Nancy was a wonderful neighbor—kind, generous, and always willing to help whenever she could.  I loved her spunk and wish I had known her when she was in her prime dancing and laughing with her beloved Ralph.  I shall always remember her fondly.  My condolences to you, her family.  Know that she loved you all deeply.

To  Nancy's family and friends: On behalf of myself and my wife, Dona Lou, we extend our sympathy and condolences to you at this time of loss. I was pastor of Clay United Methodist Church on Cleveland Road from April, 1977 until my retirement in June, 1987. Nancy was Church Secretary during that time, a position she had held at least through the pastorate of my predecessor, Rev. Duane Stidham, now deceased. Nancy served with a high sense of commitment to the church, as receptionist, secretary to the pastor, manager of the church office and calendar. and regularly prepared the the weekly Sunday bulletin and the monthly newsletter, called the ClayTablet. She kept the pastor's schedule of appointments and meetings, and prepared notebooks of my sermon outlines and notes.
She was absolutely dependable with confidentiality, so necessary for earning and keeping the trust of congregation, pastor, and church staff. She helped train and supervise a team of office volunteers, some of whom are still active in the life of Clay UMC. She was a valued servant of Christ and the Churchl

To Nancy’s family
