Nancy Carol Koehrman, 81
Nancy Carol Koehrman 81, passed peacefully in her sleep on September 4, 2020, at the hospice center of northwest Ohio. She was born on June 1, 1939 to James and Carrol Portteus.
Nancy graduated high school in 1957 from Divilbiss high school. She went on to work as a receptionist at Moore Ford where she met her husband, Richard Koehrman.
She loved horses, particularly American Saddlebreds, and would go on the show and breed them most of her adult life at her beloved Summerfield Farm in Temperance, Michigan.
Her farm trained and helped produce several World’s Champion Saddlebred and Hackney ponies. Although she was proud of that, what she loved the most was the faces of the horses peeking at her from the stalls.
She enjoyed her life on the farm with all of her horses, dogs, and cats she took care of and friends that would visit.
Later in life she moved to a small farm in Whitehouse, Ohio, where she enjoyed trail riding through oak openings.
Nancy was preceded in her death by her husband Richard Koehrman, her mother Carroll and her father James. She is survived by her son Tim Koehrman, his wife DeAnna Koehrman, her grandchildren Levi and Lola and nephew Danny Russell.
Nancy wished to spend eternity among the horses and animals she loved so her ashes will be spread at her beloved farm at a later date. If you wish to celebrate Nancy’s life, please consider donating to your local Humane Society in her name.
