Nancy and I went together to many IAHCE Annual Conferences and had such a great time together. She knew EVERYONE there and they loved her so because of her many friendship all around the state. She was a gem and we shall miss her.

My sympathy and prayers for your family. Nancy was such a sweet lady. I remember her as a 4-H leader and knowing her at the United Methodist church in Arrowsmith many years ago.

I´m sorry for your loss in the passing of a beautiful lady. I worked in extension for 20 years and attended many of the HCE meetings teaching programs in each unit once a year for all the units. I thoroughly enjoyed Nancy the whole while! It was fun watching her work a room as social, energetic and cheerful as she was. She put a whole lot into her dedication as an HCE member. No wonder she was a member of many social clubs. May you share many wonderful memories of this wonderful lady for years to come.
