Born in Belleville ON, Nancy had fond memories of growing up in a number of homes throughout the Hastings County area. As a solid “A+” student and avid reader, she attended the University of Guelph and Queen’s University and became a highly regarded high school teacher at Lakefield District Secondary School for 30 years. For many years, she was active in the Lakefield United Church community through governance and senior choir. Her recent passion was spending time with grandchildren and the cottage was her special place. Nancy always found time for knitting, reading, and walking.
