When I think of Nancy I automatically smile, because her smile would light up any room and her laugh could warm any heart. Her family was her pride and joy, and she was a servant to her Lord and community. Nancy loved people and always made those welcomed in their home and offered a seat at their table with open arms. Nancy was very intelligent, witty, creative, and hard worker. I have so many wonderful memories, to many to share here. Nancy thank you for all wonderful gifts you installed on all of us.

Loved beyond measure, and greatly missed by many. Love, Sarah
