She worked many years as a registered nurse and also served as a teacher at St Mary's for several years where she trained new nurses and made many life long friends.

Thank you for the many prayers and Masses that were offered up for her, for the thoughtful greeting cards and notes that arrived every day in the mail for her during her illness and for all of you who so generously gave her rides to and from church and to her treatments. She loved you all and told us so on many occasions. We cannot thank everyone enough. In lieu of flowers, Nancy would ask that you donate to Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church or to the Hospice House of Huntington.
