    When I first met Nancy I didn’t think, much of her. Then I had to do her breaks for the Kiddies Korral, I thought she was pickie and bossie. She always gave me the layout of what she wanted done and how. Now that I am in there I can’t help, but feel like I am doing the same to the other people doing my breaks (just ask Brad) lol. But as the months went on I began to understand why she wanted things done her way, and so began our friendship and my respect for her. Anytime I wasn’t wrapping I would watch poor Nancy trying to keep up with the kids, rather it was chasing them or just making them laugh, I always wanted to be a kid and just go join in on the fun. She always made the place lite up even on cold winter days. And you could tell she herself was having a blast. To this day I get asked “where’s Nancy?”,”is she coming back?” At first I was hopeful and I always told the kids soon or maybe in a couple of months. It wasn’t the answer that they were hoping for, but it did give them hope. Now that she is gone but not in spirit it’ll be harder to swallow. I have lost a dear friend and mentor…may she lay in peace and be forever in our hearts, and may she be with God and taken care of with love like she has to everyone she has touched. Thanks Nancy. I’ll miss you.

    On behalf of our board of directors, management and employees, I extend sincere condolences to you and your family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

    Our family will always remember Nancy as the person our daughter couldn’t wait to see every week at the Kiddie Corral at Co-op. She made the Kiddie Corral a wonderful place to be. She showered love and attention on Amy and was always happy to see her. She was generous to a fault, fun-loving, caring, and a real blessing to our family. We are so thankful that Nancy was part of of our family’s life for five years, and we will never forget her.

    It is with great admiration and love for Nancy that we send our condolences to her sons and to her family.

  8. My 3 sons loved coming to the Kiddie Korral, and they were very fond of Nancy. She was very patient with them, and made the place fun. There is a part of her that will always be within them. We will miss her.
