Our family was so blessed to have had Nanci as our children’s principal at Oakhurst, and even more special became a friend ! What a fun beautiful person inside and out.
She will be missed by all.

She was my principle at Oakhurst elementary for my entire time there, K-5th. She was always the nicest, and most understanding woman and my condolences go out to her entire family.

My condolences to Nanci’s family! At a time when I had custody of three grandchildren attending Oakhurst I found her caring and helpful with our situation. Her kindness will always be remembered.

My condolences to Nancy’s family. She was an incredible woman. I remember her from Oakhurst Elementary. My daughters pre school years would have never been the same without her guidance and leadership at the school. Her love for teaching and all her children showed every day. She will be lovingly remembered by lots of parents and children who are now grown and make a mark on life themselves !

So sorry to hear of Nanci's passing. We knew her as a wonderful Principal as Oakhurst and over the years learned she was simply a wonderful person as well. The kids were so excited when we bumped into her in Park City, Utah during Spring Break. The world lost another one of the good ones.

You are the most incredible person I have ever known. And I am so fortunate and proud to have called you my wife for 42 very special years. Your life's rule "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" summed it up quite well. Thanks for sharing all those years of your life here with me and for giving me the best son any man could ever hope for. Until I see you again, remember that I love you, F & A.

Nanci came to Oakhurst and was a great principal. She always sought out our needs and desires. Nanci always took time to talk and see that all was well. I'm so sorry to learn of her passing. May God bless her family. She was a very special lady. Helen Hudson

When I think of Nanci I am filled with memories of her smile and her absolutely wonderful sense of humor. So lucky to have known her. She truly was one of our tennis "Top Shelf Ladies",
On the court and off. I will miss her dearly.
