    I knew Nancy from Ottawa Street, when she used to come into my store every week or sometimes a few times a week. Every time she came, she brought me a smile, a kind word, and left me with a laugh and a hug. I've missed Nancy since she had to leave to Sarnia. My condolences to her family and loved ones - Nancy was one of a kind and a very special, kind, compassionate lady.

    Dear Dave & Donna. I was sad to hear of Nancys passing and appreciate very much being notified. I worked with Nancy in the xray dept at Hotel Dieu for many years. At a time when they put Senior and junior technologists as partners we worked many afternoon shifts, weekends and holidays together . She was extremely good at her job and I received the benefit of that directly. I have wonderful memories and many laughs to cherish. I admired her ability to be honest ,(sometimes to a fault) and say it like it is nature. She was a true professional , always respectful and compassionate with her patients. I always enjoyed a cold beer in her kitchen, and how she loved her dogs Ralph and Maggie.. She shared with me her love for angels, and now she gets to be one . My sincere condolences. Cathy Lussier.

    My sincere condolences to Nancy's family. Nancy & I were co-workers and I have fond memories of her & I sitting on picnic table outside chatting. She was a kind and compassionate Lady and will be missed by many.

    Nancy knew how to take a great x-ray, grow a nice garden, fill in any crossword, give a loving home to her pets, pray with those less fortunate and treat everyone she met with respect and kindness. She gave my daughter her first pair of jeans and me a "how to do it yourself" home improvement book when I bought my first house. Nancy was independent, kind, funny and always thankful. It was nice knowing you Nanc......
