Nancy was a beautiful soul who had a smile, kind word, or a helping hand for everyone. She was fiercely independent and although her health declined in recent years she kept her grace, positive attitude and love for God close to her heart.
Nancy wanted a Celebration of Life for all her family & friends.
I have known Nancy since elementary school. We will miss seeing her at the class reunions. She truly did have a sweet smile and disposition. Condolences to her loving family.
We knew each other since 2nd grade and were the best of friends. We had many adventures together throughout our lives and never ran out of things to say or do. I will miss her company and her presence in my life. Until we meet again my friend…..
Nancy was a genuine friend and lots of fun. We went to Robbinsdale together (’65) but lost touch until running into each other at the grocery store in Buffalo. It wasn’t long until we were laughing together like old times. So sorry to hear of her passing. She was a lovely, special person.
She was the best stepmother a boy could ever ask for. Thanks for putting up with me. Your the kindest person I’ve known. I love you ma…
