Nancy was beautiful person inside and out she was like one of my second mothers. I spent my teenage years at their house I was Tonda’s best friend and also a friend of Toni’s, Nancy always treated me like one of her kids. I remember all of us making trips to Mountainhome and also we would make trips on the weekends to the I30 speedway they always included me in their trips. A lot of great memories she will be missed dearly. Tonda and Toni you are in my thoughts and prayers I am so sorry for your loss she was a very wonderful loving beautiful person.

She was always so kind, when she worked at the bank she saved my rear many times by showing me and giving me advice on how to manage our money. I loved hearing her speak of her family she loved them dearly. She definitely was someone to be admired. She will be missed, fly high sweet lady.

She was the best Sister-in-law. I loved her very much. I have so,,,,,,,,many good memories she would laugh so hard at my sister and I when we were being goofy together that she would cry,, it would take to long to write it all down.

Rest in peace my sis-n-law,no more pain,no more sorrow.
