This is so sad for me. Nancy was one of the sweetest kindest people I have ever known. We used to talk and talk on the phone in highschool.....  I know that her family must be devastated. So long Nancy...

While I was so saddened to learn of Nancy's death, I was uplifted in reading the many beautiful tributes which gave testimony to the fun-loving, caring, compassionate, kind, and gentle person she was to not only her family and friends, but to all with whom she interacted.   “The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.” ? Ralph Waldo Emerson         I can only add........well done, in peace.

Nancy and I met in dance class when we were 5 years old.  We went all through St. Michael's and Watterson together.  I was her Maid of Honor when she got married and she was my Matron of Honor when I got married.  I can't believe she is gone.  Nancy was an amazing friend who will be missed.  Rest in peace dear friend.

Nancy and I also went all through grade school and high school together. I have many, many memories of spending the night and playing together as kids. This is a huge loss for all of her family and friends. She was truly a good friend to everyone. My thoughts and prayers are with Nancy and her family. May she rest in peace.

Went through St. Michael's and Watterson with her.  Also worked with her at Children's hospital in the early 70's. Nancy and Denny were up for an after 11:30 drink on several occasions and enjoyed our endless St. Mike's and WHS stories.
