    Neil and family. Nancy was true friend and neighbor growing up in Ashland on North 15th back in the 1950-60’s and she remained a true friend whenever we met in the following years.

    Nancy was my teacher when we first moved to Ashland, and her smile, hugs, and genuine concern for all of her “kids” will never be forgotten.
    I was her teaching assistant my senior year as well, and will always appreciate her guidance and support.
    You were a beautiful soul, Nancy, and will be missed by so many.
    Prayers for your loved ones.

    Kathy Green-King
