I was so sorry to hear that Nancy had passed away.  I didn't realize she had died and I really liked her at school.  How sad.

Dear Friends,

Nancy was one of my best friends from grade school through college and beyond. We met at church in about third grade, when her family joined Southminster EUB where classmates Sue Hitz and Diane and Doug Moser's families also were members. 

She was a bright and ambitious student, always finishing academic programs in record time, and facing life challenges with strength and a beautiful smile. She and I both lost our moms early in life and understood each other on a deep level because of that shared sense of loss.

At Irving Junior High, we formed a foursome of inseparable friends with Sue Hitz (Moraczewski) and Deb Dohman (Ryckman) requiring at least two attempts at every recipe when we shared a kitchen in Home Ec one semester (poor Mrs. Johnson).
We usually dropped something on the floor because we were laughing so hard. (Or maybe it was the other way around.)

We also shared weekly Friday movie nights, roller skating, and slumber parties where we had great fun imitating teachers into a small tape recorder and playing bits back to each other. We found this endlessly entertaining. And we shared all the mysteries and wonders of growing up together.

Nancy graduated from UNL, and received her law degree from the University of Kansas. She was a member of the Kansas and Missouri Bar Associations.

I lost touch with her through much of her married life when she moved out of state, but loved seeing her last at our 20th Reunion in 1990, including the Sunday picnic with her two young children, Kristen and Alex attending with her. She was an attorney then, working with the Kansas City area legal system in child support enforcement.

She died at 43 in a small private plane crash, along with three friends who were vacationing together. The accident occurred July 10, 1995, near Hot Springs, Arkansas.  I will always miss her.
