Nancy was my spiritual counselor and loving confidant during a very trying and painful time in the 70's. She helped me to return to the peace of our Lord. She was indeed a precious, loving lady and one of God's faithful servants. "Well done, they good and faithful servant." Marilyn Holmes, July 25, 2011 Nancy had a beautiful voice! I also enjoyed playing with her in handbell choir. She was always a very friendly and loving person. Judy Vroonland, July 25, 2011 Nancy was a lovely lady, so dedicated to her family, church and friends, as well as her community. I was privileged to serve with her on committees at Arapaho UMC and witness to her tireless contributions to the ministries of the church. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you, her family. She was so proud of each of you, as I'm sure she let you know. Jeannine Gibbs, July 25, 2011
