Nancy Lynn Guerrant, 66, passed peacefully November 24, 2020 at Baptist Health in Louisville following an extended illness. She was born October 12, 1954 in Danville, daughter of Laura Alice McGuire Guerrant and the late Richard Putney Guerrant Jr. Nancy, a graduate of Waggener High School in Louisville, earned her Bachelor of Science and Medical Technology degrees from the University of Louisville. Nancy dedicated her entire career to Norton Hospital working as a Medical Technologist. A self-taught artist like her uncle Chauncey Alcock, Nancy’s artistry extended to being a skilled seamstress, excellent cook and reknowned gift wrapper. Navigating through life with a book in hand and her signature “top knot” hairdo, she enjoyed the four “Fs”—family, fishing, football and food. She is survived by her mother, Laura M. Guerrant; sisters, Mary McGuire Guerrant Baker of Danville and Rebecca Anne Guerrant of Louisville; brothers, Richard Putney (Judith) Guerrant III of Covington, TN and Ted McGuire (Mary Jane) Guerrant of Atlanta, GA, and several nieces, nephews, cousins and one great-nephew. A private graveside service will be at Bellevue Cemetery. Rev Caroline Kelley will officiate. Honorary pallbearers will be Richard, Ryland, William, and Rob Byrd. Memorial donations are suggested to Heritage Hospice of Danville or the Louisville Humane Society. Please sign the online guestbook or send a Hug from Home.

Memories Timeline


  1. It\’s been said, \”it\’s a fearful thing to love what death can touch.\” But it\’s also true that we can\’t forget people who gave us so much to remember (Grandad, and now Nancy). Love to you all.

  2. We will miss you, Miss Nancy. You were the best neighbor a family could have. Thanks for putting up with us throughout the years. Rest In Peace.

  3. We’ll be thinking of all the family today and sending virtual hugs from afar. I’ll cherish memories of “Little Nancy” in our childhood and Cissy and I both will remember wonderful conversations at more recent gatherings. So sorry for the loss to all the family.

  4. So sorry to hear of Nancy’s passing. I worked with her at Audubon and with her dad Dick while he was at Methodist Hospital when he was studying Theology in Louisville. Great people! Prayers go out to the family during this time.

  5. I am so sorry to hear of Nancy\’s passing. I graduated from Waggener with her and she was my sister-in-law for a few years.

  6. I\’m so sorry to hear of Nancy\’s passing. I worked with her at Norton Children\’s Hospital for many years. She was a very good Tech and an excellent co-worker. I enjoyed working alongside her and her smile always brightened the day for us all. I will always remember her fondly. There are so few of us Medical Technologists left, it is hard to lose anyone, but Nancy\’s loss is especially hard.

  7. So sorry to learn of Nancy\’s passing. We had many stimulating conversations and shared meals. She made wonderful candied pecans that my grandson, Jet, and I enjoyed at Christmas. She was a kind and generous neighbor.

  8. I just saw this!! I\’ve known Nancy since high school. Mary, I am so sorry for your loss, you were such a good friend. Lost track yrs ago. I live in TN now.
