Oh Nancy, I admired your strength, selflessness and humor through this whole battle. I was blessed to know you pretty much my whole life, from Sunday school, high school, Job’s Daughters, then I was blessed to find you as my neighbor when I bought my house. What wonderful years we got to share together, so many precious memories. I will miss you immensely and will hold you in my heart forever. My condolences and prayers go out to the family. I’m very sorry for you loss.
Lynn: Sympathy to you and your family. May warm and happy memories be with you as you celebrate Nancy's life. You are in our prayers.
Dear Anah, Lynn & Dale, Lee, Paul, Ava & Karalyn, We have many special memories of Nancy. All the fun times when she came to our house to babysit and later working together in the Winona Community. We send our love to you all. Dave & Lynn
Dale and Lynn, I’m so sorry to see this news of the passing of your sister. Seems an especially difficult time because I’m sure your family hesitates to come together, and families are so important at times like this. I’ll keep you in my thoughts, stay safe and healthy until this virus is defeated. Nancy Snyder
Nancy, we knew each other from Orchestra in High School, you playing the biggest instrument possible, the Bass. I was a percussionist so we were in the back row together. We chit chatted often while they worked with that darn row of violas. We later reconnected when you were a Nutrition Instructor at SE Tech and WSU....we had some great conversations in the hallway between classes. Later you gave me your set of cross country skis because you were moving. I just took them out again this year and skid by our favorite place, Cedar Valley Lutheran Church. I will be sure to check in on your mother as we live just 2 miles away, You will be dearly missed. Praying for your families comfort as they let you wear your wings and fly high above as you watch over and protect them. I will remember you as brave. Friend, Peggy (Frank) Whalen Class of 1978.
