Nancy was born in Medina, NY but spent her growing up years in Barre, NY with brothers and sister, Richard, Duane, David & Gloria.

She met her husband James square dancing. They later were married in Medina and eventually were blessed with 3 beautiful daughters, Teresa, Tammy & Tiffany. The family grew exponentially bringing many grandchildren: Michael, Anthony, Vince, Angela, Aiden… and Great grandchildren: Dakota, Ethan, Ellie and Nicholas. Nancy claims these were the best days of her life, she was so happy when her grandchildren and great grandchildren were born.

Nancy and James enjoyed a second honeymoon in Hawaii in 1998 and were lucky to go again for their daughter’s wedding in 2005. Surprisingly enough, her favorite TV show was “Hawaii Five- O!” She was a fan of both the old and the new version. Nancy also loved going to the casino and shopping with family and friends.

A feisty, spicy, strong-willed and brave soul, Nancy will be remembered with love by all who knew her.
