Nancy’s husband Barry was my school bus driver for many years. We then moved into the PET neighbour and got to know Nancy as well. Then after leaving school we’d occasionally bump into them both at the superstore or other shops in that plaza! They were a wonderful couple with a deep love for children and their community. Thank you Nancy for all your years of work and love. You will be so missed.

The kindest most caring crossing guard the world has ever seen, but she was more than that. She was an after school mother making sure all her little kids got home safely, she was there to ask you how your math test was and she was there when you needed a hug. Years and years after graduating from public school, she still knew all of our faces and names and always asked us how we were. Pierre Elliot Trudeau Public school lost a tremendous staff member. RIP Nancy, crossing your road will never be the same ❤️

To my kids, Nancy was like an angel standing at her Beatrice and Ashgrove Corner. We could always tell the days Nancy was not there well before the corner. The whistle sounded different and my kids faces were disappointed. Nancy brightened our days. Always had a sharp eye on every child coming to her corner . She is a legend, RiP sweet Angel. Always had time for a chat, her love the the children was never doubted

Words can’t express the sadness we felt when we heard this news. Nancy was an angel who looked after our kids for many years. Making sure that everyone made it to school and home safely again. My boys will miss talking with you on their way to and from school and having you stop for a chat as you walked your puppy. You have enriched the lives of so many and your presence in the community will not be forgotten. Our condolences to the family. Rest In Peace Nancy.

Rest In Peace sweet lady. You have kept our children safe for years and were such a wonderful influence on them, and to all the families in the Pierre Elliott Trudeau school district. The kids would be so excited to see you at the beginning of each school year, and to be greeted on the last day of school with freezies and kind words to go into the summer remembering. They loved seeing you walking in the neighbourhood with your puppy outside of school hours and would always point out “where Nancy lives”. You were a huge part in our childrens’ childhoods and we will never forget you. May you be out of pain now and may you watch down on all the children as they grow into wonderful people, that you had part in. Thinking of your entire family during this extremely difficult time also ❤️
