At the University of Kansas, Nancy was a member of the Kappa Alpha Theta Sorority where she made many lifelong friends. Nancy loved watching, cheering and talking about the "Jayhawks." She always looked forward to her phone "visits" with friends and family (i.e. Vicki Johnson). She loved traveling and watching videos of her Godchild Callie and her sister Emma. She will be remembered as an inspiration in the way she carried her cross of cancer. A voracious reader with a dynamic presence, she exuded class. She was a gregarious and loving daughter, wife, sister, aunt, Godmother and friend. She was a caring person who loved her St. Matthews Parish family and the dedicated medical teams that supported and cared for her over the past five-plus years. You may send flowers and/or donations in her honor to your favorite charity and/or have a Catholic Liturgy celebrated in her name. (St Matthew's Telephone, 770-964-5804).
