Saddened to learn of Nancy's death. We were born 6 months apart and closely linked on Nanny Dowd's chain of many descendants.
Lost touch over the years but have fond memories of the Dowd-Gleason-Noland-Eisenger get togethers over the years. Enjoyed the tribute video to Nancy. I'm sure her beautiful daughters and grandchildren brought her and Larry much joy! My condolences on your loss .

I first met Nancy in August, 1984 when I began working with her. What stands out most about her for me, is her compassion. Over the years her hand has been extended to me in love and friendship in my own dark times. Even most recently she selflessly extended friendship, great compassion, determination and love to me and a member of my family. I will continue to say a prayer in memory of her beautiful spirit. She will not be forgotten in my family. Thank you Lord for Nancy for being a part of my life.

Nancy was a strong, intelligent and genuine individual and friend. We enjoyed a friendship with her for most of our lives. Her beautiful smile and compassionate nature made her so special. She had the gift of gab and was a great conversationalist. We admired her keen mind and her perseverance as she fought her illness and respected her ability as an attorney. She will be greatly missed.
