Lakana "Nancy" Bixler was taken by God on May 14th, 2021 at Methodiest Hospital ICU in Philadelphia, PA. She fought for nearly 3 weeks in the ICU, but her body was not strong enough to house her spirit and she left this world. She was taken before her time by Covid-19.
Born to her father Ja Ou Misere by her beloved mother Na-Si in Burma on October 7, 1960. Nancy is survived by her four daughters Soranrassamee (A), Sirintararut (Eddy), Amelia (Mimi) and Lakana (Emma). And by her three grandchilderen Kathy, Samantha and Jamie. And her great-grandchild Sahaj.
Nancy's early childhood years were spent in Chiang Rai Providence, Thailand where she finished high school with honors. She was proficient in foreign languages and very artistic.
Later in her life, she moved Philadelphia, PA where she attend night school to learn English and worked at Dunkin Dounuts during the day, on Broad Street.
She spent most of her working years at the Defense Personnel Support Center where she made military uniforms as a seamstress.
She will be greatly missed, especially by her second family at the Church of the Salavation Army, where she was an active member who enjoyed many social events with her friends.
She will be remembered for her laugh, her love of life and the million memories that she has gifted every person she ever came into contact with. She was a lover of gardening, a fantastic dancer, a skilled seamstress and a collecter of shoes! She was an avid fisher, a lover of hand bags and a menace behind the wheel. Her one liners and sharp wips will be greatly missed.
