    Nancy was a wonderful, kind and very special person. A true reflection of God. She was very attentive and diligent with details on the American Guild of Organists, Saint Louis, Chapter Newsletter (“The Opus”) and we worked together on many aspects of its publication. I will remember many happy times spent in her company at organist events and concerts.

    So sorry to hear of Nancy’s passing. My sympathy to her family and friends.

  3. Jeff White, AGO St. Louis Chapter Member says:

    It was an honor to know Nancy. She substituted for me on the organ at my church at least once, and I knew her during my time on the AGO STL Chapter board. She always had a sparkle in her eye and gentle humor, and a story to tell! My sincere condolences to the family.

    Nancy was a good friend from school. She will always be remembered.
    We had good times, even camping and boating with our families.
