I checked for Nancy's obituary in the Falls City newspapers of the time. Falls City is seven miles from Salem and the papers occasionally gave out-of-town obituaries. I didn't find Nancy mentioned.
Salem did have a newspaper, the Salem Advertiser, that published from April 1878 until at least June 1880. Her obituary should be listed. My local library doesn't have any copies, but they are available at the Nebraska State Historical Society in Lincoln on microfilm. The Advertiser was notable as its editor at the time was the youngest in the state, seventeen years old in 1880.
