Nancy
Was one of the funniest people I have ever known. I remember on many occasions at Immaculate Conception but in one in particular she made all of us laugh right out of our seats. I could barely breathe. She would make this honking laughter sound....Our generations Carol Burnett. She is with her family, her friends, her Jesus. Love jc

We are so grateful to have known her, and so thankful for all that she taught our daughter. We are deeply saddened by her passing and for the loss her daughters have suffered. To Katelyn and Samantha - your mom was an amazing person. Our hearts are with you.

I did not know Nancy, but have gotten to know her through her sister Peggy. I know she was loved and cared about by her many siblings and I am heartbroken for them and, most of all, for her children. Please accept my heartfelt sympathy.
