Nancy Ann Putnam, age 89, of Midland, MI, died peacefully, Saturday, January 9, 2021 surrounded by her family in Ocala, Florida. The daughter of the late Phillip and Frances was born August 5, 1931 in Saginaw where she was raised and lived until she married the love of her life, Lowell Putnam.
Nancy, a 1949 graduate of Saint Andrews High School, married Lowell on April 25, 1953 at Saint Andrews in Saginaw. She was a member of Saint Brigid of Kildare in Midland where she avidly attended mass each Sunday. A lover of diamonds and leopard print, she will always be remembered for her sense of style, her quick wit and her disapproval of stemless wine glasses. Nancy enjoyed fine dining, shopping and spending time with her family.
