Nancy was a multi-talented person, with interests in rare books and medieval literature. Her love of books and literature translated perfectly into her career as a rare books librarian. She also loved knitting, needlepoint, crocheting, and traveling.

Nancy was a kind and loving soul. She carried herself with dignity, and afforded all that she met the same dignity.
