    I’m so sorry for the loss of Nancy. I worked with her at Kroger’s from 76-79. She was always so happy and full of energy…a real pleasure to be around. Her customers loved going thru her checkout stand as she would chat with them as if she knew them forever. She treated everyone as if they were close friends. I’m so glad I connected with her on Facebook during the last few years. My deepest condolences to Sam and her entire family.

    Nancy was the switchboard operator at Graham Hospital when I was a student at the School of Nursing. She was an fun loving person and took special care of us. Back then she would have to page the dorms if you had a phone call and then connect us up when we called down. I just loved visiting with her. A very special lady.!!! To her family….
    I am sorry for your loss.

    Sam, Tammy, Jennifer and families…I am so sorry for the deep hurt you are going thru right now. I know that you know her family meant everything to her.
    Nancy was a special co-worker at Kroger’s. She always had a smile on her face and a quick wit. We shared so many hours together working but they never seemed like work when she was there. Our hours were filled with laughter.
    She is at peace now in heaven and dancing on streets of gold. Hold that picture in your minds when your sorrow seems unbearable.
    Sending Deepest Sympathy
