Treasurer extraordinaire, Nancy Northup, will be missed by the almost 100+ members of our Great Lakes Volvo Club. We recently had a write up in a recent Rolling Magazine honoring the contributions of both John and Nancy Northup, who were cornerstones of this club and one of the main reasons we have done so very well. We wish John and his family the very best and know that many of us will keep you all in our thoughts.

I also worked with Nancy at Immuno and Baxter. She was a wonderful coworker who always had a smile on her face and a nice word to say. The last time I saw her, was at a little get together of former Baxter employees, and it was really great to see her. My thoughts and prayers go to the family, for the loss of this great lady.

Nancy and I worked closely together for many years at Immuno and Baxter. I enjoyed every minute of it! At first she helped me understand my benefits and later we got to work more closely on organizing and improving the training program for the plant. She was gifted in many ways: very organized, an Excel Guru (I still have not met many others who come close to her formula's and pivot tables!), and a pleasure to work with every day! She made me look good and I will never forget that.
But above all that, she was a good person who loved her husband, her son's and brought joy the people around her. She entertained me with stories of her travels and her family. I lost touch with her in the past couple years and now I regret it. Rest in peace and God Bless You Nancy Northup! You will be missed.

It was my pleasure to work at Immuno-US and Baxter with Nancy. She was a kind and happy person and a pleasure to be around and she helped me out with suggestions for Cub Scout activities.

I had the pleasure of knowing Nancy since 1980. I met her at First Congregational Church in Rochester, Michigan. She was one of my fellow soprano's in the choir. I'll always remember her lovely voice and more importantly, her kindness, gentleness , lovely and caring way she had about her. Love you!

Sadly, I didn't get a chance to meet Nancy, but from what her son Jeremy has told me, I know I would have really liked her. My deepest condolences to the Northup family.
