    Larry,and family so sorry for your loss.I remember Nan as the little sister,bugging Larry and Deb. May the Lord pick you up and carry you during this time of darkness. Long time friend from school and Rawson.

    • Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers. Nan could still be a pest, but you could not stay mad for more than a minute or two , all she had to do was give you that smile and it was all over

  8. Wow, is all I can say. Its still hard to imagine that all this is reality, I want so bad to be home with our family. I will miss you so much and have so many good memories, that will stay with me forever. I remember spending time at your house when I was little in Findlay and Arcadia and you took me to my first scary movie “Pet Semetary”, it seems like that was just yesterday. It won’t be the same at family gatherings without your smiling face. You were always happy and fun no matter what life had thrown your way. I will miss you so much but know that I’ll see you someday, It still doesn’t seem real. I love you Aunt Nan and will never forget you. Love, Tracy

  23. With many thoughts and deepest sympathy to the family at this time. Nan was a wonderful person. She always made you feel good when you were around her. I used to work with her at Findlay Ford and had a lot good memories with her. She will be missed.

  24. To all of Nan’s family, friends and loved ones: I graduated with Nan from Cory-Rawson and recently re-connected with her on Facebook. I live in the Cincinnati area and will not be able to attend her services. I wish we would have had more time to get caught up on each other’s lives, but I know we will see each other again someday. The last post she sent me stated that she liked the saying “when we put our cares in His hands, He puts His peace in our hearts.” I wish for you all what Nan wished for me – His peace.

  25. The world is a sadder place now, because of the loss of a truly wonderful person. She could brighten a room with her mere presence.
    She will be missed dearly.

  26. Even though times have been few, whenever I had the chance to visit with your family, it was heartwarming to be with you all. Debbie, David and Gary & I were able to visit Nan after ‘touring’ around Sandusky. .and we had a great visit with her. I appreciate so much having been included in your family times. . and grieve with you for her tragic death. You are each precious in my memory, and will pray for you all. with loving thoughts.

  27. I am deeply saddened about the loss of Nan. I will always remember her. I have fond memories of the times in our life while working together at Denny’s. I had often tought about her and the kids over the years. May she rest in peace.
