Nancy was born in Los Angeles, California on May 8th, 1934 to James and Lillian Pierceall. After graduating from Gardena High School and St. Vincent's College of Nursing in Los Angeles, she worked as a Registered Nurse until marrying Alvin Rosenthal in 1956 with whom she raised four daughters.

After moving to Virginia, she became a docent at the Frank Lloyd Wright Pope-Leighy house, as well as the Smithsonian National Museum of American History in Washington D.C. Nancy was an avid traveler, reader and history buff and actively served many charitable causes, including Altar Guilds and church choirs in Compton and Rancho Palos Verdes. She served as a Girl Scout volunteer for many years and later participated with Sweet Adelines International. In her retirement years she enjoyed creating and selling unique silk flower arrangements at local craft fairs in Northern Virginia.
