Nancy Ann Burgoyne Trusty

Nancy Ann Burgoyne Trusty, 81, passed away peacefully with her family by her side on October 11th, 2022, at Kadlec Regional Medical Center. She was born July 22nd, 1941, in Salem, Massachusetts to Donald and Rita Burgoyne. After her father passed away, her mother, brother (Robert) and her moved to California.

In 1978 she, along with her mother and her daughter, moved to Coeur D’Alene, Idaho.   She resided there until 2012, when upon the passing of her mother in 2011, she decided to move to Richland to live closer to her daughter and son-in-law.  Her last residence was at Parkview Estates assisted living.  She loved living there and made many friends with both the residents and the staff.

In her early years Nancy was very active.  She loved working out and loved being outdoors. She loved gardening, playing golf and she was an accomplished artist in Ceramic Art, and loved Tole Art and Chalk Art.  She loved kids and puppy dogs (especially her “grand puppies” Hops and Pliny). But her favorite companion was her Miniature Schnauzer, PJ.

For twenty years, she worked as the Administrative Secretary for the City of Coeur D’Alene, which involved many of her duties to include working with various City Council members, City Administrator, and personal secretary for various Mayors for the City of Coeur D’Alene.

After her retirement from the City of Coeur D’Alene, she was an Auxiliary Volunteer at Kootenai Medical Center for 7 years. She was a very devout Christian who loved the Lord Jesus Christ and was active member of The Assembly of God Church in Coeur D’ Alene.

Her daughter was her best friend and she said was her greatest accomplishment, whom she called her “Pride and Joy, her Masterpiece, and the love of her life”.  She was very involved in her daughter’s activities such as PTA, Girl Scouts, and various school projects.  Kids loved to come to her house because she was so much fun and had the best snacks.  Being a mom was her true passion.  Her daughter is very grateful and blessed to have had her for a mom.  They had a very close bond that got stronger each year.  They were best friends, each other’s protector, each other’s cheerleader and they were always there for each other.

Nancy showed her love through her personality.  Always smiling, laughing and telling jokes wanting to make someone smile. She brought joy, laughter and happiness to everyone she met and never met a stranger.

Her favorite saying was “I’m a town hugger, not a town mugger” and “I’m new, who are you?” 

Nancy is survived by her daughter Tammy and her son-in-law Dave.

Nancy is preceded in death by her parents David and Rita Cramer, biological Dad Donald Burgoyne, and her brother Bod Burgoyne.

There will be a Celebration of Life at Sunset Memorial Gardens Event Center on Friday, November 4th at 3:00 pm.

In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made to Benton Franklin Humane Society

  • So sorry for your loss Tammy and Dave. Nancy was a sweet lady. I’m sure she will be missed. Next time I see you I would like to raise a toast in her honor, and share some ice cream. I think she would like that.
