Nancy was a loving and devoted nurse, daughter, sister, aunt, mother, grandmother, and wife. She will be remembered by her family and friends as the most generous, joyous, and caring person in all our lives. That she always put others before herself and whose faith in God sustained her for her entire life. Her joys were reading her bible and spending time with her family. Nancy loved to sing old show tunes and had a whistle that could be heard the next block over. Nancy we will all miss you until we meet at the resurrection. Love you madly!
