, MN and Jack Parish and wife June of Burnsville, MN.
The funeral service will be held at 11:00 AM Wednesday January 23rd in the small chapel of Gulf Breeze United Methodist Church at 75 Fairpoint Dr, Gulf Breeze, FL 32561.
Nancy wanted to be cremated citing that she “didn’t want to take up any more space” when she passed. She wanted her remains brought to Birch Lake in Babbitt, MN. She’s not been able to get back there for a visit due to illness and was happy to know that is where her final resting place will be.

Nancy and I became fast friends at one of the Scandinavian festivals in Minneapolis. She was always ready and willing to travel and do something new. When I moved to Europe in 1989,she and another friend immediately planned a visit for a week. I remember our bagget bread and new-wine sword fight in the streets of Paris. We laughed our way through Belgium, Germany, France and Holland. When I moved to SC, Nancy immediately instigated a cruise with our mothers. Great time for the 4 of us to play to the Bahamas and back. She drove down to conduct a Weekender clothes party. Another time to laugh. We took a side trip to Wilmington, NC to introduce me to Erich's new wife who was the sweetest girl I ever did meet. And she still is. When Nancy moved to Florida, it gave my husband and me a chance to spend time with her exploring Destin for a long weekend. No matter what we did together, traveling or at home, Nancy was always ready to laugh and have fun. She had enough love for everyone. Her spirit will be with me forever.

When i was 8 years old I went to live with Nancy's family. Since both of us were named Nancy there was a problem because both of us would answer. I suggested they call me by my middle name Louise, and so they did. I lived with Gwen & Harvey for 2 years and Nancy and I shared a room and became sisters. Gwen took such good care of me and Billy was only 2 years old and I thought he was terrific. I left Minneapolis in 1959 to live in Alaska, when I was older and returned to Minneapolis for a visit my first place was to see Gwen and Nancy. So many memories of being a part of her family, so sad to hear she is no longer with us. I will miss you my other sister. Much love to your family.
