Nancy, also known as Bobby, led an amazing, adventurous life full of fun and laughter, She loved playing games on "Nintendo", gambling at the casino's, fishing, playing cards and "Trouble", her Box of Treasures, throwing and attending parties, shopping, mowing her lawn and going to the creek exploring with her grandkids. Nancy never liked to sit still and was always looking forward to that next adventure and making memories with her friends and family. She would be the first to bring food, a story, a helping hand, and would always be the life of the party. She made everyone laugh and feel welcomed. She was truly a magical spirit who pulled her into her life, made you feel like family and didn't let go.
Nancy leaves behind a legacy of love, respect, kindness, friendship, and a little bit of stubbornness. She worked at Alpin Haus for multiple years and enjoyed going to work every day doing what she loved.
Her family extends its most sincere gratitude to her Alpin Haus family who went above and beyond in offering care, tremendous support, and love throughout her battle.
Thank you to all the nurses and staff at St. Mary's Hospital, The Rao Center, and Schenectady Pulmonary for all their care and assistance.
