Always remember that it is very nice to be important but it is more important to be nice. This was the best lesson I learned in my six years while working with this wonderful woman. Gene and I love you Nancy. Our love to all of the family. Rest in peace Miss Nancy.

Nancy will be missed by all who loved and cared for her. When visiting, I could always count on her to turn the television to football as she and Alexa would watch it with us without argument.

So sorry for your loss. Nancy was a friend from high school (we were co-editors of our yearbook) In later years our HS girls had a "lunch bunch" monthly gathering that kept us in touch .. always looked forward to seeing Nancy. She will be missed by so many, always had a smile and a good word for everyone.
