SALEM, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – Nancy E. Yorlano, 63, passed away Saturday, April 13, 2019, following a lengthy, hard-fought battle with leukemia.
Nancy was born March 16, 1956, to Alice Brain and the late Floyd Brain, Jr.
In addition to her mother, she is survived by loving husband, Anthony Yorlano; son, Jason (Megan) Ball; grandchildren, Lauren and Brandon Ball; siblings, Debra (Wayne) Graham, Carol (the late Ernie) Aegerter, Gerry (Melanie) Brain and many nieces, nephews and friends.
Nancy graduated from West Branch High School in 1974.
She spent many years in retail management, including a long stint at the Murphy Mart/Ames stores in Salem and several years as the store manager at Dunham’s Sports in Alliance. She developed many friendships during her career.
Nancy also appreciated the friendships she developed while attending First Brethren Church in North Georgetown.
She enjoyed visiting the beach, watching the Cleveland Indians and most of all, spending time with friends and family; especially being Gramma. No matter what role Nancy played in the lives of those around her, friend, aunt, sister, daughter, mother, grandmother or wife, she was hard-working, tough, caring and selfless. She will be dearly missed.
The family would like to thank Dr. Sobecks and the entire team of doctors, nurses and staff at the Cleveland Clinic, for all of the wonderful care they provided her as she bravely fought these last four years.
