  6. Kim, Jeff, Dave & all the family..our love & prayers surround you. Aunt Nancy was a mother in my life that instilled her loving ways for others, myself & God. I’m so thankful for all the wonderful memories over all the years I made your home mine, & all the pizza & chocolate milk! HaHa! Time passed, life continued on but she always kept in touch & reminded me I was loved & missed. Always putting others before herself. May her peace & pain free days be a heavenly celebration with all her loved ones. Her victory is won & her crown of glory is shining, what a BEAUTIFUL ANGEL she is now. All my love.

She never made me feel like an outcast, and I will never forget her or her wonderful family. I wish her and her family peace.

  9. My deepest sympathy to all the family. Nancy and I met at Sutton family reunions several different times and I enjoyed her company. She also welcomed us at her home on a few occasions. She was always friendly and cheerful, in spite of her physical difficulties. I last saw her at my cousin Ron’s funeral. I think she must have really been through a lot these last few years and must now finally be at peace.
