Nancy was a dear friend and a gift to so many people. We shared wonderful visits and meals with Nan and Kaye when we were neighbors with them in Colorado during the summers. We continued the beautiful friendship through phone calls and visits throughout the years. Nan was kind to everyone and she and Kaye helped anyone they could. Listening to their stories was a treasure and their was a laugh or two in each one. Nan gave dignity and kindness to all. I miss hearing her sweet voice on the phone and mourn her passing with Kaye.

I met Aunt Nan near the beginning of 2017 after we moved into the neighborhood. I quickly learned to love Aunt Nan and Aunt Kaye and I appreciated all of the conversations and time spent with them.
Aunt Nan was a precious soul and I appreciated her loving on us and our babies as if they were her own grandbabies. She was proud of her work as a physical therapist, and the knowledge that she imparted always fascinated me.
So very grateful to have known and loved Aunt Nan! I know she and my mom are meeting and having such a wonderful conversation! I can’t wait to hug her neck again in glory!

I first met Nan years ago when a good friend of mine, Kaye Reeves, and I played on a Lubbock softball team. Kaye was involved in a terrible car accident one spring and her recovery from injuries involved weeks of excellent PT care from Nan. She recovered beautifully and returned to playing softball that following summer and Nan became a big fan of our team that summer and for many to follow. The three of us remained good friends and kept in touch throughout our adult lives and even when I moved to Wimberley in the Hill Country many years ago, she, Kaye and other friends made several visits , through those years, the latest being this past October.

Nan was a loving person, always eager to do good things for others. She filled her life with family, friends, nature, fun and the love of God. There was always had an aura about her that she was happiest when making others happy. That could be in helping with the needs of others or telling fun stories around a campfire In Lake City. Colorado.

May God be proud of her life, welcome her into his kingdom and bless her throughout eternity as she has blessed others.

Truly the world has lost a special and dear woman who made a difference
in this world. She will be missed.

When my son, Chris, was born, he had spina bifida, and as he got older, he needed physical therapy. Dr. Gordon Mayes recommended Nancy, so we made an appointment and went to see her. Chris captured her heart right away, and he liked her very much, too. As time went by, she introduced us to another family who also had a child with spina bifida. Modesto and Chris hit it off and became not only pt partners, but best friends. Nancy invited them both to the Pilot Club Christmas parties, and this club helped these boys in various ways. Nancy was a guiding light for these boys and our families. We loved her dearly. ❤

My first memory of Nancy is observing her work when I was in Physical Therapy school back in the 80’s. I was so excited to get to know her when I joined The Pilot Club several years ago. She loved discussing her PT memories and told me how she wished she could still be working! I know she helped many during her long career. Such a great lady who will be missed by many.
