Not sure what to say?

So, so sorry. She was the best swim coach ever! So energetic and fun. I remember when she first moved to Green River. I think it was her first job but I may be mistaken. I was a freshman in 1976 and had her for a coach. Debra

It was my honor to get to know and work with Nancy through WYAAHPERD. She had a huge impact on me professionally. However, it was her kind, fun, and positive personality that has left a lasting impression on me. I feel fortunate for having known her as a friend. She was always so thoughtful to check in on me and my new family. She was an amazing women that has touched so many people. I only wish my son Easton was able to meet her.

Byron, Chip and Lauren, I want you to know how much I loved your mom. From the very tender age of kindergarten, through all of our growing up years Chip, and for all the rest of my tomorrows.

I had the pleasure and honor to know Nancy through the President-Elect process..Nancy was the President-Elect of WYAAHPERD and I was President-Elect of Kansas AAHPERD. Nancy was a very special person who touched the lives of every person who she came in contact with through her personal and professional life. My thoughts are with Nancys family and friends.

What can one say about a person who touched all who knew her in a most positive way? She was a kind and wonderful soul who lit up the room with her smile. I am forever grateful for getting the chance to know Nancy and to spend some wonderful time with her at SAM gatherings. Love and prayers to her family.

Nancy was an amazing woman, and a staunch advocate for health and fitness. The world lost a great advocate and I can only hope to have the impact that she did. She was loved by all who knew her and will be terribly missed. Prayers to her family and friends during this difficult time.
