Nancy Pearl Ditto Kidd, 78, of Kensett, Ark, lovingly known as “Nanny” to many, left this world to spend eternity with her Lord and Savior on Friday, Sept. 11, 2020.

Nancy was born in Georgetown, Ark., on Nov. 11, 1941, to the late Willie and Catherine Turner Ditto. She was a member of the Georgetown Church of God of Prophecy. Nancy and her husband, LeRoy, were the owners of Kidd Fish Market in Kensett for many years. She was best known for her ability to wield a knife to cut up many a pound of fish.

She is survived by one son, Richard Kidd (Nikki) of Searcy, and two stepsons, Kenny Kidd (Lisa) of Beebe and Perry Kidd (Debra); two special daughters, Brandon Kidd of Searcy and Candy Vanpelt of Judsonia; five grandchildren, Mason, Tera, Trevor, Christopher and Monica; five great-grandchildren, Trace, Trisdon, Amelia, Bentlie and Raini; one sister, Jerlean Overstreet (Jack) of Georgetown; and a host of nieces and nephews who all held a special place in her heart. She is preceded in death by her husband, LeRoy Kidd; two brothers, Robert and Homer Ditto; one sister, Dolly Holloway; and one stillborn sibling known as Baby Ditto. Nancy was one of the most giving and loving people you would ever meet. To know her was to love her. She will be greatly missed and held in our hearts till we will all meet again.

Visitation will be Thursday, Sept. 17, from 6-8 p.m. at Searcy McEuen Funeral Home. Funeral service will be Friday, Sept. 18, at 2 p.m. at Searcy McEuen. Burial will follow at Georgetown Cemetery.
