Such a nice woman. I had the pleasure of working with her at Walmart she always had a smile on her face and always a kind thing to say even when the day was extremely busy and stressful. RIP Nancy.

I remember when we all had our exchange students and how welcoming Nancy was to all of us at the house.
Working together at Manchester School, and the way that she would try not to laugh at some foolishness that we were involved in, but then would burst out giggling in spite of trying to keep a straight face.
Your mom lives on in each of your hearts. May your memories bring you comfort during this difficult time.

Oh Dear Nancy. My memories of you are energetic, active, and sociable. You were the first person to knock on our door when we became neighbors so many years ago, and then instantly became friends. You made me smile then, and every time I think of you I will continue to smile. <3
I am blessed to have known you.
