Nancy was simply the sharpest person I had the chance to be around. She was put together in her manners, her work ethic, her clothing, her house and car were spotlessly shiny! While all of this did not just happen, or got hired out - Nancy simply dug in and got the job done, whatever that job might be. Whether it was helping a sister or friend, she made time to also give of her talents to others. No one could wear a crisper blouse, and while looking like a million bucks, in her office attire, come home fix lunch and tidy up the dirty dishes without getting a drop on her clothing! And she imparted those skills and work ethic in her children all while clearly understanding the value of humor and having fun. I learned much from her. Hugs to Shelly Dee and Erik. Love, Lindy Binns

Oh that Nancy ! We sometimes called her Fancy Nancy.... she was always so polished and put together. She could wear jeans and a t shirt and still look Fancy . I had the honor and privilege of working with Nancy at Allgeier Martin all of her years there. Shelly and Erik I'm so sorry to hear this news. She was a good and true friend. We also did things together away from work and had lots of laughs and lots of fun. You mom loves you so much and I know you'll keep her memory alive with stories you can pass on to the the kids and grandkids, who she also loved dearly. She will always be in your hearts. I had a dream about Nancy not too long ago. I went to see her and she met me at the door and we sat and visited and caught up on things. She was bathed in light and had rhinestones in her hair. What a beautiful lady she is. I always think of her running errands with rollers in her hair. In my dream I guess I replaced them with rhinestones! And now she'll walk the golden streets of heaven and her light will shine forever. I love you Nancy. Rest in peace sweet friend.
