Nancy was very proud of her home and found great pleasure in keeping it pristine. She loved working outdoors in her flower garden, and was especially proud of her beautiful roses, which she shared readily.
But most of all she loved her family, and they all agreed they could never have asked for a more loving and giving person in their lives. She will be truly missed by all who knew her.
