Nancy C. Nummi


Nancy Carol (Jarvi) Nummi, passed away Monday, January 16, 2023 at New Perspective-Betty’s Harbor in Superior after a long and courageous battle with Lewy body dementia.

Nancy was born on September 8, 1939 in Superior, WI to Tyyne (Rinda) and Peter Jarvi. After graduating from Central High School in 1957, she was employed by Larson Chevrolet where she met Donald Nummi. They were married on June 3, 1961 and celebrated 51 years of marriage.

Nancy focused her love and attention on her family and especially on her cherished granddaughters. She enjoyed socializing and was always proud when discussing her Finnish heritage.

Nancy is survived by son Donald Jr., daughter-in-law Tina, granddaughters Lauren and Jennifer, sister Dorothy (the late Ted) Hakkinen, and many extended family members.

She was preceded in death by husband Donald, parents Tyyne and Peter, sisters Sadie (the late James) Peterson, Hazel (the late Edward) Herter, brothers Raymond (the late Delores) Jarvi, Norman (Betty) Jarvi, Harold (the late Arlene) Jarvi, and beloved pet dachshund Snoopy.
