I just learned of Nancy's passing and am so saddened at the news. She was truly one-of-a-kind - possessing a spirit, passion, sense of humor and presence that I'll never forget. From reading the many tributes to her, it's evident how many people she touched during her too-short life. I feel honored to have worked with and known Nancy. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends. We'll miss you Nancy. God bless you.

When you measure your life in how many people you touched and helped to make a difference - Nancy was special. With always a friendly smile, she really was a Legend in Las Vegas always willing to help anyone in town. She touched so many of us, that I speak about her constantly to others about her energy at the LVCVA. I send my deepest sympathies to her family, she was one of the good ones and made a difference in my career. It is what you do with your life when you are on this Earth, Nancy did really good and will long be remembered for it.

It is so hard to imagine no more dinners, Xmases, funny stories, just the perfect gifts, sagg horoscopes, mercury in retrograde warnings and so much more. We shared a friendship for over twenty years and truly I had thought we would grow old together -- just like the "golden girls"....you left us way too soon. However you and "daddy" are together again. We will miss you

I just left your memorial service. Bill Doherty did you proud. You would have enjoyed it. We met as kids, you were all of 18 years old but already so wise. You had a quick smile, twinkling eyes, infectious laugh and an open heart that allowed so many people in it. You will be missed. XO

I did not know you very well Nancy, but the support and kindness you showed during my sisters illness was appreciated more than words can say. I will never forget that kindness. You are now with JJ in heaven.
Rest In Peace Nancy.

Darling Nancy - I will always remember your spirit, your smile and contagious laughter. The warmth of your generous heart will stay with us always.
My deepest condolences to the family. Your Nancy was a special gift and was loved by so many.
September 11, 2013
Nancy was the only woman that I have ever loved. There is a void in my heart and soul that will never be filled. Sleep with the angels sweetie. Peace
September 11, 2013
Always a sweet laugh and smile, very pretty expressive hands and a wonderful smile. All of this was shown on the outside just to give you a taste of what was inside. Blessed to be called a friend. With peace and love our friend, you are now our sweet angel.
September 11, 2013
I'll remember some really good times in life spent with Nancy (and Pat, too) travelling the world, playing golf, having meals together, bidding a "Slainte" toast now and then ... and so, offering an Irish verse ...
May flowers always line your path, and sunshine light your way. May songbirds serenade you every step along the way, and til then, may the good Lord hold you in the palm of his hand.

Nancy was loved by many and she returned the love in full. She could look like a princess and host tea with royalty and presidents; however she was only a “Daddy's girl” at heart and was at her best being the bright, funny, bustling gal that knew every story about Vegas and laughing with friends and family. Nancy truly missed her dad and once commented that he used to refer to her as his “lucky penny.” She suddenly started to find pennies everywhere she went and felt it might just be Daddy letting her know that all was well. Nancy was a “lucky penny” in my life also and she will be remembered for her warmth and humor always.
To all that she ever loved and all that ever loved her, I'm certain that she would wish:
“May the road rise up to meet you,
may the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and the rain fall soft upon your fields,
and until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Always the best laugh, smile, pretty hands and those wonderful sparklie eyes. All of that came through on the outside because what was in the inside was wonderful. Nancy had a great heart and spirit that she shared with much kindness and care. You blessed me with your friendship. Love you Nancy and so blessed that I had you as my friend.
September 10, 2013
A sweet person who made everyone feel important and carried about. She will be truly missed.

Words seem inadequate to express the sadness we feel about Nancy's passing. Her friends in the LV Hospitality community will surely keep her spirit alive in all the fond memories. Our heartfelt sympathy to her family.

A psalm of David.
1 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, 3 he restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake. 4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. 6 Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever. Psalm 23

Nancy, I love you and I will miss you. You will forever be my sister. May you be at rest in the loving arms of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
September 10, 2013
I am so greatful that I was able to get to know you, and be a special part of your life. I am so sad that I won't be able to talk to you or see you anymore. I will hold you in my heart. You will be loved and missed by me, and so many others.
September 10, 2013
To put our friendship over so many years into words to express to you and everyone how much you mean to me is impossible. I lost my dearest friend, my support, my fun whitty sparkle in the eyes buddy. I love you and know you are in a much better place and you will still be guiding me, as you have that special gift my friend. I will love you always!

Since I was a little girl I never once saw my cousin without a BIG smile on her face, she was the kindest and most beautiful person I knew both inside and out. She was known as Ms Manners to my kids cause she was always teaching them a thing or two at dinner! Sharing her wonderful stories with them on her travels to beautiful places and always making us feel loved and important like we were the only ones in a room full of people. She will forever be missed in our hearts. Rest Nancy till we see each other again....
September 10, 2013
I can't believe you are gone, you have been a good friend for most of my adult life. We had many good times, shared many stories, travelled to some great places and enjoyed some great parties together! I will miss you!

Nancy, my Sister, my friend, sometimes my mother. Thank you for all your love and wisdom. Thank you for the love you gave my children. I love you and will miss you. I know you believed in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I am comforted to know you are in His arms where you can find rest.

Our old friend Dan McLeod called today to tell me of Nancy's passing. I haven't seen her for many years but remember her fondly from my years in Washington DC. Nancy was one of the most lively, vivaceous women I've ever know. She had such a zest for life all I could do when I was with her was smile. I know her passing has left a hole in many people heart. What a gal.

I'm a lucky girl to have become close to her in these last few years. We became good friends and were able to turn to one another whether we needed to laugh or vent. I know she's having a good time where she is, sipping Jameson and showing the angels a thing or two about good manners.
