A note from Nancy’s family: The Union community openly accepted Nancy into their hearts with seemingly no second thought to her brain injury (1997) which hindered her speech and comprehension. Her grandson Nate played football at Union High School, where he graduated from in 2002. The cheerleaders at that time before each and every football game would come up into the stands and greet Nancy which meant so much to her. They accepted her as she was. This spirit of our community warmed our hearts and encouraged us as a family. We thank the community for their kindness and understanding over the years.
