The news of Nancy’s passing has brought back such happy memories of our friendship which began in high school at HRA and continued for many years. Nancy’s house was always open to our friends. Her Mom welcomed everyone. She always made sure there was canned Buitoni ravioli on hand! There was always music blasting—we loved The Beach Boys and Motown. The pink Cadillac—OMG!! If cars could talk, there’d be many stories!! She was my rock during my Mom’s illness and always knew when I was struggling.
Deepest sympathies to Christopher and the family. As I scroll through her memorial, one thing is consistent—the smile on her face!! I will always see that smile and pray you remember it as well.

The photo of Nancy is exactly how I remember her from HRA.
Bright, fun and a shining star. Her basketball skills were terrific and her encouragement to me as a very uncoordinated cheerleader was amazing!
She was and is loved
A big hug to Christopher.
I hope to meet you someday. I live in Boston.

Nancy was a beloved member of our extended family and we will deeply miss her presence at the holidays and our family celebrations. Whenever there was an gathering, you could always find Nancy in the kitchen where all the action took place or holding one of the little ones. She was a warm, loving and generous friend who let you know her opinions and would put you in your place! That was just one of the things I loved about her! I will miss her smile, laugh and warm embrace but know that she is in a better place and that I will always hold the memories of her in my heart. Love you always Nancy, Deb
