Nancy was a beautiful, loving, caring, generous, humorous and intelligent woman. She had several passions including her grandchildren, antiquing, genealogy, jewelry collecting, travelling and pets. She was an avid reader and loved reading western, crime fiction, Harry Potter and mystery novels. She loved music and was a fan of Willy Nelson. She was a collector of Hop-A-Long Cassidy memorabilia and teddy bears, the latter of which she used in play therapy with some of her youngest patients. She graduated from North Texas State University in '63 with a Masters in Psychology and became a licensed psychologist in '76. She later received her doctorate at the University of Texas Health Science center. Nancy was a very unique woman, with great wit, who touched many lives and will be deeply missed.

"Nancy was a wonderful inspiration, confidant and soul mate. As a friend, Nancy was kind, warm and generous. Her departure cannot be replaced or filled. She..." Roddy Oliphant (Nr Glamis in Scotland)
