To Ray, Denise, Pam, Sheri, and all the family. Please know that Jackie and I are with you in spirit and love during this time. I know with her faith that she is now in peace and comfort with the Lord.
My “Aunt Nancy” was always so kind, supportive and loving to me during my childhood. This was so valuable to me given the family challenges, stresses, and instability that arose from my mom’s struggle with her mental illness disease. Aunt Nancy was an important relationship for me of stability, caring, and love during my growing up years. When we were together at the Lake or Fort Wayne, she was so kind, uplifting, and genuinely interested in me and how I was doing in school, life, etc. She truly cared about what was happening in my life and celebrated and encouraged my progress and accomplishments with me. No matter how busy she was at big family events, she always made time to talk with me. I will remember her for her happy nature, that laugh of hers, and the priority she put on family.
Our prayers are with the family for God to provide peace and comfort in the passing of a great woman of our family. Nancy was blessed to be surrounded by such tremendous family care and love during her decline over the years. Take comfort in knowing the family cared for her in an exceptional way, bringing her joy, dignity, and peace.
We are making a donation to Parkview Home Health & Hospice to honor Nancy.
We love you all! Roger and Jackie Rosenberger

To all the family members, Terry and I are very sorry to hear about "Aunt Nancy" passing. I have so many great memories of her at holidays and at the lake in Angola. She was always so cheerful, fun, and giving. I always looked forward to seeing her when we visited Fort Wayne. The Motown music she enjoyed back when I was young, the way she always brought great food/snacks, and her infectious laugh...all make me smile when I think of her. I admired her for her intelligence, cheerfulness, compassion, and her commitment to her family.
Our prayers go out to you as you grieve, and we wish you peace as you focus on all the wonderful memories you have of her.
