I consider myself very fortunate to have been a colleague of Nancy in Governor Edgar's administration and a friend during those years and for many years thereafter. She was an outstanding public servant and a terrific human being. She truly she was a class act.

Growing up with Nancy in the 60's and 70's everyone knew that even as a young girl in grade school that she was special She was the brightest student and could light up a room with her smile and had a gift of making you feel special. She will be sadly missed- till we meet again. Love ya, Tim Green

Nancy was a great friend to so many. I don't believe she ever met a stranger. She showed so many women in government how to lead with strength, style and beauty. She will be dearly missed.

To say the least I was shocked to hear of Nancy's passing. Although we have not stayed close over the years, Nancy was one of my two best friends growing up at Sacred Heart Grade School and Sacred Heart Academy. I am so sorry to hear of her death, and send my most heart felt sympathies to Mark and other loved ones. I know she will be missed greatly. Marilyn (Sybil) Campbell

Love you!!!!

She was one of the most professional and gifted people I have ever known. My thoughts and condolences to her family and friends. She was a beautiful person with a great capacity for caring and giving. Those who knew her were fortunate to have that opportunity. I will miss her and always remember the years we spent together
