1985 Lincoln Mark VII

Engine Cooling problem
1985 Lincoln Mark VII V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 93000 miles

the other day I was depositing my check at the bank and when I looked up at my hood I noticed a great plume of smoke rising from my car. I pulled over in the parking lot, popped the hood, and noticed what seemed to be coolant leaking I always thought this to be a sign of a bad water pump. After later trouble shooting though I noticed that my radiator fan was not blowing either. Would a bad water pump cause my fan to stop, or do you think its just a bad relay?
