    Chris and family, Our sincere condolences for your loss. It is never easy losing a parent. We only got to know Nancy these last few years and am glad we did. She was always so kind and loved to chat with us. You are in our thoughts and prayers especially now during these difficult times.

    I am so sorry! I had the opportunity to get to know Nancy while we were volunteering for the Obama re-election in 2012. I will miss her, and I will miss her passion for making our government work better for al of us.

    Enthusiastic campaigner. Inspired by her love of life.

    A grand lady. Once when she and I were canvassing for a candidate, a resident became irate and–using some “choice” words–demanded we never step close to his property again. The temptation would’ve been to use some other “choice” words in response; however, Nancy remained calm and reminded me of Michelle Obama’s quote, “When they go low, we go high.” That applies to everything in life–work, family, social interactions, politics. Nancy walked the talk. Peace, dear Nancy.

    So sorry for your loss. My prayers go out to you & your family. May Nancy rest in peace.
    I remember when you & Nancy started dating , the entire 8th grade basketball team at St Bernarfs thought for sure “coach” was dating ” Miss America “.
    John , thanks for being such a positive influence on our lives. You were so much more than just a basketball coach. God bless.

    Nancy was a tireless volunteer in the Obama campaign, so dedicated to the cause and more than willing to include me in events at her home and driving me to others. I cherished her friendship. I will miss her and wish her eternal peace,

    Nancy was one of the kindest, funniest, and hardest working people I’ve had the pleasure of knowing. I am so saddened at the news of her loss. It was an honor watching her find her political voice, and turn it into action, over the past 12 years. Couple that with her absolute devotion to John and their family, her church, her countless friends, and there was no way to not fall in love with all that Nancy was and all that Nancy stood for. She will be terribly missed by us all and I am so proud to call her my friend and political sister! Love you, Nancy! ❤️

    Dear Chris and family, my thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Nancy was a delight—always kind, interested in everything and engaged always. I was so lucky to work with her and John as they sold their home last fall. Even though she wasn’t always feeling well, she never lost the spark, the enthusiasm and work ethic—she and John created a beautiful home–and she worked just as hard to make it ready for the market–and clearly cared about leaving it great for the next young family that bought it. I always was aware growing up that Nancy was generous—contributing many hours of work to support Prep and our activities. I didn’t see her until some years later. But she made me feel that we were always connected. So those fun weeks I spent helping sell the house? She made me feel like a longtime friend. And OH YES she was voting for Biden!! I will miss you Nancy—you were a friend and an example of faith in action, love for neighbor and for the poor and disenfranchised.
