I taught first grade with Nancy at St. John’s back in the 1994-95 school year. She was such a kind and caring person and was so good to me. She even threw a surprise baby shower for me that year with all of our first graders. So sorry to hear of her passing. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family!

Woody, Luke, Lisa, and family,

I always think of Nancy during the month of October because I remember her telling me of saying a decade of the rosasy every day on the way to school for Luke and back up the hill for Lisa, and she always had a special prayer for you, Woody. I am so very happy to have known her and to have had her as my mentor teacher during my student teaching. She will be greatly missed, but I am sure our Mother Mary was there to greet Nancy with open, loving arms. Prayers for you all.
