I am saddened to learn of Nancy's death. She was a sweet and fun person who will be greatly missed. I hope she will meet up with my mom and dad in heaven.
Hello, I'm so sorry to hear about Nancy's passing. I'm Natalie Lourens. Nancy worked with my Mom, Patricia (Sumpter) Lourens at Diamond Crystal for many years. Nancy was a great friend of ours and would often time visit Mom and sit with her on the front porch facing old HWY 6 in Colfax. Nancy was there to share her support and love when Mom passed away in June of 2014 and I'm sure Mom has a spot right next to her for Nancy on her front porch in heaven. I loved her funny personality, she always made me laugh when she would come visit. Sending you all my love and well wishes.

So sorry to read of Nancy's passing. She was a super nice lady. Always a smile on her face. I worked with her at Diamond Crystal and knew her from the bowling alley. RIP.
Nancy was a very good person. She would do anything for you. We used to bowl couples league with her and Jerry. Had a great time with them. She is now with all her loved ones that have passed before her. She was blessed to have many friends and family. God bless you.
