Nancy Bounds was a wonderful woman. My mom worked for Mark & Nancy for many years taking care of their home & the studio Here name is Maxine and Nancy called her Max. My sister Tonya & I attended Nancy Bounds, It was a great experience for young girls. We lived very close to the agency in the Dundee Area. Absolutely love the memories.
Nancy was a very generous person.
Nancy you will be missed.

Can't believe she is gone this long....I worked with Nancy and Mark Sconse in the 80's as a music producer. What a hey day ! Her graduation ceremonies were somwhat elaborate and highly entertaining. These graduations were a true celebration of youth and the ability to model, even flount, beauty - 25 years STILL some of the most challenging, gruling and incredibly satisfying LOUD music and styling events I ever produced - Nancy treated me like a king.....May she rest in peace, we love you out here, forever !
Remembering Nancy and the Bounds agency, 2012.
I was a graduate Nancy Bounds in 1989.
I was taught by Linda and Shanon, and was taken care of by Sharon.
Marc treated me like a father did, and I really respected him.
Nancy was so kind to me with her heartwarming smile so that I could be relaxed there in a foreighn country.
Yes, I am Japanese.
I am very sorry to hear that.
I just knew it today!!!
I'll pray for her tonight.
I still cant believe such a wonderful person is no longer here. She inspired me to start my own Modeling School in Alabama. You will be missed Nancy.
I remember my modeling and charm school days fondly. I graduated1969 or 70. I always felt special with my Nancy Bounds round hatbox case. I was sorry to hear of Nancy's passing and remember her and Ronnie with admiration. I have gone on to become an Interior Designer and will always remember those great modeling days that built self confidence and poise. I do remember a term that was used in the model walk...Kickie ! What great memories.
Blessings to your family.

I attended and taught at Nancy Bounds in the late 1980's. I have fond memories of my time with Nancy and Marc and the Nancy Bounds family. I cherish the memories I have of their warmth, love for life, and their professionalism. My sympathies to Ronnie and Marc for your loss. She will truly be missed! She was one of a kind! ! !
I went to Nancy Bounds in Omaha when I was a senior in High School. It was a fantastic learning experience. She was a wonderful person and will be missed. I am saddened by the loss.
I attened Nancy Bounds School of Modeling in 1991 and have great admiration for her and what she accomplished.
Omaha has lost an amazing ICON and we'll always be grateful for all she has done for our community.
Hello to Ronnie and Marc...
I was a graduate of Nancy Bounds in 1980 at the age of 14. I credit Nancy for my poise, grace and self-confidence she instilled in me at a such a young age. I honestly don't believe I'd be where I am today without attending her agency. I did not go on to become a well-known fashion model, however, in learning the art of etiquette and grace it has catapulted me in areas that are so much more important. As a day spa owner, etiquette and modeling consultant, as well as anything else I set my mind to, I owe it all to you Nancy. You have changed many lives. All my love and prayers are with you.

Ronnie, Sending prayers your way. I worked with Nancy in the late 50's and early 60's, and am a recipient of the "walk". Treasured memories thousands of us will remember.
Sorry to hear of Nancy's passing. I worked for her in the late 80's. I always remembered the positive things I learned from her and carried them forward throughout my adulthood. She was a wonderful person and will truly be missed.
NANCY WAS ALWAYS A VERY CLASSY LADY AND VERY MUCH IN CHARGE. SHE ALWAYS KNEW HOW SHE WANTED THINGS DONE.
To Nancys family and friends.
She was a very nice person.
Best wishes, and Gods speed to you all.

Both of my daughters went through Nancy Bounds Modeling Agency. They went in insecure, shy girls and came out positive, self confident young ladies. I had the pleasure of knowing Nancy Bounds personally, as a member of our family. Her smiling face, positive attributes will be greatly missed. She was one super person.
