I always enjoyed spending time with cousin Nancy travelling thru the countryside and ‘shopping’ at the many craft stores along the way. Nancy always had a very pleasant way I will always hear her laughter.

My heart just aches for Nita and Frank. I will miss Nancy very much. She was one of my favorite cousins. Nancy and my mom Joyce were very close. Now they are together again in heaven. Love to the family. Love Gina and Craig Miles

I am so sorry to hear about Nancy’s passing. She and my mom worked together at Virginia Chemicals in the late 70’s and early 80’s. Even though I was young, she was always super nice to me, letting me sit at her desk, play with her hair, and generally distract her. What I have always remembered most is her kindness, beauty, and smile.

My sympathies to her family. The world has lost a bright sparkle.
