Nanette Jean Hulscher, age 47, from Brandon, South Dakota,  passed away on Tuesday, January 2, 2018 after a long illness.

Nanette loved to travel and was able to see a large portion of the world with her parents and later in one of her first jobs as a cruise ship disc jockey.  Her eyes would sparkle when she’d tell stories of her and Andy’s Mexico vacations or the stories about corralling five young children through the streets of London while visiting her beloved Uncle Eddie.

Nanette was born on March 20, 1970, in Sioux Falls. She grew up in Greece, Belgium, and San Francisco. She began her schooling in San Rafael, California. She graduated from Mitchell High School in 1988 and Mitchell Technical Institute in 1994. She worked as a lab technician at Sanford Hospital in Sheldon, Iowa.

Nanette loved photography, crafts, hiking, and kayaking but most of all, she loved her children. In recent years, she embraced her adventurous side by racing dune buggies in the desert, deep sea sport fishing, and even skydiving. Nanette was always up for a new adventure. She’d often be found on nice days hiking with her children in Palisades State Park.

Nanette’s compassion led her into the medical field. She chose to drive over an hour to work in both Westbrook, MN and Sheldon, IA so she could work in small community hospitals to personally get to know and engage with her patients.

Without attracting any attention to herself, Nanette was famous for stopping to care for the downtrodden. Andy recalls how concerned he’d become when she drove all the way to Mission for work while pregnant with Mathew making stops along the way to help anyone with money and clothes.
