Nancy Paulette Luffman Ricketts, peacefully passed away on August 8, 2023, at Southern Tennessee Regional Hospital in Pulaski, TN. She was 78 years old. Born in Lawrenceburg, TN to the late Troy Luffman and Myrtle Estelle Sims.

As one of ten children, Nancy grew up in a close-knit family that instilled in her the values of hard work, dedication, and the importance of family bonds. Her upbringing in rural Tennessee in the 50’s laid the foundation for her unyielding work ethic and her deep appreciation for the simple joys of life.

Nancy's life story began anew when she married Harold Glover, Sr. Together, they embarked on a journey raising five wonderful children. Motherhood was one of Nancy's most cherished roles, and her dedication to her family knew no bounds. She was a devoted wife and mother, always putting her family's needs above her own.

In the realm of work, Nancy contributed her skills and dedication for many years at Fafnir Bearings as an Assembly line worker. Her commitment to her job mirrored her commitment to her family – steadfast and unwavering. She approached her work with the same tenacity and dedication that defined every aspect of her life.

Nancy's life was a testament to her inner strength. Her challenging youth cultivated a resilient spirit that guided her through life's challenges. Despite the trials she faced, she always maintained a smile. Her kindness and genuine nature endeared her to all who knew her. Known for her honesty, Nancy was never hesitant to speak her mind.

Her appearance was a reflection of her personality. Nancy was a woman who took pride in her appearance, always seen with her long black hair elegantly styled, her lips adorned with red lipstick, and her nails always matching. Nancy's love for the outdoors was as boundless as her love for her family. She found solace in the beauty of nature and had a special fondness for animals, particularly her beloved Husky, Velvet.

Nancy Paulette Luffman Ricketts leaves behind a legacy of strength, love, and resilience. She is survived by her four children: Lisa C. Glover McCluskey, Harold L. (Hope) Glover, Jr, Karen Renee Glover Massey, and Stanley Wade Glover; 12 grandchildren; and 22 great-grandchildren; siblings: Doris Nell Moore, Roger Luffman, and Ray Luffman; numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins. Nancy is preceded in death by her son Doyle Glover and siblings Kathy, Joey, Francis, Juanita, Jimmy, and Larry.
