I am one of Nancy's cousins from Indianapolis. I am 8 years older than her and don't have specific memories of her because by the time I was in high school, we didn't travel to Shelbyville much anymore. I just remember that we always had a lot of fun with the Shelbyville cousins. I can't get over how much Nancy looked like I remember her mom looking. What a shame she had to go so soon.

Dear family and friends........
Wow, I could write down so many special times I had with my friend Nancy and of course her family. Seeing her picture...I saw both her mother and father stare back at me. Growing up in a small town, being in small classes at school, everyone knew everyone and everything about everyone...
I am reflecting back this morning on those fun times in elementary school and getting in trouble for talking together so much in first grade at Main Street School. I can still see her sitting beside me and running out to the playground and pushing each other in the swing.
Spending the night at her house I can just remember he parents. Her mom and dad were so nice that they reminded me of my own parents. They lived “in town” which was exciting to me, coming from the “country”. Nancy used to laugh at me because I wanted to walk around town and go to the local stores. I only got to do that with my “whole” family maybe during the summer before school started or maybe those Friday nights.
Nancy was strong willed as am I, but we could have our differences and then come back together with no hard feelings. Our relationship was just that way. She was a “true blue friend” and always will be...I hope to run into her when I pass...
May God Bless each and every one of her family and friends at this sorrowful time...

Nancy was youngest the "double" of the 6 "double" cousin. She was also the most likely to gain the upper hand. Nancy was also the one to keep the pot stirred when we were together. I was 15 years older than Nancy and frequently tasked to entertain her and the young ones. she grew taller and older, but never old. She introduced me to Mickie and Alana, with a moniker that followed me to Guam and back To Nancy and the girls, I have always been Uncle Goofy. AS long as she made cookies, mince meat pie and candies (Grandpa's peanut brittle) at Christmastime, she was one of my favorite sweethearts. We love you an miss you kid.

Nancy and I were friends throughout school in Shelbyville. Her humor and love of life was contagious.
We had lots of fun adventures and even though losing her grieves me to the core ...remembering her makes me smile. How blessed I was to know her and call her friend.

Though I hadn’t seen her for quite a while, Nancy and I had a lot of fun together through the years. When we were younger, we often had sleep overs. She liked staying with us “in the country” and I enjoyed a visit to “ the city”. Later we had many fun day adventures. She was always up for a good time. I am saddened to hear of her passing. Condolences to the family.

My condolences to the family for the loss of Nancy. I'm sorry to say I didn't know her as an adult, but I have fond memories of her as a child.

Nancy was the youngest of the Price (double) cousins. Our mothers were sisters and our fathers were brothers.
She always had a smile and mischief in her eyes. She could be as funny as Mark Twain or sarcastic when she wanted. She was a great cook and baker.
Even though there was over 10 years difference in our ages we enjoyed being with each other.
I remember when Joe, Jack and Uncle Forrest thought they would teach her how to play cards - 21 and she won every hand.
She was a great person, cousin and little sister to me.
Love her lots - Judy Price Brown
