She was one of the kindest, gentlest human beings that I have ever known. She will be missed by many of us that were lucky enough to have worked with her.

I enjoyed teaching with Nancy and even with Ron a few years. Like me, she had a less serious side which I so enjoyed getting to know after we both retired. Her last years doing things with family made her smile even more. May God give you all comfort.
