Hi Sandy, This is Jamie from the roller rink. I last saw you at a small party at Don Carlsons 30 years ago. I called down to the community center a few times Saturday and never got an answer so I thought the plans probably got postponed due to weather (although I only live down on the corner of the road and cr657) so I didn't venture out in the weather. I finally did get one of my calls answered but you had already left. I was hoping to "cheer you up" at list for a few minutes by stopping down there to say hello. Your sister sounded like a great lady. I'm very sorry for your loss and my condolences go out to all her family and friends. jamie Simpson

Nancy, I can't remember when you weren't a part of our family. Your smile always brightened up a room, your boys played with Erin, Paul, and, of course, Ron and Diane's girls as youngsters. My heart breaks for your boys, grand-babies, and my beautiful sister, your best friend! All the camping expeditions you and Diane enjoyed are wonderful memories - not only for her, but for those she shared stories with. Our times at the lake, movies, dinners, etc.; all will remain fond memories of very good times with you! May Chad and Todd find peace and comfort as they remember how much they were loved by you and Vaughn. You lived a too short, but beautiful life. Most of all you loved and were loved. You are missed! Love, Denise (Croy) Turner

Nancy, I know the Angel's have carried you to heaven and you have your wings already. It was always a treat when your mom and dad came to visit in Md. I always loved playing with all if you growing up. Great times, amazing memories. Just sad that we all lived so far apart and not be closer. Your with a heck of a group in heaven now. Give hugs for us all. Love you, rest in peace now, until we meet again.

We met when we purchased the house across the street from you and Vaughn back in 1994. Then a few months ago Nancy purchased our home to move back into the Portage neighborhood. Our children grew up together and have created their own families. It’s been nice watching Todd and Chad develops into adults from being the wild kids across the street. We talked and laughed about the evolution of the neighborhood and we were both extremely proud of our grand children. Now you and Vaughn can be united together and watch over your family from above. God bless you Nancy, Chad, Todd, spouses and grand children. You’ve left a positive legacy for your children.
