Mrs. May, you were my most favorite elementary teacher I ever had. You brought great joy with your beautiful laugh and smile to everyone. You gave such great hugs and you were like my grandma. You mean so much to me and I will always have a special place in my heart for you.
Our deepest sympathy goes to the May family. Mrs. May helped us get through the loss of our daughter, Hayley, one of her former students. Hayley loved her, as I'm sure many of those she taught did. Mrs. May was a tremendous person who will truly be missed.
You were such a caring, loving person. Thank you so much for your wisdom over the years and helping my little ones, Benjamin, Cassandra and Andrew. Every time we saw your name on the list Friday before school started we were so excited! We will miss your big HUGS! Until we meet again..Love, The Lara Family
My deepest sympathy and condolences to all of you. Nancy was a friend for years and though we lost track of each other, I thought of her often. My heart aches for all of you.
Will always remember you Mrs. May. Greatest Elementary school teacher I ever had.
Mrs. May, you were a wonderful teacher and friend. Thank you for sharing your love with our family. We will always remember you. You are missed. You were a true living angel. xo
I remember Nancy back in Jr. High and most of all at Pomona. She alway's had a smile when you said hello and was just a very kind person to all. Mark to you and your family we send our condolences. She left us with many fond memorys
Nancy, my friend. I will always remember your great laugh and love for life. We had many memories together as Math presenters for the district and going to CMC Math Conference in Palm Springs. I will never forget your friendship.
Nancy and I first met as PTA members and then became co-workers at Magnolia and remained friends. She always gave more than 100% in whatever she did. Heaven has another "angel" with an attitude to accomplish much. Always a smile and welcoming way when she met you.
I love you and will miss you dearly Nancy May. See you in Heaven- take care of my dogs till I get there ;)
Mrs. May you are legendary! You are beautiful! You being smiles to my family when you are thought of, you ARE Sammi Jos all time favorite teacher. Shad and I will miss running into you ALL THE TIME in the garden center at Lowe's :-)
Thank you Mrs. May for being you. It has been a true honor to know you.
You will be missed.
Our Love and strength go out to your family.

Nancy was a fantastic Math teacher, who encouraged my son to study his love for Mathematics. Nancy was a wonderful person and we have fond memories of her.
Katie and Matt, Your Momwas a great lady and a good (the best) friend to my sister Candy. We all loved her. She always made us smile. Hevan has gained an angel, she and Candy are looking down on us, loving us and protecting us. God Bless you both and smile! Nancy is smiling on us all. Sam
Yes, I will always remember Nancy and the Plouff family as well as my friendship with Mark. Nany, you were a good person!
My condolences to all of Nancy's family, friends and relatives. I knew Nancy from high school and she was liked by all and will be missed by all.
A beautiful rose for a very beautiful lady -- Nancy May. Heaven has gained a new angel as Nancy joins Melanie Ann White as well as, loved ones of others whose journeys with all of us have come to an end. Nancy we thank you for the friendship that you shared with our family for so many years, which innocently began with you helping to make Melanie feel right at home when she was given the opportunity to share the gift of music with the Magnolia Elementary community starting in 1999. The energy and warmth that you shared with us never diminished especially during the year following Melanie's passing. Your unexpected visits to our home on several occasions were perfectly timed as those were days where I was struggling a bit in regaining my balance with the loss of the love of my life. Your timing was impeccable. With each visit, you came bearing such courage, compassion, love, heartfelt laughter, keen sense of humor, joyful tears, comforting hugs and warm smile. Rest in peace, Nancy May. You have touched and enriched so many lives over the years. Thanks for all that you shared!
In our hearts forever,
David White, Bridget White & Nick White
I am deeply saddened by the news of Nancy's passing. I have such fond memories of fun times with Nancy when we were young. I met her through mutual family friends when we were in elementary school (we attended different schools then) and we became good buddies in Jr. High at Emerson. Nancy was so much fun! My condolences to her life long love, Mark May, and to her brother Steven Plouff and sister Joanne. She will always be a shining star in heaven. Peace be with you.
Oh how I enjoyed Nancy and her spunky, fun personality. My prayers to her family. Blessed are those who morn for they shall be comforted (Matthew 5)
You were that teacher that made me want to be a teacher 20 years ago. As a teacher now I can only pray to have the impact that you had on so many including me. We have lost a special one, but you are in special place now. You are truly loved...
Your family is in our prayers. Love to all.
Mark, Matt and Katie, sorry to hear about Nancy. Tim and I send our prayers.
Mrs. May, you will be TRULY missed. You gave Gabriella a whole new perspective on education, not to mention.. discipline. You are her “Favorite teacher of ALL time” she says. Her heart hurts for you … she cries and says she misses you very much but she knows you are now “gardening in Heaven”. Gabriella has this picture on her ipod as her screensaver. I hope you enjoy it as much as she does …. We miss you & I appreciate all you have done for my Gabby & all these students who got to enjoy your love for life. My thoughts & prayers go out to family & friends!
I always enjoyed Nancy, I remember her well from elementary school. Her family is in my thoughts and prayers. ~
My prayers go out to Nancy's family. Nancy and I were grade school and high school friends. I always remember her great sense of humor and outlook on life. She will truly be missed by her family and friends.
My condolences to Mark and his family as well as JoAnn and Steve, I have known Nancy since we were children together at Lincoln school in Pomona and even though we have not seen each other for a number of years, I will always have fond memories of Nancy.
Nancy was a very special person to so many people and children. She was the greatest person to have as a neighbor to Bob and Margaret Pruneri for all of these precious years. Her smile and loving spirit will be missed. I hope David will have a memory of his grandmother with as much love as she had for him. My prayers are with the family during this time of loss. Much love to you!
Mrs May was my daughter's 4th grade teacher and she was a favorite of ours. We will miss her but know she is always with us in our hearts and minds.
You were a fabulous teacher and helped my son deal with a bully, he will never forget your your kind words of encouragement. You will be truly missed!
I had the pleasure of working with Nancy in PTA & Girl Scouts years and years ago. I loved her enthusiasm. If she did something it was fun & done right. So sorry to hear of her passing.
Nancy you will be missed...Katie and Matt I'am so so sorry for your loss, my prayers are with you both. Nancy was an amazing women, may she rest in peace xo
Our sincere condolence to the May Family. I knew Nancy 25 plus years as the wonderful and gracious person married to my friend Mark and mother of two kids I watched grow up as I was a frequent guest at Red Hill CC. and to the May residence. Many memorable and feisty times. Although I had not had contact with Nancy for some time, she will be missed. RIP friend.
Your candle went dim way to soon Nancy but you have left quite a legacy. So very many children are burning a little brighter today because of you. My heartfelt condolences to your family. We will still be out of town on the 14th but I lit a candle in your memory at a little church in Romania.
Thank you dear Mrs. May for everything you did for everyone. You know she would be taking all of our hands and would she would be telling us "Don't cry. It's going to be ok." That's just how she was. Our prayers are with the May family.
My dear Nancy. No more pain, just heavenly bliss fullness. A fellow teacher whom I worked with. I will never forget the love and support you had given to me as well as my sons. The Magnolia family lost a little ray of sunshine.
Dearest Mark and family. Nancy was an absolutely wonderful person and an outstanding teacher. Wish we could be with you but we ARE there in spirit, sending you hugs and all our prayers.
SHE WAS THE BEST TEACHER TO MY DAUGHTER. WE ALL LOVED HER DEARLY. SHE WILL BE IN OUR HEARTS FOR EVER. LOVE GOES OUT TO HER FAMILY.
Well, it's hard to write this with out remembering all the fun times at Red Hill, the walks home and many New Year's Day dinners- time flys by cherish every day she will be missed- Diana
Nancy, You have been an inspiration to me since the first day I met you at Michael's kindergarten orientation (1991). Since then, our friendship has blossomed into something I will always cherish. Although your physical being is no longer with us, your spirit, passion, and love will live with me forever. My deepest condolences to your family.
Nancy had an uncanny way of making us all feel like her best friend. I also noticed that many younger kids referred to Nancy as their "second mom". Wow. What a wonderful legacy. What a wonderful woman. What a wonderful friend. See you in Heaven, dear friend.
A wonderful lady with a great laugh and great heart! I will always miss her grabbing my face and givin me a smakeroo every time she saw me...RIP Nancy we love you! :)
Like many others on here Nancy was also my second mother growing up. I will never forget Easter egg hunts at her house and monkey bread on New Years Day! Swim meets river trips and many other amazing memories. She was also my 5th grade teacher and had a big impact on me growing up. I wish I could have seen her more these last couple years. I love you Nancy and will never forget you. Rest in peace
Nancy we loved you! You were an inspiration to us! Thanks for making a difference in our lives! We will never forget all you did for us! Heaven has a beautiful angel!
What a kind person you were Nancy! Thank you for making training s a better place to be. You will be thought of and missed.
We will truly miss our cousin, Nancy. She was a great lady.
Nancy. My second mom growing up. Her and that Southern Accent and always calling my dad, "John Muir." What a great woman. Lots of prayers for the May Family at this hard time. I love you all. Remember the good times. May God bless you and comfort you.
You hardly knew me and you treated me like family. You are loved and will be missed by many. Thank you for sharing a piece of your heart and life with me.
Nancy was my second mother growing up as Katie was my best friend since grade school. My family lived on the other side of the U and I would always be over at the May's. Nancy treated all the kids like her own and i can still remeber she had the best junk drawer full of the best snacks. I will never forget her laughter and her smile. I love and miss you Nancy and will never forget all the times we had.
An inspiring educator and a truly wonderful person. Nancy was always such a pleasure to talk with and so encouraging to our daughter, Kenna. She will be dearly missed.
