The very first time I met Nancy was at the Appleton, WI airport. I had to pick her up and bring her back to Stevens Point. Julie Larson & Howard Campball gave me a description of what she looked like. Nancy was the last person off the plane and when I saw her, I opened my arms (like everybody else) and said "Nancy, I'm so glad to see you", even though I had never met her. We were close friends from that day forward. I always thought of her as my big sister. She was the best! I will miss her dearly. My sympathy to Carleen and your family.

My condolences to Carleen. Your Mother was a great lady and a true friend. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her. She was an angel on earth, now she is spreading her love in heaven. She was truly loved.

Nancy, you are a friend and a mentor and I will miss you. You taught me much and I am saddened we won't converse anymore. I hope the Lord is hugging you tight. I know I would if you were here. May God bless you always.
Carleen, our prayers are with you. May your pain be eased knowing that your Mom is with the Lord.

Carleen and family, you have my deepest sympathy for your loss. I had the opportunity of meeting Nancy and Marie in the 50's visiting New York for their vacation. I was able to keep in touch with Nancy by email and phone, that I will miss.

Carleen, My deepest condolences to you and your family on the loss of Nancy, my cousin. When I was a small child, I was always so excited when my grandfaher, Oscar Larson, would annouce that the "twins" were coming for a visit. How I idolized both Nancy and Marie! I never told Nancy that little secret of mine, but somehow I just know she realized how much I loved and admired her. Love and prayers, Dyanna Bentley, Scottsdale, AZ

I was very fortunate to know Nancy for a brief time. She was a ray of light, always there with a smile and a joke to brighten your day. Nancy was a joy to be around, and her laughter and kindness were absolutely infectious.

Carleen and family, you have my deepest sympathy for your loss, and my heart aches for you. I hope that you are able to find solace in what I'm sure are countless fond memories of celebrations, adventures, and laughter shared. May your joyful recollections eclipse your pain as you move forward.

I know that Nancy touched the lives of many people, and I consider myself very lucky to be one of them. Her love and light will live on in each one of us. A spirit like hers can never die.
