Funeral Notices


Loving wife, sister, mother, grandmother and friend, passed away July 26, 2021. Nancy was born October 17, 1948 in Ness City, Kansas. Growing up on a farm, she had many adventures with her two older brothers, Bob and J.C. After graduating with a bachelor degree in Physical Education from Kansas State University, Nancy married Bob Stull and began her journey in college football. Beginning with Kent State Football, Bob and Nancy traveled the country. At Kent State, Nancy worked as a high school teacher and successful track coach. Eventually they ended with perennial national contender, University of Washington and Head Coach Don James. When Nancy reached Seattle, she found a new passion selling real estate.

During Nancy’s varied Real Estate career, she ended up with her own real estate firm in Honolulu, TY Realty Inc. She established contacts with many military contractors at Pearl Harbor and developed numerous lifelong friends around the country. The sacrifice of those individuals made her proud to be an American. She loved our country and especially the people that served to protect our freedom. By creating a "home away from home" for those military contractors, Nancy created a thriving and successful business.

Nancy loved Hawaii and realized that she had found paradise. In 1990, she married Steven Yamamoto and they were blessed with a beautiful daughter, Tracey. Tracey got married and four grandchildren followed. Nancy became the typical doting grandmother. Her life revolved around her grandchildren and she couldn’t be happier.

Nancy loved life. Her philosophy of life was "Live happy, stay happy". She traveled to numerous countries and had amazing adventures, but she realized that the United States has some of the greatest wonders of the world. Of course, there were always side trips to Caesar’s in Las Vegas, where she was always a winner playing the slots. Being a sport’s junky, attending the Super Bowl in Miami with her family was one of her recent highlights. "Go Kansas City Chiefs!"

Nancy is survived by husband Steve and daughter Tracey (Jeff Middleton), four grandchildren: Nainoa, Weslee, Robby and Kalia. Nancy is also survived by brother JC and Bob Humburg; nieces Nichol and Heridy and nephew Seren. Service was held August 7th.
