      Nancy B. Mennes, 68, of Superior, Wis., passed away peacefully with her family and friends by her side, on Wednesday Nov. 21, 2012, at the Solvay Hospice House in Duluth, Minn.

      She was born on March 8, 1944, in Sterling, Ill. She was the daughter of George and Elsie (Worley) Billeaux.

      Nancy married the love of her life, Sidney Mennes, on Sept. 3, 1976, and enjoyed 16 years of marriage until his passing in 1992.

      Nancy worked for the Social Security Administration as a claims representative for 29 years until her retirement in 1995. Upon her retirement she enjoyed traveling with her sister and friends.

      Nancy will be fondly remembered as the "The Dog Lady" as she shared her love of her pets with those in nursing homes and with students in the Superior School District where students tested their reading skills by reading to her dog Billie Bob. She was a member of Therapy Dog International.

      Nancy was an avid football fan and especially enjoyed watching and cheering on the Wisconsin Badgers and Green Bay Packers.

      Her time was also spent knitting, gardening, crafting, and enjoying the company of her many friends.

      She was preceded in death by her husband, her parents and her much loved pets.

      Nancy is survived by her Sister Donna (Bruce) Nelson, Brother David (Ana) Billeaux, special cousin and friend Connie (Paul) Ford, nephews Matt (Jen) Nelson, Tim (Erika) Nelson, Michael Billeaux and neice Sara Billeaux. Nancy also leaves behind her beloved Miniature Schnauzer- Billy Bob who will be cared for by a special friend, Margaret Sislo. Nancy will be sadly missed by her family, many close friends and neighbors.

      At Nancy's request there will be no services. A private family service will be held at a later date.

      Nancy's family would like to thank the staff of the Solvay Hospice House for the attentive care, concern and special love during her last moments. Memorials can be made to Solvay Hospice House, 801 Baylis Street, Duluth, MN 55811 or to the Superior Animal Hospital 36 East 2nd Street, Superior, WI 54880 where a fund will be established in Nancy and Billy Bob's name for emergency cases or special need pets.
