I am very sorry for your loss. I worked with Nancy for a number of years through the OWBA. She was always dependable and level-headed. She was a wonderful addition to the organization. On a personal level, she provided me encouragement when I decided to accept a position teaching as a law school adjunct professor. I can still hear her say "you will be great." It meant a lot coming from her and it was just what I needed to hear.

What a sad day this is. I first met Nancy at an AASEc conference in 2013. I will never forget belly laughing all the way from the off-strip hotel to the Las Vegas strip with her. My belly hurt after 2-3 miles. She was kind to laugh at my inappropriate humor. I will very much miss her smiling face at every conference. I so enjoyed her conversations. We could alternate between brainstorming ways to improve outcomes for students, to pure silliness, and back again. We have lost a true friend in our field, as well as a fantastic human being. I am heartbroken.
My condolences to those fortunate to call Nancy family.

Don, Dan, Anne,
You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Nancy was one of my dearest friends and she will never be forgotten. I met Nancy when Dan and Garrick played T-ball and Anne and Katie ran wild in the grass. She was the first person to introduce our family to Harry Potter. We raised our children and later our teenagers together. We enjoyed sharing the amazing accomplishments of our children in their adult lives. We laughed, cried and sometimes disagreed. Nancy was intelligent, funny and kind. She was special and she was loved.

As you mourn your wife and your mom, please know that you are not alone.

Much love,
