Nancy was a devoted mother, a personal shopper, chauffer, great cook, nursemaid, referee, judge, jury, jailer, peace maker and spectacular role model. She was a mother-in-law who was kindhearted, welcoming, and a bit of a food pusher. Nancy was a daughter, a sister, an aunt, and a friend to so many.
Always a dedicated volunteer, she was a fundraiser, a leader, a fighter, and a wonderful listener. She was an educational advocate and her family’s warrior. Nancy was an artist, an art history lover, and a master apple pie maker. She enjoyed playing golf, tennis or just lying on the sofa with a good book. She was a world traveler and memory maker who always had time for family and friends. Nancy was feisty, energetic, vibrant, generous, thoughtful, patient, considerate, loving, and happy. She was her family’s rock, strength, and North Star.
