Nancy Buckner


February 15th
Nancy Clodfelter Buckner, age 81, of Syracuse, Indiana, passed away at her home on February
15, 2024. She was an incredibly strong woman but that damn cancer was stronger.
She was born on April 27, 1942 to Richard and Helen Clodfelter in Goshen and grew up in
Middlebury.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Richard and Helen and her brother Larry Clodfelter.
Surviving are her children, Christopher and Ashley. Grandchildren, Alexa, Dylan, Drew and
Jase. Nephews, Dan and Mike and niece Shelly.
Shortly after graduating she left the small town life for Chicago and eventually ended up in Los
Angeles where she married Jim Buckner.
She worked for Capitol Records and most of the time was located in the famous round Capitol
building in Hollywood. Her stories of life at Capitol were endlessly entertaining and we all lost
track of all the artists she met and hung out with. Just a week before her death she was on the
phone with one of her best friends out there and they were reminiscing over the night they went
out drinking with Bob Seger. What a life!
Eventually she decided to retire and moved to a house on Syracuse Lake where she relaxed and
enjoyed life and especially grandchildren.  Services will be held on Friday, February 23, 2024 at
6 PM at the Eastlund Funeral Home, with calling 1 hour prior.  Memorial contributions may be
made to the Syracuse American Legion in Nancy’s memory.
