Obituary-Nancy DeArmand

Nancy DeArmond, age 86, of Concordia Ks. received her angel wings on Tuesday October 11, 2022 surrounded by family.  She was born August 26, 1936 in Detroit Mi. to Bill and Naomi (Mellor) Pasini.

At a very young age they moved to Pittsburg Ks. where she attended schools, graduating from Pittsburg High School in 1954 and Pittsburg State University in1958 with a bachelor’s degree in Education.  A lifelong member of the First Christian Church she met Fred DeArmond and they married on June 9, 1957.

Nancy will always be known as “Mrs. D” to the generations of students who passed thru the halls of Concordia Jr/Sr high school for 40+ years as a substitute teacher. She truly cared about every student she had the honor to teach.

And who could forget her entertaining “Junior Birdman” song she loved to preform! Nancy’s most joyous moments were when a former student would stop her on the streets of Concordia and say hello! She loved everyone so much.

Nancy is survived by her sons, William DeArmond [Christina], Eudora & Greg DeArmond [Carla] Loveland CO.; son-in-law Kenny Fuller; grandchildren: Mark DeArmond [Liz], Brianne Walker [Keith], Timothy DeArmond [Elizabeth], Brandon DeArmond, and Carli Johnston[Paul], and 9 great grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her husband Fred, daughter Kristi Fuller, and great-grandson Gideon.

A celebration of life service is planned for Monday, November 14th, 2022 at 2pm at Fellowship Christian Church with burial following at Pleasant Hill Cemetery, Concordia. The family will greet friends an hour prior to the services at the church.  The family suggests memorials to the church or Alzheimer’s Assoc. in care of the funeral home.  Chaput-Buoy Funeral Home, Concordia, Kansas is handling arrangements.  For online condolences, please visit
