Kevin and family so sorry for your loss. My family lived next door to you in Lakeside. Nancy was so kind. I remember staying with her when my Dad had a heart attack. I was only 7 or so and she made me feel so comfortable and I felt so at home. She always had a smile . Halloween she would dress up as a witch! Everyone would come to see her!!! Your memories will always be with you and all of us she ever met.

When I was a little girl Nancy was our next door neighbor. She was the coolest neighbor. Every Halloween she would make candied apples & dress up as a witch. People came from all over just to see her dressed up & get one of those wonderful candied apples.

One time a baby squirrel fell out of its nest & the mommy rejected it. She saved that baby & would feed it with a small dropper. We would go over & she would let us watch. She released him when he was big enough.

Nancy was one the kindest, sweetest persons one could ever meet. I’m sure anyone she meet she left a found memory with them. RIP Nancy & prayers to her family & friends.

Kevin, I was your day care teacher when you were 4 years old...I remember your mom so very well...She was always happy even though she had health issues....She brought the entire staff at Overbrook Presbyterian Church little white pots of delicious chocolate cream. You were such a fun little boy and I can imagine you as a fine man as an adult.....I am so sorry for your loss. Marjorie Sadler Patterson
