    She was always tall and slender. She was a beautiful woman even in high school at Central. She will be missed. She had such a nice smile for all who knew her. May she rest in peace. God be with her.

    Guys, are thoughts and prayers are with you always.
    Our families have known each other for so long and to have this happen like it did is ironic.
    But like Dad said they have probably already started a study group in heaven, with no sandwiches just dessert😇.
    So many great memories!

    I had the privilege of working behind Nancy for many years at M&I, and her unfailingly cheery attitude and willingness to help made every team she was apart of better. She was warm, funny, caring, and supportive, and I have cherished her friendship then and through the years since. My condolences to each of you-what a blessing Nancy was!
