Condolence & Memory Journal

Nancy and I worked together over the past 10 years at the theatre, and she taught me so much on operating the box office - and we became friends. I will miss visiting her and Willow, her cat and I will definitely miss her. Prayers to Sue and your family.

"Rest in Peace, cousin Nancy. I remember our times in Tinley Park when you were the sophisticated teenager and I was the kid trying to get some attention from you. You were kind to me then and later when our parents visited together. My condolences to all in the family from Arizona where I am spending time and my apologies for being unable to attend the funeral."

Besides being one of my gym teachers, Nancy and I worked and played many years together at the Holland Community Theatre. She certainly was a fixture at HCT from the beginning.

I extend my deepest sympathy to Nancy's family. She was a wonderful woman and good neighbor. Some years ago I read an anonymous quote that still encourages me today: Since God is with us, and our loved ones are with Him then they're not very far away.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family in the passing of Nancy. She was a great Bargainer for West Ottawa Education Association. The staff appreciated her years of service and dedication. As the President of the MEA Retired Lakeshore Chapter of teachers, bus drivers, custodians, secretaries and other Support Staff, I would like to express our sincerest condolences to the family. Nancy was a long time member and friend.

I had Nancy Gasper for a pe teacher back in 65-71. She was always nice to me, and always thought alot of her. Sorry to hear of her passing. Heaven sure is getting sweeter

Another teacher now at Rest. Prayers for the family. I had her as a teacher back in the 60's when WO was new. She had a great Career.

So sorry to hear about the loss of your Mom. Miss Norling was our PE teacher when West Ottawa was a brand new school. PE was different than it is today. We wore crazy looking uniforms, we had no women sports other than swimming. She was involved with our cheerleading squads until other PE teachers for girls were hired. Enjoyed her as a teacher. Thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

I am so sorry to hear about your mom! I worked with her at Holland Community Theatre (and she was my teacher at WO). What a wealth of knowledge she shared with me! I loved working with her and I will miss her! Prayers to you.
