     She loved her family, her faith, reading, rock and roll, country music, golfing, the Green Bay Packers, cooking for her family, time spent with many friends and staff at Spencer Hospital Athletic Enhancement Department, teaching and her time at Sacred Heart School and lots of lunches and shopping.  Nancy had a true passion for teaching and love of her students.  She especially loved following her grandchildren’s activities and sporting events.  She had a soft spot in her heart for animals, especially her cats, Stella and Lonzo.  Nancy’s favorite holiday was Christmas, and she was happy to be able to spend this last Christmas with her family.
