    Nancy was a lovely person. She helped both my mom and my sister Jeannette for a long time. We always enjoyed having her come around. May her very gentle soul rest in peace.

    Remember Nancy very well. Always a sweet person in school and always remembered you when you so here in town. Her smile was genuine and she was very shy and always polite. May she have peace now with the Lord.

    I remember Nancy from grade school and high school. She was shy, but such a sweet and nice person. I wish I had known her in later years. One of those people you always remember. Rest in peace, Nancy.
