To Nancy,

On one bright summer day,
Quietly, you left,
You brought with you the countless wonderful memories.
At far away crossroads,
You look back the eighty one years of life,
You smiled,
Yes, I am so glad I took this trip to the world.

Nancy, we will miss you.

George and Juliet Hsiao

We were fortunate to meet Nancy a fews time thru our sister-in-law Cathy. I remember she was always smiling and happy, so I can understand everyones words on her behalf. When reading the obituary, and seeing what is written about her qualities, accomplishments & compassion, I think of Cathy right much like her mother. Our thoughts, prayers, and deepest condolences go out to the entire family.

When the Gilbert family visited Berlin for a whole year with all their three daughtes while Jennifer still went to Kindergarden we had enjoyed Nancy's kind and joyful personality always being in a great mood. Whenever later we have met her in Newark or at mathematical conferences she was the same, always well-balanced and happy. We will miss her. Our thoughts go to Bob, Cathy, Carol, Jenny and their families.
