I grew up in Benicia with Nancy, went to school with her, worked with her at VA, saw her at social gatherings including her hosting corn beef & cabbage luncheons for a group of BHS girls. Shocked to hear the sad news of her loss, may your memories of happy times with her give you peace and strength to get thru this difficult time. Rest In Peace Nancy
