Obituary for Nancy Nasset Kersch

Nancy Nasset Kersch, age 78, died September 19, 2019 at home in the presence of her loving sister Linda Nasset and cherished cousin Martha Nasset. Nancy was preceded in death by her beloved son Eric and her devoted husband Leonard A. Kersch. Nancy is survived by her loving step-son, David Kersch (Patty) and three beautiful grandsons, Patrick, Philip, and William Kersch. Nancy is also survived by her treasured sister-in-law Sheri Kersch Schultz (Howard), beloved brother-in-law Stephen Kersch, and loving nephews Justin Nasset Fitins and Andrew Nasset Fitins. Nancy was blessed by kind and devoted cousins from her own loving extended family and also from her beloved husband Leonard’s family.

Nancy was a lover of books and great literature. She was reading by age four with her mother Myrtle, a teacher who took pride in Nancy’s academic accomplishments. From the time she entered school in Toledo, Ohio, her report cards were filled with “O’s” for Outstanding. She continued as an outstanding student at DeVilbiss High School and in her senior year was Editor-in-Chief of the award winning newspaper, “The Prism”. She formed life-long friendships with her fellow journalism students, Bob Damrauer and Sandy Swift Mauceli. The three lunched nearly every day at the Union while attending The University of Michigan. Nancy was invited to represent the Junior and Senior women at the Honors Convocation and was initiated into Phi Beta Kappa her senior year. Nancy taught high school English before returning to graduate studies at U of M. Completing her Master’s degree, she continued as a doctoral candidate in English Literature and American Culture.

Nancy’s artistic talents led her to a life-long love of garden and interior design, reflected in her keen sense of color, texture, and structural design. She always had stunning gardens and beautifully appointed homes. Her design skills were further demonstrated in 1974 when she and her beloved husband Leonard turned their extraordinary talents into a business. They formed their company Garden Milieu, which designed, installed, and maintained interior landscapes. Their specialty was large projects: major malls, corporate headquarters, hotels, and conservatories. Because of Nancy and Len’s unique combined talents, they were often invited into the earliest design phases of their many projects.

As her son Eric’s debilitating illness progressed, Nancy retired from professional life and devoted herself to his care with Len’s enduring and tender support. She treasured her blessed 42 year marriage to her beloved husband Leonard. Nancy knew when they first fell in love that she had found the love of her life. As Nancy drew closer to her end of days she asked that she be remembered for her deep love of family and close friends. Nancy’s beautiful smile and kind, loving nature endured until the last moments of her life. We will carry her in our hearts forever.

A memorial service will take place Thursday, October 17, 2019 at 11 am at Barton Hills Country Club, 730 Country Club Rd, Ann Arbor.
