  2. Prayers of comfort and peace as you grieve the loss of a wonderful, friendly and thoughtful woman we all loved about Nancy.

    She was far more than the smiling face at Doctor Taylor’s office. She genuinely cared about you and your family.

    I’m going to miss you’re smiling face.
    I pray you are in the arms of our sweet Lord where there is no pain or cancer.

  3. To Nancy’s family – I am so sorry for your loss as I am sure Nancy was a wonderful wife, mom and grandmother. Although I only got to see Nancy sparingly, I just loved seeing her smiling face when I arrived at Dr. Taylor’s office. She brightened every visit and I will miss seeing her. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

  4. Nancy was a dear cousin and a remarkable friend. It was always a joy to be in her company. She was a fiercely dedicated employee and always put her best effort in everything she did…tending to her family, friends, needlework, and lucky for us, cooking! May you rest in peace with your parents and brother. You will be sorrowfully missed.

  5. We just saw Nancy’s obituary someone of a shock we haven’t touch base with you in a long longime. We have great memories of beening at the Thom Driscoll ballpark together and the crazy after events at the Ballpark and an unforgettable night opening a restaurant and the parking afterwards. lots and lots of laughs. I’m sure the last 20 years been a wonderful time for you and your family I’m sorry we won’t be able to attend the services but please know that we will be thinking about you and the girls.

  6. I just learned of Nancy’s death and I want to tell Nancy’s family and Dr. Taylor and his staff how much I loved and respected Nancy.
    I knew Nancy through her work at Dr. Taylor’s office.
    She was always so warm and wonderful and we shared information about Wichita, Kansas where she grew up and I lived at one time!
    My thoughts and prayers go out to all her family and friends. We all will miss her.

  7. When we came in for appointments at Dr. Taylor’s office, Nancy was always there managing multiple tasks all at once. It was impressive to watch her work! Not only was she very pleasant to talk to, but she was obviously very committed to doing good work. She will be missed.
    Our sincere condolences to her family,
    The Gorge Family
