    I remember the first time I met Nancy…I was taking Ziffle, my pet pig, for a walk. He spied the green grass of the Davis’s lawn and I could not get him to move off of it! Nancy brought out some oyster crackers so I could lure him out of their yard. It worked! I also groom her beloved poodle Teke. She was always such a sweet, kind lady to me. I will miss her dearly. My sincere condolences to the Davis family.

    Five years ago Nancy & I became “Partners in Pain” as we worked through our individual physical therapy in the Kane County Hospital. She continued to suffer more falls & ailments, but didn’t complain about the never-ending pain in her back. She smiled through it all & remained a precious friend to me. I loved her attitude & amazing ability to stay positive. I cherish our visits & the feeling of sisterhood we shared. I’m so grateful for our lasting friendship. She treasured Marv & her family; I know Nancy will see them again!

    Heaven gained a strong, loving, caring and giving woman. You couldn’t have been a better role model, Mama. All the times you told me I remind you of yourself, to me, there was no greater compliment. We were so blessed to have you in our lives. I love you and miss you so much.

    We met Nancy and Marv only 13 years ago and almost instantly they became our best Utah friends.particularly because of Nancy’s infectious smile and positive attitude. Nancy was always willing to share her wisdom while being a great friend and listener. Her and Helen could always make each other smile and laugh Nancy even started calling us her Utah kidsBecause she knew how much we love her and Marv. Thank you for being such a great part of our lives and all the happy memories that we shall never forget. We love you so very much Nancy with all our gracious love and admiration.Mike and Helen Hicks
