I am deeply saddened by Nancy's passing. We connected when we were both newly hired at Alcoa in the late 50's and early 60's. She was very caring, and funny, we shared many funny and heartfelt stories. She will be missed buy our Alcoa retirees. Make em' laugh in Heaven, Nancy . Condolences to her family.

I am so sorry for your loss. Nancy was WHS, she kept the class of 1959 together so well. She was a queen of cards.

Nancy will be missed by so many friends. She was so caring, upbeat and inspiring. She was the glue that held the Whitewater 59rs monthly group together. She always had cards ready for us to sign if anyone was sick. We didnt get to see each other these past months because of COVID. Oh how I wish I could have given her one more hug.
