Nancy R. Aden, of Gothenburg, Nebraska, passed away at home surrounded by her family on June 2nd, 2023. She was born in McCook, Nebraska on June 28th, 1944 to Charles and Rachel (Meyers) Burke.

Nancy was a caring and devoted wife, mother, grandmother and friend to many throughout her life. She will be remembered as someone who cherished spending time with loved ones, cooking and gardening.

Nancy loved spending time with her family and was always there for them when they needed her most. She took great pride in attending the various school activities of both her children and grandchildren.
