Nancy was a lovely lady. I never met anyone so gentle and kind to everyone. her quilt work was beautiful, and she loved to make quilts for the special people in her life. It was my privilege to share that joy with her.

What a beautiful elegant lady! Nancy and I first met in 1945 in Ms. Steele's first grade class at Villa Heights School. She was always a kind friend through our school years graduating in 1957 from Central High. Jack and family stay strong! The love, grace, and hope of Christ surround and embrace you and yours.

Nancy was my secretary at Fiber Industries Inc. (Later Hoechst Celanese)in the late sixties and early seventies. She was superb at any task that was set her. Wonderful willing personality and an absolute delight to be associated with her. I am so sad about her passing but have the most enduring memories.
Jack and family my heartfelt condolences.
