  Nancy A. “Peaches” Wilkinson left us on Aug. 24, 2019 to join her sister, parents and her Charlie. Nancy was born on Aug. 16, 1941 in Phoenix, Arizona at St. Joseph’s Hospital to George “Jack” and Marie D. Townshend. She and her twin were premature and Mary only lived for 20 days. 

  The Townshend family moved to Ray in 1946 after her father was discharged from the U.S. Navy. Nancy graduated Ray High School in 1959. After high school “Peaches” attended Arizona State University for three years before marrying C.E. “Jack” Cummings in 1962. The first move with her new family was to Lander, Wyoming where she worked at a real estate company, then to Ely, Nevada and the birth of her first son Earl in 1965. 

  The family later moved to Lancaster, California where Nancy was employed at Edwards Air Force Base with top secret security clearance. Her second son Scott was born there in 1970. 

  The marriage ended in 1972 and she and her sons returned to Kearny where she met “her Charlie” and they were wed in 1973. This union brought Terri, Sherri, Vince and Donny into the family. Nancy worked at the Kennecott Hospital from 1972-1982. In 1983 She found her calling when she went to work for the Kearny Police Department as a dispatcher. She was convinced to go to the police academy where she served, with love and honor, the town of Kearny for 24 years. 

  She is preceded in death by her sister Mary, her parents Jack and Marie, and her husband Charlie. She is survived by her brother, Jack; her children, Earl, Scott, Terri, Sherri, Vince and Donny; her grandchildren, Jake, Kyndra, Ashley, Dillan, Kyndell, Garrett and Shea; her great-grandchildren, Eylla Lou, Freya, Cameron, Josia, Charlee, Kyson and Wyatt. 

  Services were held on Saturday, Aug. 31, 2019 at the Ray High School Auditorium in Kearny, AZ. 

  The family was assisted with exceptional service by Griffith Mortuary.
