Kim and Sarah, The service was beautiful, Sarah, your words were perfect. My family got to know your mom when we would get together with Doug and Jean and I remember she was so easy to talk to. I wish we would have gotten together more but life got in the way as it so often does. I do remember she was over the moon when you were born ❤️ Have faith that you will see her again, this life is just a short visit but Nancy was one of the lucky ones that lived every minute. God bless you and your family and take care of your dad

Dearest Sara and family, There are no words, except to say that our hearts ache for you! Your Mom is unforgettable for bringing the fun to every event she went to. She was a joy to be around and had an infectious spirit! She loved her family deeply and would do anything she could to make their lives brighter! What a warrior she was fighting cancer and a blessing to everyone she encountered. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Love and hugs, Jenny and Dan Yuhas

I had the honor of being Nancy’s friend through work. Nancy was a wonderful friend and coworker. She always made a point of celebrating everyone’s milestone moments and baked something special. After she retired, we had a monthly girls dinner that we all looked forward to. She will be dearly missed. My condolences to her family.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I worked with Nancy for many years. She along with her friend Shannon Miller made it possible for many of us in the work group to succeed in a very stressful environment. She was a mentor, a very kind heart and a friend. I always loved to hear her laugh and she always had a smile to reassure you when times were tough. What a wonderful person she was. Rest in peace from your long painful battle. Love and prayers to her husband, daughter, grandchildren and all family whom she held dear.

Nancy Smith is a wonderful person. She always made me smile. She always thought of other people before herself. I loved talking to her about baking. That is one thing we had in common. I would love to see her at the salon. I made her feet look and feel great. Nancy Smith, I know you are looking down at each and every one of us. Thank you for being a part of my life. I will always have you in my heart and memories.
