Nancy was born on February 9, 1957, in Elmhurst IL, to Nat Gordon Goodwin and Wanda Belle Goodwin. She spent her early childhood living in Nebraska, Iowa, and Illinois. She spent her High School years in Schaumburg, IL. Nancy went to college at Iowa State University in Ames, IA, and graduated with a B.F.A. in Interior Design. There, she also met her future husband, Steven David Jones. She married Steven Jones on July 14, 1979. She and Steven moved to Peoria, IL soon after.
