Nancy was a dear friend of mine for over 50 years.  I was 18 when I started working at Avco and Nancy began working there shortly there after.  We shared many good times together. We took bus trips  to Washington and New York.   I always enjoyed her company and we always kept in touch.  I will miss her dearly.                       Mary Khan

I had the pleasure of working at Weis with Nancy. She was one of my favorite people to visit each day and chat with while she made subs and salads. I enjoyed catching up with her when she would come in shopping and get her two cartons of Weis Salted Caramel icecream. We always joked about if it wasn’t in the freezer, she’d have to lay the fist on the manager. Nancy was a breath of fresh air, her stories always made me smile. Rest easy Nancy, eat all the icecream you want! Amber
