Nancy was my best friend and confidant throughout my childhood and on into my teenage years. Even in college and after we met our future husbands our friendship persisted. In adulthood, my husband and I moved to Pennsylvania, but the friendship you and I had never waned even over all those miles and years. My childhood memories will always be interconnected with you and remain as vivid today as they were 60 years ago. I cannot imagine a world without you in it because you have always been there with me. My sadness at your passing is immeasurable, but I will always treasure the memories of our time together forever. You were the best friend a young woman could ever ask for and for that I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I can never repay you for everything you gave me throughout our lives. I will love you forever and think of you always.

Everyone needs at least one friend like Nancy. She was my SilverSneakers exercise buddy and we shared so many great laughs. She and Gary were an ideal couple and so much fun. I will miss her always and our thoughts and love are with you Gary and family. Martin and Linda

Gary and Brian and family,
I was saddened to hear about Nancy. She was a dear friend and colleague. I have many happy memories of the years teaching, bowling, and getting together. Nancy was a wonderful person and always had a smile for others. May comfort and peace be with you at this most difficult time. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
