Obituary for Nancy Jane Byram

Nancy Jane (Sponsler) Byram of Boerne, Texas was born in Muskogee, Oklahoma on November 23, 1932 to Amick Charles Sponsler and Esther Marie Stanton Sponsler as the youngest of three children. Nancy grew up in Muskogee, Oklahoma and Houston, Texas along with her two siblings, Lenore and Stanton. She studied music at Baylor University where she met and fell in love with David Paul Byram whom she married on February 29, 1952. They were married for 63 years until Paul’s passing on August 7, 2015. They were partners in public ministry for 32 years including 17 years in the military chaplaincy. Nancy passed away in Loveland, Colorado on May 29, 2018 at the age of 85.

Nancy’s life is marked by her love of music, which blossomed at a very early age. She taught piano and voice and led church and Air Force chapel choirs. While stationed in Europe, her choirs won many prestigious awards.

She also had a deep and sincere love of people and of all of God’s natural wonders. She never missed an opportunity to encourage people, to show kindness and to bring a joyful and happy countenance to everyone she met. Every day she made it her practice to look, walk, listen and appreciate all of God’s creation as if it were new every morning.
She also loved Israel, having visited 19 times, many of those as the tour leader.

Nancy is survived by her three children: Judy Lynne Viccellio, David Amick Byram, and Danny Mark Byram and daughters-in-law Cassie Byram and Angela Byram. She was “Nana” or “Nanny” to eight grandchildren: Adrian, Aaron, Amick, Jonathan, Benjamin, Jeremy, Corina, and Alisha, and five great grandchildren: Henry, Charlie, Jones, Reuben and Rhett.

A Memorial Service will be held at 10 am on Saturday June 9th at the First Baptist Church, Boerne, TX. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Nancy’s memory to Neot Kedumim (a Biblical Landscape Preserve) in Israel. This was one of Nancy’s favorite places to visit when traveling to Israel.
