Nancy L. Hurt

April 7, 1949 — December 25, 2015

Nancy L. Hurt       “Beloved wife, mother, and grandmother and Kansas Jayhawks fanatic”

COUDERSPORT, PA---The Kansas University Jayhawks men’s basketball team lost one of its biggest supporters with the passing of Nancy Lynn Martin Hurt, 66, of Coudersport, formerly of Galeton, on Friday, December 25, 2015. Recently retired as Director of the Potter County Office of Domestic Relations, Nancy died in Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital, Williamsville, N.Y., with her family by her side following a battle with cancer.  
     Born on April 7, 1949, in Wellsville, N.Y., Nancy was a daughter of William J. and Gladys Fisher Martin of Galeton, both now deceased. Nancy graduated from Galeton Area High School in 1967 and from Pennsylvania State University in 1970 with a bachelor’s degree in secondary education. She also received a paralegal certificate in 1987 from Mansfield University.
     On July 26, 1988, in Galeton, she married Roger A. Hurt, known around Coudersport for long daily walks with his dog and in Austin High School as “Mr. Hurt,” where he taught for 37 years. Nancy taught social studies for one year at Austin, where she met Roger, her husband of 27 years. From 1989 to 1998, she worked as a clerk in the Potter County Prothonotary’s Office. In 1998, she was appointed director of the Potter County Office of Domestic Relations, serving until her retirement in 2015. Nancy brought the office into the digital age and oversaw major changes in its recordkeeping practices.
     Surviving Nancy are the five children of her and Roger’s successful blended marriage: Drew A. (Stacy) Hurt of Bridgeville, Pa.; Joel R. (Stephanie) Hurt of Gibsonia, Pa.; Jennifer (Arthur Smith) Boscia-Smith of Williamsville, N.Y.; Benjamin A. Boscia of Coudersport, and Theodore V. (Amy) Boscia of Ithaca, N.Y. She is also survived by her 10 greatest joys, grandchildren Griffin, 12, Emmett, 10, Charles, 9, Ian, 9, William, 7, Sadie, 6, Alexander, 4, Samuel, 4, Daniel, 3, and Cora, 2, as well as her beloved dog, Jake, two sisters, Janice A. (William) Pinney of Galeton and Marilyn M. Starry of York, Pa., and two nieces and one nephew and their families.
     Next to family and friends, Nancy’s deepest love was for Kansas Jayhawks basketball. She rarely missed a KU game on television and always dreamed of attending a game at Allen Fieldhouse. She enjoyed cheering her Jayhawks to many deep runs in the NCAA Tournament, including the 2008 championship. Nancy’s enthusiasm for college hoops also included many seasons as a ticket holder for Saint Bonaventure University basketball.
     Nancy was a member of the Park United Methodist Church in Coudersport and the Coudersport Golf Club. She loved to shop—in stores, online, or at home on QVC. From her parents, she inherited a joy for gardening. She also liked mystery and suspense novels and battling family members in Words With Friends. Nancy enjoyed traveling, especially to the Outer Banks with her sister.
     Friends may call from 6 to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, December 29, and from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Wednesday, December 30, at Park United Methodist Church, Coudersport, where funeral services will follow at 12 p.m. The Rev. Scott Ogden, pastor, will officiate. Burial will be in Sweden Hill Cemetery, Coudersport.
     In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Teacher’s Pet Rescue, 19 Blackberry Lane, Coudersport, PA, 16915; the March of Dimes Northwest PA Division, 1131 West 38th Street, Erie, PA, 16508; Horses with Hope, 1054 Val Street, Bethel Park, PA, 15102; or the University of Kansas Athletic Department, 1651 Naismith Drive, Lawrence, KS, 66045.
Rock chalk, Jayhawk, KU!
