I really enjoyed Nancy's company, we would talk a lot. She loved home interior design and fashion! She always had a good idea about what to do about whatever we were talking about or going through, she was very helpful to me. I will miss her a lot! My sincere condolences to her family.

Grew up with Nancy on the south side of Effingham but mainly remember sitting by her in a study hall at EHS. Who studied in those things? We talked the whole hour away. Such a fun, sweet person. Deepest sympathy.

Although Nancy and I ran around in different groups at school, I knew her well. I loved her smile and the way she treated everyone. She will be missed. May God bless you all with comfort and peace through this time of your loss.
