Nancy enjoyed her role as a homemaker and mother.  A communicant of St. Peter’s Catholic Church, Lowville, she, actively, participated with the church Hospitality Committee.  In addition, she volunteered with the Lewis County Humane Society.  She enjoyed sitting and watching nature, especially the deer, and raising chickens.  Most of all, however, Nancy enjoyed spending time with her family.
