Donna and I want to send our condolences to the family. Nancy was a great person and a hard worker. When she ran the country store at East Line it was always busy. Her lunch specials were always a big hit. She was the only one that could make my special sandwich. My favorite, Tomato and Onion with Miracle Whip on white bread. She was a great teacher and her children have learned a lot from her. She is always in my thoughts and prayers and may God Bless her.

My condolences to you all. Nancy was by far one of the sweetest ladies I have had the pleasure of knowing. Over the last few years we have shared many laughs, hugs, and little adventures. She always had a smile to brighten your day, and so many stories to tell about her beautiful family. She will be greatly missed!
