8/8/28 – 12/12/19
Humanity lost one of its best and brightest souls and heaven gained a real firecracker when
Nancy took her last breath December 12. She was the only child born to Frederick Charles and Lou
Buzek Shultz in South Bend, Indiana. The family moved to Indianapolis where Nancy completed her
schooling, graduating from Broad Ripple High School. Nancy married Roy Foxworthy in 1949 and from
their union four children were born; they later divorced. Nancy returned to the work force in 1963 and
was employed by L.S. Ayres & Co., J. C. Penney, and the Veterans Administration. In 1966 Nancy
married Rodney Wyrick, a career military man and widower with four children of his own. There was
much travel, moving, new jobs and new friends to be made. Nancy fit right in and embraced her new
life. The blended family joined together to create a lasting familial bond that has stood the test of time.
Nancy was an independent, determined, and adventurous woman. She loved to: read and learn
something new; experience nature; explore new places; hike new trails; grow exotic flowers; have a
glass of wine or cold beer with friends and family; cook family meals and enjoy the feast and fellowship;
solve jigsaws, crosswords and cryptograms; sing along with musical soundtracks; try new crafts; send
Christmas ornaments to her family, and keep up with Snoopy’s latest adventures. Nancy taught the
entire family to be loving, supportive individuals by her example. Following her retirement, Nancy and
Rod moved to Sun City Center, where they once again got involved with activities and friends. Some
years after Rod’s passing, Nancy moved to Aston Gardens at the Courtyards. She enjoyed the activities,
the beautiful grounds, the friends she made there, and she especially liked the food! Nancy was a
member of Broad Ripple Methodist Church and United Community Church, Daughters of the Nile,
Tampa Bay Area Women’s Club, Ladies Oriental Shrine of North America, We Care Ladies of Sun City
Center Shrine, and Past Potentates Ladies of Egypt Shrine.
Nancy was preceded in death by her parents, husband Rodney, son-in-law Mahmoud Bahrami,
and grandson Jeremy Wyrick. She is survived by her children: Linda (Bob) Flynn, Rebecca (Charlie)
Krikorian, Beverly (Paul) Radloff, Roberta Wyrick, Scott (Madelyn) Foxworthy, Randy Wyrick (Mary
Workman), Carol Bahrami; and Ricky Wyrick; ten grandchildren, five great-grandchildren, and one
great-great-grandson. She will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
Cremation has taken place and at Nancy’s request there will be no service. Memorials may be
made to Shriners Hospitals for Children or a charity of your choice.
