I worked with Nancy at AT&T for 15 years or more. She was not only a co-worker, but a dear friend. One of the nicest people you would ever want to meet. She loved her hubby, children and grandchildren with all of her heart. May she rest in peace with the love of her life, Orvel......

My deepest condolences to Nancy's family.Praying for the Lord to comfort you. Nancy was a true gem, a special lady that we all loved in Payroll at AT&T. We will always think of her with very fond memories!

I worked with Nancy 7 years in Payroll. She is by far one of the nicest women I have ever meant. She was always willing to help, was easy to talk too, and very thoughtful toward others. (And working with her in the Employment Tax department she got us out of numerous Penalties due to her memory, organization and ability to seem to find anything we needed.) She will be truly missed. She made a real difference in all our lives.

Deepest Condolences to the family of a terrific coworker a beautiful soul the earth lost an angel. I worked with Nancy for 13 years at AT&T formerlySBC Servicesand she was kind and thorough a hawk eye (she caught everything that wasn't right) . She'd talk about fishing with her husband and I'd share how my mom loved to fish too. I'd always ask her about her husband and she kept a picture of him on her desk(he looked like a movie star I'd tell her and she would laugh) She also was proud of her grandson the paramedic. May God's warm embrace fall upon her family and let you know your angel and her best half are with Him eternally.
