  3. To Nancy’s family-
    My co-workers and I only knew Nancy as an occassional customer, but enjoyed her very much.
    She was fun to talk with, and seemed to be the kind of person who would make a wonderful friend.
    We were shocked and saddened to read of her passing.
    With deepest sympathy,

  12. Erv and I are in mourning at the loss of such a wonderful gentle giving lady. We still remember with fondness our visit to her home many years ago when the boys were young, and our boys played with her boys. We delighted in the stories that Pauline (Polly) Quist (my stepmom) would tell about Mary Jane (her sister) and their daughters Sarah and Nancy. We are so happy that Heidi, Sarah’s daughter and her two daughters Sara and Lizzie, will be at the memorial with her Dad Ed and sister Kim. Our hearts are there with you. Thank you for getting in touch Dick. We love you and the boys very much. I will miss my dear friend with whom I could call up and talk about the family, getting sage advise. Erv and Sue Fettchenhauer

  13. Dick:

    I did not know your wife well, only what you shared about her with me. I am so sorry for your loss. Just remember God never gives you more than you can handle, I will never forget that.

    Sincerely. lois Vanderpool

  14. To the Aldrich Family: I am truly sorry for your loss. I met Nancy on several occassions when Steve and I sang together in Schola and Red & White choir at Centennial.
