    Nancy was a wonderful person and a great aunt to me. She loved to joke around and tease and was always able to make the best of a situation. I will miss her and always think of her with a grin on her face.

    Would like to express condolences to Carol S. Pierce but cannot locate her. Knew her from when she lived on Mapleview Dr in Eggertsville and she did a scripture reading at our wedding 39 years ago. Have kept in touch periodically and saw her last a couple years ago when she lived in Forestville next to Nancy. We moved to NC 12 years ago. Did not realize til just a week ago when I called both hers and Nancy’s numbers. Did some googling and discovered that Nancy had passed and they both lived at Symphony Living. Also discovered that Symphony closed in Decmeber! 🙁 If anyone reads this, please contact us as we would like to be in touch with our dear friend again, 716-479-1732
