Nancy M. Donlin, age 79 of Oregon, passed away on Sunday, July 1, 2018, at Agrace HospiceCare, Inc. in Fitchburg. She was born on September 10, 1938 at St. Mary's Hospital in Madison to her parents, Norman and Florence (Streiff) Fischl.

Nancy graduated from Belleville High School in 1956. On September 6, 1958, she was united in marriage to W. Patrick Donlin at St. Mary of Lourdes Catholic Church in Belleville. The couple moved to Park Falls, WI, in 1964 where her husband served as Price County Judge. As Pat would be appointed or elected to a new position the couple and their growing family would relocate, including moves to Rothschild in 1978 and then to Connecticut in 1981. After her husband's passing in 1996, Nancy moved back to the Madison area. Nancy was a worldwide traveler and professional shopper. She loved to host get togethers and entertain. Nancy volunteered for over 20 years at St. Mary's Hospital and SSM Health. She had crocheted numerous blankets and prayer shawls for families and patients. But most of all, Nancy cherished her children and grandchildren.
