Nancy loved music and dancing and BOY, she could dance for hours. She also enjoyed shopping. Nancy learned about Jehovah God from her neighbor and one of her closest friends, Mary Byers. When she heard about Jehovah's ways, she followed him right away. After getting baptized in the early 60's, she moved full steam ahead. She studied with many people and taught them firmly what Jehovah expected of them. In the late 1980’s, Nancy joined the pioneer ranks and volunteered teaching the Bible principles.
