Nancy grew up in California but moved to Arizona in the 1960s where her children were born. She pursued her passion of caring for others by obtaining her education in Nursing and dedicating her career to healing others while also raising her children. A serious illness in 1996 required her to stop working but she continued to keep up on her medical education and provided much appreciated guidance and support to friends and family.
Nancy was loved by many and will be remembered for her intelligence, wit and compassion. She was very generous and charitable to her family, friends and numerous organizations. She was not only a wonderful mother but also a best friend to her children, who will miss her more than words can say. To whom we love and adore, until we meet again.
