Nancy worked for New England Telephone and then later the City of Quincy as a crossing guard. She loved her work, the kids she protected and the relationships she built throughout the years. In her spare time, Nancy loved to play bingo and also enjoyed crocheting, shopping, dining out and spoiling her grandchildren. Family was the most important part of her life. She loved her children and grandchildren and there wasn't anything she wouldn't do for the people she cared for. Nancy was always trying to make other's lives better.

She will be missed by all the lives she touched.
