    Nancy was at Northwestern College in 1953. I was President of the Class and she was very helpful. She was one of the finest Christian I have ever met and the memories of those days are still with me. I am saddened by her pasting, but rejoicing in the fact that she is now in the presence of her wonderful Lord and reunited with her wonderful husband. May the God of all comfort meet the needs of the family at this most difficult times.

    We were so shocked and saddened to hear of Nancy's death.  We had been to visit her in January and had such a nice visit.  Nancy often said she was ready to go be with the Lord, and HE must have been ready to have her there with HIM.  How wonderful for those of us who will miss her to be assured that "To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.  Our love and sympathy to each family member.  Clifford and Marcie Trent
