Nancy was one of the most dedicated employees I’ve ever worked with. She worked hard and took a lot of pride in her work. Over her career she managed Well Over $100m in projects. I often received compliments about her Customer Focus. She was a good friend and I will miss her a lot !!! Peace be with you Nancy, Love ya, John g
I love you, Nanny!
As a valued member of Raymore Quilt Guild, Nancy will be missed. Our condolences to her family as you come to grips with your loss. We sincerely hope you are blessed with many happy memories of Nancy, to cherish, as you move forward.
I have far too many memories with Nanny to tell them all but what I can emphasize is that sweet lady always made me feel so beautiful and made sure I knew it. She most definitely put her heart into everything, and was always there for us. I loved when she would come to grandparents day at school, and the first communion dress she made me still hangs in my closet. She was so talented. I love you Nanny.
Nancy was so fun to be with. She’d laugh with her entire being and cry with her heart. She made sure everyone knew how devoted she was to her family and friends. I’ve only known Nancy for a couple of years with the Cass County Yarn Addicts (knitters and cricketers) but our group will never be quite the same without her.
See ya on the flip side, Nancy!
Our Nanny! We have so many of our greatest childhood memories with you in it. All of us grandkids are lucky to have you. You helped shape us and part of who we are now is because our time with you and Papa. We are grateful for that. Not everyone gets as lucky as we did. Thanks for your unconditional love and for being the person you didn’t have to be. Love you!
I am very sorry for the loss of our good friend. I have previous commitments so I will not be able to be with you this week. Nancy, you and I worked together for many years. You are a sweetheart. We love you Nancy.
Worked together with Nancy as a Project Manager with Square D. She was always fun to interact with and gave me the nickname of Sport! May the family be comforted at this time with the Lord’s blessings.
I am so sorry that Nancy left us – she was such a sweet loving person – she always had a big smile for everyone. I knew her in the Raymor Quilt Guild as well as though St. Sabina’s. My condolences to all her family.
I just feel so blessed that God put you in our lives, Nanny!!! Your humor, your laugh, your grace and your smile will be sorely missed. You will always be my Nanny!!!
I was a Words With Friends friend of Nancy for the last couple of years. During that time we have chatted often and shared many stories. One of the warmest differences of playing with Nancy was our habit of always and I do mean ALWAYS, lol commenting in a witty style using word we just played. I know she was a fan of watching Sunday Morning as well as listening and watching Musicals, as I was as well. The technological world we live in, enables us to to meet and know people we would otherwise never have the privilege of knowing. Nancy was definitely one of those people who although I never met face to face, I considered a dear friend and will miss her.
Lastly, she often talked about her children, grandchildren, and dogs. They were the pride and joy and love of her life. My condolences to all of you, you have lost a kind, sweet, loving person who I am sure has touched all of you deeply.
I worked with Nancy and she was a very kind person. Sometimes she would tell me how to do something and the next time I had to do it, she would say don’t you remember what I told you, I would have to say no, and she would patiently tell me again. She was a lovely woman and so proud of her family. My daughter worked with her also and always told me how helpful she was. I just now found this obit. I had know idea she had passed. She will be missed so much by her family and friends.
