Dear Jim and family,
I was so sorry to hear of Nancy's passing. I have such fond memories of playing cards and other games with you both and my Mom, Roberta Patterson. And of course, Nancy was so instrumental in creating Westminster's successful Fall Bazaar.

Jim and family,

Sorry to hear of Nancy's death. I first met her when we were both on the board of the Youth Service Bureau. Her empathy for and understanding of others were valuable assets.

May your memories help you in your coming days.

In loving remembrance of Nancy, a dear friend, we send our deepest sympathies. Nancy was dedicated to helping others whether it was children, friends, or family. She will be sorely missed by all who knew her, including the Anna Howard Shaw Circle, the United Methodist Women, and the American Literature Club. She enthusiastically and cheerfuly served these groups as an officer. From the first week at First U. Methodist Church, West Lafayette, she was an active, dedicated volunteer--helping with Vacation Bible School, serving Teen-MOPS, and setting up the new church. We know she is now gently cradled in God's arms for eternity.
