  1. Nancy always made a difference in our lives! She was a light that shined whenever we were around her. Our love for her will never die. Thank you Cindy for all the wonderful memories.

    I’ll always remember meeting Nancy in the fitness center. We both loved to exercise in the afternoon. We had so many great conversations and laughed a lot, most at ourselves in our exercise routine. She invited me to play Bunco at the community center every month, but she always said, I don’t go to win, I go for the social part of it. Everyone loved the beautiful Nancy and she will always be remembered by her many friends. I have a wonderful last memory of her. I visited her in the hospital last month and although very sick,she looked up and gave me the sweetest smile. I can’t even picture her without that smile on her face. Rest in peace, Nancy, until we meet again.

  3. I always enjoyed being around Nancy and her family in Elmira as well as at Laguna Woods and Laguna Beach. She always made you feel special. Nancy was a super card player who was difficult to beat. She will be missed,but wonderful memories will always be there to share. Sharon Mashanic

  4. I met Nancy while she was in the hospital in Phoenix. Even though she was struggling with her condition, from her stroke, she had this wonderful smile and we listened to music and danced and laughed a little. What a wonderful lady ! Thinking about you and your family Cindy. Sending love.

    There are few people I can think of, that every time I think of them, I smile. I smile because Nancy always found a way to smile, to laugh, even in the most difficult times. I am so grateful to have been in the shadow of that smile through the years. May her eternal smile help comfort all those who loved her so long and so well.
