Where do I start sharing about the 35 year friendship as neighbors that became a family relationship .Nancy was one of a kind person, she had passion for life,for her family,her boys ,her politics ,her sports ,her car ,for hurting people and her beliefs . We were drive way friends ,late night messenger friends ,texting friends and we were neighbors who watched out for each other ! We verbally fixed the problems of the world ,our families and each other . She accepted people as they were,she saw the glass half full and she made lemonade out of lemons and she never complained about her health and she would do for you yet did not want to bother about her and she loved my desserts and we loved her white beans and ham and when we moved she understood yet she always told me laughingly how much she disliked it and how much she missed watching over Bobby and I . I will miss her smile, her humor and her laughter. I will miss praying for her . When you laugh with someone and then you cry freely with that person, that is a friendship that comes one time in a person 's life . She was so proud of her boys, she loved her grands and she was in awe of Jimmy's work ethics ,his energy and his generosity . Rest in peace sweet Nancy ! You fought a long battle and now you walk the streets of gold. We trust that God will comfort the family, all the friends and Bobby and I . Miss you already !

When I think of Nancy I can't help but smile. She was always happy. She had a beautiful smile and a great sense of humor. She didn't sweat the small stuff. She loved to have fun and was fun to be around. I can't remember a time when I was in Nancy's presence that I didn't have a good laugh. I remember talking to Nancy about how I loved go running. Nancy's response was, "Well if you ever see me running down the road, stop because something is wrong or someone is chasing me." Nancy enjoyed life to its fullest. Her smile, her laughter, the sound of her voice will forever be missed. I know Nancy is in a better place now and she will forever will be watching over the rest of us. We love you!

Hobert and I are so sorry for your loss.
Nancy was a blessing to all that knew her.
My fondest memories of Nancy was serving on the Board of Directors of Mt. Juliet football league. We had a great time together.
Also going to her house almost every morning after we dropped our kids off at school at DCA. We would sit downstairs and drink coffee and solve all the problems in the world!
She touched a lot of people with her genuine kindness and love. She will be missed..

Nancy was, without a doubt, one of the most vivacious persons I have ever known. Never saw her without a smile or an offer to
lend a hand if needed. Treasure your memories.

My dealings with Nancy started at the Mt. Juliet Youth Sports at the Charlie Daniels Park.
A more caring person can not be found that was very active in all activities at the Mt. Juliet Youth Sports Football program.
Many fond memories of her assistance, cooperation, & thoughts for the youth.
