Nancy Hasbrouck Stathis

Nancy Hasbrouck Stathis, loving wife, mother, grandmother, aunt and friend, was taken from us at the young age of 55 from her second battle with cancer on Jan. 20, 2012.

Services will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 4, 2012, at the American Legion Hall in Cascade. Following the service there will be a potluck to share memories of Nancy with her family and friends.

Nancy was born July 7, 1956, to John and Lelani Hasbrouck of Cascade Nancy was raised on the family ranch on the edges of Clear Creek.

She loved helping her dad, mom and five siblings tend to the animals and drive the old military truck hauling hay.

She attended all but one year of her school years in Cascade. She attended her junior year in Horseshoe Bend and attended Emmett school so she could help her dad with the cows on the winter ranch.

After graduating from Cascade she attended the University of Idaho to follow in her dad, mom and two older sisters’ foot steps.

Nancy had a deep passion for her Vandals. She bled silver and gold through and through.

Nancy also had a deep passion for the Gamma Phi Beta sorority and loved to give her “BJC” friends a hard time.

She graduated from the University of Idaho with a degree in communications. After college Nancy was a news anchor for Channel 12 in Nampa.

In 1981 she met the love of her life, Harry Stathis. They married Jan. 2, 1983 on the family ranch in Cascade. They lived in McCall where Nancy went to work for Intermountain State Bank as a bank teller.

In 1985, Harry and Nancy were blessed with their first child, Morgan Stathis Hersel. In 1987 their second blessing Michael John Stathis was born.

Her kids meant the world to her. She never missed any of their sporting events, even if she had to drive to Moscow for Morgan’s volleyball games or to Fruitland to watch Michael play football.

Some of her fondest memories were the 10 to 14 hour drives to snocross races with six people packed in the truck.

No matter the temperature or the weather, she would be yelling, which her kids could hear over their race snowmobiles, to pin it.

Harry and Nancy owned and operated Harry’s Drydock from 1986 to 1995 when they bought the Sports Marina as well.

Nancy was the brains behind the business. After selling the marina, Nancy worked as a painter and then went to work for Valley County as a deputy auditor in 2008. She loved working for the county and took great pride in her work.

In 2009 Nancy’s third blessing came along, her granddaughter, Layla Marie Hersel. Nancy loved spending as much time as she could with her granddaughter.

She always looked forward to her Fridays off when she could spend all day with her granddaughter. She didn’t like it when her baby girl had to move to Boise.

Nancy fought her second round of cancer courageously and never gave up. She was one of the strongest-willed women any one has ever met
