To my big brother and family I am so heart broken at the loss of my sweet, loving sister in law. There are so many memories but the one that stands out is the time we all spent New Years Eve in Massachusetts! We had so much fun and laughs! The play off bills game in the dumpy hotel room!!
I will always hold a spot in my heart for Nancy and her courageous fight! We will all miss her but we know she is at peace now! My memories will keep us together forever!
All my love

Mark and Family,

I am so sorry to hear of Nancy's passing. I have fond memories of her in knitting class at Misty Hollow. Knitting was her therapy, her sanity, and her socialization. I know how important knitting nights were to her. She was a great lady.

All my best,

Colleen Ayers
