  30. I was saddened to hear that Nancy had passed away. She will be missed. I knew Nancy for since she was a little girl and watched her grow into a fine young woman. I was her music teacher from St. Bede’s when I first met Nancy as a Grade 2 student. Even then, she was a bubbly, cheerful girl full of enthusiasm. She loved to sing & was one of the first to join my choir. I always remember the good students fondly. She was one of the students that liked to walk around the schoolyard during recess and lunch & keep the teachers, like me, company with her cheery and friendly manner. She always had a smile for me and was one of those special students that made me feel welcome in my first years of teaching. It was just her nature to be friendly and kind. Years later, I had the privilege to work with Nancy at the pharmacy at Foothills where I saw her as a positive, spirited and kind coworker and friend. I was sad when she left FMC & I often wondered what new adventures & challenges she would face in the years to come. Again, she had a way of making people feel appreciated and welcome, always sharing her thoughts and ideas. A special gift. My wife and I send condolences and prayer for Nancy and your family, in this time of grieving and healing.
