    So sorry to hear of your loss. I will always remember Nancy’s infectious laugh especially at her wedding when Harris helped her into the car to leave and it was full of baby frogs hopping everywhere! I was just a little kid but I can still see this and hear her screams while picking them off her dress and everywhere! She had a great heart and was a compassionate nurse! Nancy, be at peace with no illness!

    Sorry I will not be there today as we are still in the cities celebrating Christmas!

    So sorry to hear of Nancy’s death. I was behind her in school, and always had fun with her. I remember her laugh the most. She took such good care of our daughter, Tammywhen we brought her to the Good Sam, here in Westbrook. She was always conscious of Tammy needing her hat on. She was such a great lady. God bless our memories we have of Nancy, with love, Roger and Carolyn. Benson

    My sincere sympathy in the loss of Nancy. I know she was on duty at our WB hospital when one on our daughters was born. I appreciated her being there then, as I had known her in high school. She was a kind, caring nurse. Love and prayers, Eunie Christensen

  9. Jim and Peggy Klasse says:

    Our sympathy to all of the Byers families for the loss of a Mother, Wife, Grandma, in-laws, friend, school class mate and a great nurse in those days. Nancy was always lots of fun. We were out of town and therefore missed the visitation and funeral. We will make a donation in memory of Nancy for the Westbrook Swim pool.
