Nancy was my mentor teacher when I began. I still make her recipe for Taco Soup and my fond memories of her return each time.

Al and Dan, A very late note of condolence but sincere. Caregivers don't always get to do things when they wish! I was sorry to miss Nancy's service. She was a loving person and fun to be with. We were church friends way back in the 1960's. You will miss her love.
The Lord's blessings on all of you.

Nancy was a wonderful help to me when I got my first job at Gause. She came in one day just to help me get ready for the first day of 4th grade. I always enjoyed her sense of humor and her skill as a no nonsense, but caring teacher. Many years ago she invited me and the other 4th grade teachers to her new house and she made a taco soup. I still make that soup to this day and always think of her when do.
