I met Nancy in San Francisco through the Urani family who lived across the street. I moved into the same building, our apartments were side by side and we became fast friends, two struggling graphic designers. Some of the adventures we shared - setting up a sidewalk sale on Fisherman's Wharf with our miniature watercolors "Many Minis", that was a blast. Buying (Nancy bought) a beautiful but ragged carved chair on McAllister street and we completely refurbished it for a visit from her parents. We drove across country in 1967- SF to Texas in her VW bug, for Christmas with my family. Nancy was creative, fun, and loved living in San Francisco. She loved her family, especially her nieces and nephews, they were her joy!
Over the years Regina (her long-time friend) helped me keep in contact with Nancy after I moved to Texas, setting up lunches and visits with her and Frank. Nancy was a dear friend, she will be missed.

She was a wonderful friend from the very first time I met her in the Fine Arts Dept. as freshmen @ CMU. She was my maid of honor, & my oldest son, Stephen's, godmother. My husband taught her how to shift gears on the hilly streets of San Francisco with me tensed up in the back seat. We spent all our holidays together, & she would often come to our home in San Mateo frequently for dinner on weekends. After 6 years we left California but did return to visit with Nancy & Frank. We will all miss her so much, but she's in a much better place in heaven with Frank. Love you!
