I was so sorry to learn of the passing of Nancy. I have known Nancy during my postgraduate studies at Western, where she was a volunteer for a Porchlight program for international women students. Nancy willingly opened her house to us and offered her time that allowed us to share so many beautiful memories. I will always remember her calm and her warm smile. My condolences to her family.

I had the great pleasure of working alongside of Nancy at the Y. She inspired me with her easy laugh and kind ways. I invited her into our girls adventure group and she was loved by all. My world was a better place when Nancy was in it. Love to her much loved family.

Bill and family sorry to hear of the passing of Nancy. We are thinking of you in this sad time.

I was truly saddened to hear of your loss. Nancy was a dedicated participant of our sewing group for so many years. She was so creative and always came up with fantastic ideas for crafts for us to make and sell at the Dinner Dance to raise funds for Families For Children. Always with a smile and helping hands is how I will remember her. Her commitment spoke to her desire to help others and with this in mind I made a donation in her name to FFC. She will be missed! Sending my deepest sympathy to each of you.
