  1. Aunt Nancy was a strong, kind and engaging woman. I will remember her big smile and deep resilience.
    She will be greeted with open arms by her siblings 🙂

  2. May God bless my aunt Nancy. Much love to my beloved cousins and their families. Here is our prayer:

    “O my God, O Forgiver of sins and Dispeller of afflictions! O Thou Who art the Pardoner, the Merciful! I raise my suppliant hands to Thee, tearfully beseeching the court of Thy divine Essence to forgive, through Thy grace and clemency, Thy handmaiden who hath ascended unto the seat of truth. Cause her, O Lord, to be overshadowed by the clouds of Thy bounty and favor, immerse her in the ocean of Thy forgiveness and pardon, and enable her to enter that sanctified abode, Thy heavenly Paradise. Thou art, verily, the Mighty, the Compassionate, the Generous, the Merciful.”

  3. Aunt Nancy ever bright ever alive
    Such a woman!! Sending love to
    Our cousins and extended family you and aunt Nancy are in our hearts. Marie howe

  4. We are thinking of you all as you say goodbye to your wonderful mother. I can hear Aunt Nancy’s laugh and see her smile right now. Much love, Beth and Rusty Madden

  5. Anne Goewey and family, I feel fortunate to have known your mother. Whenever I saw her, it was a bright spot in my day! Your loving care for her was very evident. She will surely be missed!

  6. How I miss, Aunt Nan. She was so much fun to travel with and Mother, Nan, Judy and I took many a trip together. I admired her for so many qualities – her abundant faith, her sense of humor, her clear thinking and her resilience. She carried many crosses but always with grace, acceptance and dignity. It’s nice to know that she has been reunited with her God, her beloved Chick, Susie, Kevin, her parents and siblings and numerous in-laws. I bet that many of them are playing golf or UNO together.
    With love,
