Mrs. Adair was one of my most fondly remembered teachers at Grissom High School; even though I was most certainly not her best student. May she Rest In Peace.

Nancy was a wonderful friend since 1965 when we both taught at Huntsville High and resumed teaching in 1972 at Grissom High. When our children, Elizabeth, Steven, and Ramona, were small, we spent a week together in Destin, Florida, which was wonderful. My love and sympathy to Elizabeth. Jean Arndt

We were saddened to learn of Nancy’s death. Since we moved from Huntsville and First Baptist Church, we had lost contact with many friends.
Our prayers to Nancy’s family for peace and comfort.
