I always enjoyed spending time with Nancy. We worked together on 4B and she shared great memories of her family with me there. Also, she was gracious to allow me to stay at her house during snow storms so I wouldn't need to travel to Juniata county on dangerous roads. All I needed to do was ask and she opened her home to me!
I just happened to find her obituary by accident while searching for another. So sorry I missed her services! I would have loved to attend.

I will always remember Nancy and living on South Main Street, her paintings (of which I have two in my dining room), her basset hound Red, I think..... keeping me overnight while my sister Julie was born and picnic/swimming trips to Poe Paddy and Greenwood Furnace....may she rest in peace!

Nancy was part of our Red Hat Ladies and that is where I met her. What a lovely person. Always so friendly and polite. We shall all miss her.
