When I moved to Oshkosh several years ago, Nancy was my neighbor across the street. Nancy welcomed me by answering my questions about Oshkosh, including the history of my home. She had a considerable network of friends, many of them with whom she grew up. Every summer she would host holiday gatherings for friends and neighbors—a great way to get to know them. Nancy was always busy, a creative craftswoman, generous with her time with others. I will miss her easy laughter and sense of humor. I will miss this special neighbor and friend.
