Nancy was a special lady that brought joy to everyone she met. I had the honor to work with Nancy in the Library at then Roanoke Bible College. She shared her knowledge and her ability to make you feel at ease was such a blessing. She shared her loving spirit with everyone and was always there when you needed a shoulder to cry on. She was a "Lady" and I thank God for bringing her into my life and look forward to meeting up with her in Heaven one day.
Nancy and I shared the same middle name. That made us almost family. She use to travel with me on long trip and she would keep me awake with her wonderful stories. I can't tell you how many times I would have to do a u-turn becasue I would be so engrossed in the story I would forget to look for my turn. The trip was always longer when she went with me but I cherished every story that she told me. I wouldn't trade a second of our "lost trip time." She was and will always be a true treasure and friend.
Nancy was a dear, sweet individual who left an indelible mark on all she came in contact with. She will be missed. Our prayers are with the family.
