My 25 year friendship with Nancy was such a joy, she will be greatly missed, she left us much too soon.
Love to all her family and friends,

Dear Ray, Susanne and Bill,
I wanted to send my deepest condolences for the loss of a friend, wife, sister and daughter. Nancy was a sweetheart, always impeccably dressed with what she called her “timeless” wardrobe. In conversations, she hearkened back to her Midwestern/Chicago upbringing and was a kindred spirit with those who shared her Midwestern values… “Say what you mean and mean what you say.” She had a dry wit, a twinkle in her eye and touched all of us who had the privilege of knowing her. We didn't see each other often, usually over lunch or a glass of wine, but there was a shared connection of an aging parent in San Diego, a sister who lived there and frequent visits, people we knew in common, our exercise routine and knees going bad and just the joy of getting together. I will miss you, Nancy!
A cherished colleague, Nancy was a person I called to talk through challenges and strategies. She was also a dear friend with whom I didn't get to see enough. Even though our connection was infrequent, we walked through this professional career - marketing to seniors - together. But there was a personal connection, too. We both loved animals. When she lost her dogs, I cried with her knowing how hard it will be when I lose mine. I'll always remember the hand made Christmas card that I received every year. Nancy had such a kind heart and beautiful spirit. I will miss her very much.
It is always a shock when someone so full of life and the love of all things is taken so quickly. I am sure Lulu was one of the first greeters at the gate of Heaven to welocome in this wonderful lady.
It was a pleasure to fly with Nancy with Trans International Airlines. May Nancy Rest in Peace
I was a pilot hired by Trans International Airlines (aka Transamerica) the same year as Nancy (1969).
Beautiful lady, joy to fly with.
Nancy changed my life when she hired me at Tia and let me see the world. Wish I would have stayed in touch. Very sad!
nancy and i were roommates on taylor st. in san francisco and flew together with TIA. she was a great gal and friend.
Nancy and I were in the same training class at Trans International Airlines in Sept. 1969. I'm so sad to hear of her passing and offer my condolences to her family and dear friends.
Nancy was such a wonderful person, who with her dry humor walked right into our hearts.
Nancy and I were sorority sisters at the University of Illinois,and roommates in Boston and San Francisco. Our very close friendship lasted 47 years. I am so terribly sad that we have lost her so young. Marcel Proust said "Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom."
Nancy made many, many souls blossom.
I worked with Nancy at TIA/ TransAmerica Airlines ...when we were supervisors for the Flight Attendants....What a LADY! I am so sad- gone too soon...so young....
I hope all of the cats you had greeted you at the Pearly Gates. And also my cats; when they died you were so sympathetic and understanding. Thank you.
My thoughts of Nancy will be with me forever. I have never known anyone that was so loved as Nancy is.
