Nancy was my middle school teacher and i worked with her for a time at Foulkeways Senior Living. She was an amazing teacher, coworker and human being. I will greatly miss her.
Mrs. Bower was a force in my life. She believed in me as a middle schooler and supported me throughout high school. She was one of the pivotal people that guided me into teaching. She touched many lives, but mine was special. I still received Christmas cards from her up until last year. I always enjoyed hearing about her daily activities, nothing slowed her down. She will be missed and I can only hope I can influence someone in the way she influenced me. RIP Mrs. Bower.
Nancy was my first cousin whom I grew close to over the last 5 years. She loved talking with all kinds of people. No one was made to feel below her. She enjoyed being outside and watching the squirrels and birds from her apartment. She definitely thought her life through and considered her children. Always gracious and smiling with her family and strangers. Chris and I will miss her very much!
Condolences to the entire family.
We will always remember the time spent with Nancy. All the years at Eagle Lake, time in Cape May and countless dinner dates-favorite meat loaf at the Glider Diner. We shared a love for dogs- she loved Shelties. I will miss our conversations. She was a kind and dear friend.
