Dear Lobell family,
I am deeply saddened by the loss that you and your family have encountered. Nancy and I met at RCDS 20 years ago. We shared some fun moments at the OBC. We were not very close, but when we would see each other at the locker room at ATC We would laugh about current events and end our conversation about our children. She would dash off to her yoga class.
She was a wonderful woman with a huge heart. I lost my mother when I was twenty years old. She is always with me. Nancy will always be watching over you. Keep her alive in your hearts and in your minds. Please accept my heartfelt condolences. Rest in peace beautiful Nancy.

Nancy was in many of the yoga classes I subbed regularly at TAC. What I remember best about her besides her dedication to her yoga classes was her smile. So very sorry for the loss of a very lovely lady. Prayers for her family.

I am heartbroken about Nancy’s death. I haven’t seen her or even spoken to her in several years but our children grew up together for many years and she was a dear friend. We participated in school, community and social activities for years. We practiced yoga together and I always loved her. Her smile was so beautiful and warm and without pretense and just sincere and came from such a loving place. She was so positive and energetic and funny and friendly to all. I can’t imagine how her family can go on without her but I pray for them to find the strength from her memories and love. She would never want anyone to suffer because of her. She loved her family and her friends. She will be deeply missed by all who knew her. Rest In Peace dear Nancy. My deepest sympathy and prayers go to Mark, Marshall and Marian and Diane and her family. God Bless you all. Love, Debbie Raia

Nancy, a beautiful friend to all. Someone who truly followed the notion that life is a gift and we have to enjoy it each and every day.
Her gorgeous smile and infectious laugh lighted a room.
Years ago, when My son and I first moved to this area and we didn’t know a soul, Nancy and her family ‘took us in’.
We were invited to their Friday night dinners at their lovely home, every holiday, many holidays we spent sharing a meal at their house. And in the summers we were always invited to Ocean Beach Club.
Nancy and I also belonged to our own ‘Pisces club’ at Rumson Country Day School. Which consisted of a few moms who all celebrated their birthdays around the same time.
We shared many lunches, drinks, tons of smiles and laughs.
Nancy was one of those people who was always so full of warmth, kindness and life.
Nancy, May the angels sing to you in the most joyous way. May you Rest In Peace. And may your loving husband Marc, beautiful kids Marshall and Marian, your sister Diane and the rest of your family & friends find some comfort in knowing that you enjoyed your time here on earth and that your spirit lives on in all the lives you’ve inspired and touched.
Rest In Peace lovely lady.
I always loved this saying:
‘We never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought, decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love.'
Cherish your loved ones, Make your hugs long and say "I love you" every day. ღ xoxo

For the past 7 summers I’ve had the privilege of coaching Nancy in tennis.She had an infectious smile and calmness that will never be forgotten. As a member of our ladies summer team, Nancy never questioned who she played doubles with, or what position she was asked to play. she just loved the game, and the camaraderie with everyone she came in contact with. Aside from tennis, Nancy was always enjoying OBC, no matter the weather, Nancy was their 99% of the time! She seemed to be at peace when she was there, and she always had a smile!
I will miss you Nancy Lobell, I will miss our tennis talks , lessons and most of all oir laughs and your smile. I will miss most of all , getting you potato chips during your match play, cause that’s what you always asked for. It will not be the same with out you, I huge piece of OBC was taken away from US way to soon .
R.I.P. Nancy Lobell rainy weekdays at obc will not be the same.

I have been fortunate to have the Lobell family as neighbors on Colonial Ridge Road in Vermont. Nancy's vivacious, kind spirit lit up the hill whenever she was here. Her joy in life was infectious and she brought happiness into the lives of all who knew her. I will so miss seeing her smile as she enjoyed life here on the hill. Soar on my friend...

Marc, Marshall, and Marian- I am heartbroken for you. Please let me know if I can do anything to help you through these dark days.

Nancy brought genuine love and warmth to every experience. Our family is so lucky to be a part of the Lobell extended family and friends. Nancy brought together friends from all parts of her life and helped to create new and lasting bonds and friendships for us all. What a privilege and pleasure to be part of her life and legacy.

With Love,

& Bill
