    Dear Schumann Family, I am so very sorry for your loss! I always admired Nancy and truly enjoyed our many “chats”, the last of which we were in Kohl’s....we should’ve found some chairs! It was sure nice to catch up after all these years. I pray that all your beautiful memories help you all to find peace during this difficult time. I am so very sorry for your loss. My deepest sympathies to you all... Donna Miller (St. Matthews)

    Was so sorry to read about Nancy and send my condolences to her family. I am a classmate of Nancy from nursing school. We all made so many memories and have remained connected in thought over the years even though many of us lost contact. And I am forever grateful to her since she introduced me to my husband so many years ago.

    I was in a playgroup with Nancy and her daughter Kristen and my daughter Lisa back in 1978. I always remember Nancy as a very happy, friendly person to be with. After the birth of our second children, our playgroup ended as we were getting more and more busy. I was so sorry to read of her passing. My prayers go to her husband and children. May she be at peace with her daughter Kristen. Blessings Sandi Duszak
