    Nancy was one of the dearest, sweetest Christian ladies I ever had the privilege of working with. She had the knack of making people feel welcome, whenever she and Jeff led any sort of group here at Connection Point Church. I will personally miss her.

    Words cannot describe the loss that I feel. We spoke many times on the phone and laughed about our families and childhood. Her sweet and soft spoken demeanor was such a breath of fresh air. She was always willing to help pray for you or with you if you needed the Lords guidance, Totally devoted to our Lord in all ways. I will miss her laugh and sweet spirit. I pray her family finds peace in knowing that they will see her again.
    Your cousin, Sandy Burns

    The thing I always appreciated so much about Nancy was her genuine “nice lady” demeanor to everyone she met. Her wonderful solos at Connection Point Church were always a highlight of the service. Our sincerest condolences to Jeff and the entire family. May the God of all comfort sustain the whole family during these difficult days.
    Blessings and prayers, David and Kristin Dimmich

    We will deeply miss Nancy. She was always smiling and gave so much love to others in so many ways. She was a devoted Christian who loved the Lord with all her heart. She always put others before herself. She was kind, thoughtful, loving, caring and just so sweet! She loved her family very much and talked about them with such joy in her heart. She was a beautiful person and I will always cherish the moments we had together through all the years, ever since we were young children cousins. We will deeply miss her and we are praying for Nancy’s family. We can only imagine Jesus holding her now. With love and gratitude, Debbie and Ted (cousins of Nancy)
