Obituary for Nancy K Mulder

On Wednesday, April 28, 2021, Nancy Kay Mulder, went home to be with the Lord. Nancy was born on November 26, 1960, in Clio, Michigan, to Paul and Ardyth (Barber) Eldridge. She received her Applied Theology and Church Ministries degree from Moody Bible Institute in 1983. Nancy lived out her faith by sharing the Gospel in the Clio area before coming to Lansing, Michigan, in 1985 and becoming a member of Riverview Church.
On October 7, 1995, Nancy married Joe Henry Mulder, making their home in Grand Ledge, Michigan, and leading bible classes at Oneida Gospel Church. Nancy worked in the office of Joseph R. Brooks of Fairhaven Financial Advisory, which she enjoyed before her battle with Multiple Sclerosis made it impossible to continue.
She enjoyed playing the piano, especially at church weddings, and sending greeting cards to friends and family. People lovingly called her the card lady, sending cards for all occasions. Her favorite, writing messages of encouragement, continued despite losing the ability to write using her right hand. She learned to write with her left. Nancy’s faith in Jesus Christ never left her and she wanted others to know the healing power that comes with having a relationship with a loving God. She believed in the wisdom found in the Bible and would send inspiring verses to those who God stirred in her heart. Her faith in God started at an early age. She said she learned to read by memorizing bible verses, repeating them in Sunday school to the amazement of her father and mother. Nancy missed the enjoyment of playing the piano and was resigned to listening to others for the rest of her earthly life. The next time you hear a beautiful piano piece, remember her loving fingers touching the keys. You may be listening to her playing in Heaven.
Nancy’s parents encouraged her involvement with the church and drove her to the several churches she attended until she learned how to drive. Nancy loved her Oldsmobiles! But, her passion in life was her faith, and she devoted her time to activities where she could share this faith with others. Teens for Christ was one of many, traveling with a group of teens sharing the gospel with other teens. While attending Moody, Nancy volunteered to play piano for the homeless at an intercity Chicago homeless shelter, gaining empathy for the experiences of humanity. Her cheerful attitude to life’s endeavors, which we all admired in her, was distinctly due to her understanding both the experience of Jesus’ death and the experiences of humanity.
In her later years, Nancy would have to share her faith from her bedside and the many cards she sent to loved ones. While talking with family and friends about Nancy’s life, the thing that stands out the most was her ability to rise above her illness and encourage others thru her faith in Jesus Christ.
Nancy will be missed by many. She was preceded in death by her father, Paul Lucion Eldridge, her mother, Ardyth Gertrude Barber Eldridge, and her brother, David Paul Eldridge. She is survived by her loving husband, Joe; her sister, Judy and her spouse, Jay Irwin, and their son Aaron, and his spouse, Megan; her sister-in-law, Pat Eldridge and her children, Heather and Nicole, and Heather spouse, John; her grand nieces and nephews, and several aunts, uncles, and cousins; her sisters in law’s, Pat, Marsha, Lee, Ruth, and Jill; her brothers in law’s, David and Darrell; niece, Katie Mulder; and her Godchildren, Jennifer and Chad, who she loved dearly. She will also be missed by her many friends, and among them, Melody, Karen, Jeff, Mike, Loretta, Lara, Joe, Sara, Jackie and Bill.
Nancy always cherished her times with the people who visited her in our home and the many cards and letters she received over the years. She loved you all. A visitation and celebration of Nancy’s life will be held on Sunday, May 16th, 2021, at Peters and Murray Funeral Home on 301 East Jefferson St., Grand Ledge, Michigan, with visitation at 2 p.m and memorial service at 4:00 p.m. Donations may be sent to The Widow’s Friend, P.O.
