I am so sorry for your loss................when we were allowed inside of of Mill Pond, I would take Mary Scobee (also resident Mill Pond) to visit with Nancy in the dining room. Mary really loved sitting with Nancy and talking with her.

Many thanks to Nancy for all the years of safely delivering our kids as well as many others to school day after day and year after year! I think she also hauled some of our grandkids when they would come to our house after school. If there was a snow delay or she had bus problems and was going to be a bit late, she would call and let us know. She was one of the best when it came to bus drivers!

My heart goes out to Nancy's family as they grieve the loss of their loving wife, mother, and grandmother. I have such fond memories of Nancy remembering what a wonderful neighbor and friend she was to my family for the decades they lived near each other. She will be missed by all who knew her.
