On Monday, February 24, Nancy Huffman Walden passed away. Her family and her husband Myron were there surrounding her with their love. Her beautiful smile, love of life and family and being positive, encouraging and loving to everyone she met will be remembered forever. Nancy was born in San Antonio, Texas on September 9, 1965 to Jack and Kay Huffman. She grew up in Austin, TX, graduating from Anderson High School in 1983, where she was a Trojan Belle.
Nancy graduated from Texas A&M University in College Station with a B.A. in Business Administration in 1990 and started her professional career at Dillard's department store. Nancy found her "niche" as an auditor for the Texas Department of Transportation. She continued her auditor career at the Texas Lottery Commission and as an Audit Manager at Texas Department of Public Safety. She was very proud of being able to participate in and graduate from the DPS Command School. Nancy enjoyed being with people and worked at the College Station HEB for several years. Nancy was involved with Boy Scout Troop 60 and was the advancement chair and on the eagle scout advancement committee. She loved gardening, being outdoors, and animals which included her rescue dogs, cats and Oreo cows.
As she faced her cancer diagnosis in 2017, Nancy did not let chemotherapy, radiation, or the side effects prevent her from participating fully in life and showing others how to be a brave, strong warrior. The family would like to thank all the staff who cared for Nancy at Scott and White in College Station and Temple.
