Nancy was such a beautiful woman. With a beautiful smile
It goes without saying, you girls had a wonderful roll model and she was so proud of her girls. It saddens me to hear of her passing. God be with each of you and know you are in my prayers! Love to you!
Praying for peace and comfort for Nancy's family during this difficult time.
Sending prayers and sympathy to the family of Nancy. Nancy was a great woman, and will be deeply missed by so many.
Sending prayers and hugs to Nancy's girls and Gene. She was an amazing, kind, and generous lady. She will always hold a special place in my heart for saving my daughter Lauren's life at the crosswalk. You will be missed.
I had the pleasure of working with Nancy for ten years and got to see Erica and Angela grow up in their high school years. I even had the chance to work with Trish when she substituted in the cafeteria. Nancy was a very hard worker and taught me a lot in our line of work and I will be forever grateful. She loved her girls very much, you could tell by the stories she always told. She loved children in general, every year, she would ask for me to bring my children over for trick or treating just so that she could see their costumes. I think it's so unfair that she had to go so young and will be dearly missed.
Asking God to comfort the family and many friends as they share their memories about Nancy. Grateful for our shared times.
Thinking of you all today and praying for peace and comfort. Nancy was a wonderful person and will be greatly missed. Hoping the memories of the time with your mom will slowly heal the pain. I'm thinking of you all and sending my love.
So sorry about your Mom she was truly the sweetest women. I enjoyed working with her at North Mac. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
so sorry for your loss
Praying for Nancys friends & family. God bless
As one of Nancy's high school classmates, I can say she was one of the kindest, sweetest, and caring friends that many knew. We have a class page where many were and still are thinking and praying for Nancy and you her family. Nancy was a beautiful and popular Cheerleader in a large school. She was always approachable, caring and just the nicest person you could meet. Everyone remembers her fantastic beautiful smile. I was luck enough in the late 1970's to briefly work with Nancy. Seeing her friendly smile always made my day. On behalf of myself and my many classmates and friends from the Class of 1973 at Barrington Consolidated High School please accept our sincere sympathy for your loss. She was indeed very special.
Rest peacefully dear friend! Prayers for your lovely family!
