Nancy had a beautiful smile and was full of laughter. She was kind-hearted and well-spoken. While she was strong-willed and determined, she was also warm and welcoming, and a mom to all the kids in the neighborhood. She was a fun-loving grandmother, and enjoyed spending time with her grandbabies. They will miss her.
