Obituary For Nancy Marty Bollig

MT. HOREB/VERONA–Nancy Marty Bollig, age 63, passed away on Thursday, July 14, 2022, from complications of Covid.

Nancy was born on September 18, 1958, to Paul Marty and Dorothy (Sweeney) Marty. Nancy attended two weeks of kindergarten at Gordon School before attending St. Andrew’s Catholic School in Verona. She then attended Verona Public Schools where she participated in many activities including multiple theater productions; Nancy was also a member of the VHS pompom squad. During her high school years, Nancy was a model on the Manchester Teen Board and participated in 4-H where she excelled in training dogs. After graduating from VHS in 1976, Nancy attended Madison Area Technical College, graduating with a degree as a veterinary technician. She worked as a vet tech at Westgate Pet Clinic, the first all-female veterinary clinic in Madison, for more than 35 years before retiring.

The joy of Nancy’s life was spending time with her husband, Steve, and her family. She was so proud of her three sons–Tyler, Jackson, and Wyatt. Her latest happiness came from her two grandchildren, June and Walter.

Nancy is survived by her husband of 25 years, Steve Bollig; children, Tyler (Whitney) Knudtson, Jackson Bollig, and Wyatt Bollig; grandchildren, June and Walter Knudtson; sisters, Pat (Mike) Ehly and Jean (Gary Cannalte) Marty; uncle, Leo Sweeney and aunt, Mary Hefty; mother-in-law Mary Bollig; Steve’s family, Pam (Mike) Lamberty, Randy (Roxanne) Bollig, Paula (Len) Hornung, and Chuck Bollig; her first husband, Jim Knudtson; and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. Nancy was preceded in death by her mother and father and her father-in-law, Delbert Bollig.

Nancy requested no formal visitation or service. A private burial service will be held at St. Andrew Catholic Cemetery in Verona, and a private family celebration will be held at a future date. Memorials can be made to the American Lung Association or the Wounded Warrior Project.

    I enjoyed chatting with Nancy when working in her Mom's garden and also Steve and the boys when they were helping with the lawn and yard work. My condolences to all of the family. May the love, memories, and support of family and friends get you through these sad times. Cindy (Bollig) Schwierske

    I knew Nancy as the vet tech at Westgate Pet Clinic and was so sorry to hear of her passing. She was wonderful in her job of caring for our dogs over at least 15 years. And she was there at our house to when they both were euthanized... Nancy was unfailingly friendly and helpful. And she was fun to talk with; it was a pleasure to see her every time I went to her office. My condolences to her family; I am sure she will be sorely missed. Deborah Lawson

    I was honored to care for Nancy's parents, Paul and Dorothy, which allowed me to meet many in the family. I greatly enjoyed my talks with Nancy and I can't find the words to express to Steve, her sons, her sisters and all those left behind. Let the love you all share and the beautiful memories carry you thru and give you peace. God be with all of you and welcome Nancy home.

    Nancy was the vet tech who helped treat all the animals in my life-- at Westgate Pet Clinic - and there were many! Her kindness, compassion, humor and love for them is something I treasure. Condolences to her family.

    Nancy and I were friends at Verona High School, and even rode the school bus together. My thoughts and prayers go out to Nancy's family and friends. Bless you, Peggy Ellis (formerly Peggy Childers).

what our families say

Tiffany Foster went out of her way to fulfill all my requests, talked me through problems I was facing, and tried to make me feel as comfortable as possible when I was a wreck, totally crushed, and I thank her with all of my heart for that.

The professional manner of the staff made a difficult time a little easier.

Lynda R. | July 2020

Services provided for both parents were perfect, on time, and no issues. Brenda is awesome and strong!

Michael M. | July 2020

Skyler was absolutely amazing. She was so caring and helpful through this whole process. She even went above and beyond to meet with us in DeForest and even to make a stop at our home to drop off or pick up anything needed. While it was a small gesture, it was so helpful and greatly appreciated.
