Nancy Lou Thibodeau married Douglas Allan Landers May 12, 2007, in Romulus, Wayne County, Michigan.
Nancy has two children, Sara, and Nick, and a stepson Dennis.
house at 1562 Mollie Street Ypsilanti, to my current home in Westland.
They always had time to play cards, board games and take me with them to visit family and friends. She was an awesome cook and I still make green beans, and corn bread like she did.

Grandpa Thibodeaus orchard provided fruit, and solitude. An in depth education in pruning, pollination, species of trees, and taste, was provided by Grandpa! I remember being fascinated with his knowledge of fruit and the trees that produced it.
But nothing beat him putting a veil on me then handing me a smoker pot to "smoke the bees" while he checked the hives!
Grandma always had homemade baked goods on hand, her date nut bars were the best! I learned how to make applesauce from her. She also had a green thumb and I still have a Christmas cactus that was started from hers.
In February of 1974, my Father died on the 12th, and nine days later Grandpa Thibodeau passed on the the 21st. During this time I took on more responsibility for the farm animals, and farm in general.
The following year in December my Grandpa Varner died. Life for me had changed drastically.
My first job was at Wiards Apple Orchard, down the road from our house.
I moved on to work in a service station, pumping gas, doing minor repairs, and driving a tow truck on occasion.
Then, I worked for a couple of veterinarians, and was exposed to "Exotic" animals including tigers, monkeys, and other exotic cats.
I have also worked as "Grounds Maintenance" caring for 36 acres, and later in the maintenance department.
Today I am grateful for the experience and knowledge gained from my grandparents and parents. Tinkering with farm equipment, learning about animals, trees, flowers, baking, and canning.
The biggest lesson was learning life has no guarantees, and you must always take responsibility for your choices, which lead to your destination.
Currently, my yard, is a certified "Wildlife Habitat", and I plan to open a wildlife rehabilitation center.

I spend lots of time with my grandson, Kien, building Lego sets, and letting him help me build garden arches and other miscellaneous items.
Organic gardening of herbs, vegetables, and fruit, is a year round job that provides nutritional food for my family.
Growing native plants that feed and shelter wildlife has brought many different types of wildlife to my suburban yard. So far I have had jack rabbits, baby raccoons, a bat, and a red shinned hawk, along with many other species of avian pay a visit or two.
My 1977 Harley Davidson Super Glide provides me with fun and freedom. My husband and I love to ride when we can.
Now the genealogy bug has bitten, and I am discovering my family history and heritage. The research and fascinating history I'm learning has led me to document it all on Wiki Tree. By discovering my roots, my life and the current path I'm on, makes more sense to me now. I hope future generations of my family enjoy the results. Perhaps a future generation will pick up, and carry the genealogy torch.
My experience on Wiki Tree has been so awesome. So many good people have helped me to correctly document my family's genealogy. I have learned so much with their generous help, offering leads, links to sources, and practical suggestions that will stand the test of time. A big thank you to all Wiki Tree Genealogists!
I hope to make a small difference in the world by leaving it a bit better than I found it.

I had the information but hadn't gotten to it. Your post focused by attention. I still need to put the WikiTree template for military service on it but it's ok if you beat me to it! :)

Not all tribes have a subproject. Here are the cayehories. All tribes need categories so let me know if you need one that isn't there. I am still adding them. You will find the categories for tribes here.
