She was born on November 30, 1953 in Mill Creek, Pennsylvania. Nancy grew up on a dairy farm and immediately learned the value of hard work. After leaving the family farm, she married Joseph F. Junglas, Jr., devoting her life to marriage and motherhood. After raising 10 children and always putting her needs last, she spent several years involved in the North Dakota Right to Life, a nonprofit organization seeking the protection of all human life. She loved her kids, and always exuded joy in the presence of her grandkids. Tragedy struck her in 2019 when she was diagnosed with cancer, but Nancy never let it impede her selfless service to everyone around her, up until the very end. For as Saint Paul says, “…whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully."
She is survived by her husband, Joseph Francis Junglas Jr.; her children, Ruthann, Matthew, Mary, Joseph, Charles, Katheryn, Dominic, Mareika, Jonathan, and Christopher; grandchildren, Brandon, Allissa, Cathleen, Mattie, Kyle, Hunter, Cierra, Brayden, Camry, Jacob, Tristan, Duncan, Madison, Allison, Hayden, Sophie, Evelyn, Jericho, and Jasleen.
She was preceded in death by her mother and father, Ray Brown and Teresea Dallard Brown; granddaughter, Angelica Junglas; and nephew, Stephen Korinchak.
