Nancy was a member of St. Stanislaus Catholic Church, Michigan City, Indiana, where she was a member and past president of the St. Stanislaus Rosary Society, Young at Heart and volunteered for many activities at St. Stanislaus Catholic Church to include working in the kitchen on Tuesday night Bingo and money counter. She was an extremely talented seamstress assisting with bridesmaid dresses, cheerleading outfits and general alterations. There are not enough significant words created to describe this woman. Our Mom explained to us how all she truly ever wanted is to be married and be a Mom, throw in a few grandkids to add frosting on the cake. She hit the nail on the head with those wants. She loved her entire family and also felt blessed to marry into a loving/caring family. In addition, her church family was near and dear to her heart. You could not find hatred in her being and she always looked at the positive side of any situation. God made an exceptional person to lead by example. Our memories will never fade. A monumental thank you goes out to the Michiana Hematology Oncology group in Westville and to the VNA of Northwest Indiana palliative and hospice teams. They are remarkable and impressive people.
