who set a good example for those around her. One who was willing to help and always put herself before others. She was mother to many and a friend to all.

Dear Donna, Wendy, Vicky, Jennifer, Jo-Lynn and family, my deepest sympathy for the loss of your Mom. She was one heck of an inspiring woman and affected so many people in positive ways. The world has lost a great woman who did so much for so many. May she rest in peace. Love and light to all of you.

Mrs.Shaw you were like my second mother. Friends with Jo-Lynn since elementary school you welcomed me in your home and treated me like one of your kids and even had permission from my mother to spank me if I misbehaved. You were also my Girl Scout leader, you are loved by many especially to me and Caroline. I shall miss you.

Dear Nancy's family ~ she was a wonderful loving woman. My son attended The Pelham's Children Center and was fortunate to be in her class.

Mrs. Shaw was my Girl Scout leader in High School. She was a great leader and we did a lot of fun things. Have good memories of her. She was very generous with her time to help others.

Many of us have relocated from Pelham, but we never forgot where we came from or the people in our community. Nancy was one of those people who made North Pelham a special place. She left her mark as a loving woman and a treasure to all who she touched..especially our children. Nancy I hope you realize just how much you meant to our little town. God has called you to receive your eternal reward for a life welled lived.
