Nancy was a dear friend of over 50 years and college roommate. I will miss her terribly, but know she is with Ron, the love of her life, and family. She was devout in her faith. Also, a steadfast friend who kept our college group connected. Will be wishing her happy birthday soon in Heaven. She has gone home and free of pain and illness. Sending heartfelt love and prayers to her family.
