Nancy was such an incredible person. Her spirit, wit and go getter attitude really made an impact in the world. I had the privilege of doing her hair for many years before deciding to stay home with my daughter. It was an honor to take care of Nancy and build a relationship with her, I am so grateful to have known her. My thoughts are with you, Dj, Melissa and Spencer.

Melissa, your mother was a classy lady. She was talented, beautiful, creative, so warm and caring. Nancy was “all in “ when it came to her students and teachers. Of course you know all of this and you also know what she was like as a special mother and grandmother! We are very sorry for your loss. Gary & Bonnie Slack

I met Nancy through my life in North Riverside Neighborhood and our activities. She was a consummate professional and a joy to know! My description would be.....Old-school professional with a heart!

Melissa, I'm thinking of you and your family through this time.
