I met Nancy when we worked together for W.P.S.C. back in the 60’s. She was truly a lovely lady with a heart of gold, ready and willing to help anyone in anyway she could. She had a magnetic personality, that drew in everyone. Her smile lit up a room, and she had the funny, fun-loving personality to match it. I remember sooo many good times! Later, although we didn’t see each other as often as I now wish we had, we did keep in touch. I am honored to call her my friend. My sincere sympathy to her family and loved one’s. Nancy was a Very Special Lady!
