Nancy was first a friend from teaching and from church. She became a wonderful leader for our women's group at church over 5 years, giving many hours of work, ideas, and good spirit to our endeavors. We will long remember how she helped us rally people to do projects, AND I will think of her raspberry bars she brought to meetings as treats!
She loved to tell stories of the grandchildren. Nancy treasured time with Earl, the children, and the youngest generation.
We pray for the Holy Spirit, the Comforter, to be near to Earl, Kimberly, Earl Jr. and all of the grandchildren, and sister Carol.

To Nancy's family: I am so sorry for your loss. For many years Nancy was a sympathetic and caring friend to me. It is with regret that we had lost touch.
