Nancy enjoyed poetry and grammar and also made delicious soups, and was always caring for her family. From a young age her dream was to live in the U.S. She often said how glad she was she could settle here with her husband. She was proud that each one of her three sons got a Ph. D., and was never shy to mention it. She was the most loving wife, mother and grandmother. Her warmth, devotion and her unfailing smile will always be a treasure for all who knew her; likewise, her strength, endurance and integrity are an ongoing source of inspiration.
A private visitation was held on July 30th, 2020. Instead of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to Hospice of Dayton, Inc., 324 Wilmington Ave, Dayton, OH 45420.
