Not sure what to say?

I had the great good fortune of having Mrs. Patterson as a S.S. teacher when she taught in Forsyth County, Ga. I graduated in 1985 and immediately wrote to tell her how awesome she was. She sparked a life long interest in history and the way the world works. I will always remember her stating that China would give up communism eventually. She had said, "It's only been about 30 years stacked up against centuries of tradition. It won't last another ten years" I called her when...

Nancy was an incredible friend and amazing teacher.i will always treasure our friendship. Roy and Alex are in our thoughts and prayers.

Roy, you and Alex are in my thoughts and prayers. So glad we got to spend a little time with you and Nancy at our Zeta reunions. Nancy was a wonderful, caring person. She will be greatly missed.

Mrs. Patterson was a very inspiring teacher to me and her students as well. Taught us so much that will be very helpful to us in the future. She will be missed! Prayers sent to her family. We will all have a great memory and a remembering of her in spider nation.

Nancy and I were roommates in college for 3 years and became very good friends and Zeta sisters. I admired her study habits and she put up with my shenanigans such as keeping a pet rabbit in our dorm room. She was always by steadying force. Much love to Roy and Alex during this time. I will always remember her kindness, gentleness, love of life and beautiful eyes.

Mrs. Patterson was a great teacher. I had the privilege of having her as a teacher in High School and College. She was one of my all time favorite teachers. Not only did she teach me a lot, she was also a great mentor.

I agree with Debbie Nelson's post. Nancy fought the good fight. Now she is truly healed. Nancy was the strongest, lovelist woman I have known. I and her Zeta sisters were blessed to call her a sister and a friend. You and the family remain in my prayers.

Nancy was a very dear friend and inspiration to me and numerous others at Concord High School. She taught me to cherish people, love and appreciate every moment, and to always have faith. My love, thoughts, and prayers are with her family. Bethany Heydt

When I think of Nancy I think of 2nd Timothy 4:7 "I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith." Her endurance was amazing and I will always remember her as one of the nicest people I ever knew. In Zeta Love, Debbie Nelson
