Nancy was a person who was very friendly to all. She will be remembered always as a person who always put others’ needs before hers. Nancy had a great knack of meeting people whereever she was.

Nancy was a very devoted wife, mother and grandmother. She took great pride in being there for her family no matter what.

Nancy attended Washington High School in Milwaukee and a year of high school at Menomonee Falls High School, where she graduated.
