With her nurturing spirit, Nancy was devoted to caring for the love of her life, Steve, and all of their children. She enjoyed traveling with Steve, and on several occasions, they took all or some of the family on special trips.
Nancy will be remembered by her family and friends for her class, grace, and smile that would light up a room and especially for how much she loved being in love with Steve.
