"Missing Nancy on her birthday, will always be my special sister."
"I have fond memories of the Harry Moore family. They lived just down the road. Nancy was a cherished big sister and will be missed by all that knew her. Our love and prayers.

"Nancy, Colleen and I were best buds. We taught 4th grade at Cyril Wengert Elementary School and we were inseparable. Nancy and I often carpooled to work (happy happy times). Our times together, both inside and outside the classroom, would be a bestseller. My 3 youngest children who attended high school and college in Las Vegas have been reminding me of all of the wonderful things they remember about Nancy and our friendship. They described Nancy as sweet, always smiling and energetic. Nancy was my cherished friend. She will live in my heart forever. God bless Nancy, Gerry and the entire Schirmer family. -- With love from Jean Walker and the Walker family."
"Our hearts go out to Gerry and all of the immediate family. She was a very special person. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. God Bless! deAnn & Sam"
"I'll always remember the fun my folks had with Aunt Nancy & Jerry. She was a fun aunt and interesting to talk with. My best wishes for Jerry and the "kids". I'll miss her. Nephew, Scott Moore"
"Nancy being the oldest of six children assumed the role of mother, social chairman, referee, nurse, and advisor while the rest of us were growing up. During this time Nancy developed her traits of being loyal, supportive, helpful, and kind to everyone she associated with. These traits remained throughout her schooling, work career, and family life. In addition Nancy and Gerry's family was fun to visit and do things with. I will miss my big sister. Her little brother Jarry."
"At Cyril Wengert elementary school, "Mrs. Schirmer" was an angel in disguise as a teacher! We arrived at Nellis and our youngest, Anne, had spent her first three years of school in three different schools with three different philosophies from "let them flower as they will" to old school (cursive writing in 3rd grade)..... Nancy literally saved her. She went on to a college degree but still remembers her 4th grade teacher as do we! Chet was in school with our daughters, Sally and Martha, and we enjoyed him too!"
"It was wonderful to have known her over these many years here in Las Vegas. She will be missed. Our prayers go out to Jerry and her entire family. DC & Cathy Jensen."
"Nancy was a wonderful person. I had no idea how many things she had accomplished in her life until I read her history. I will really miss seeing her at the reunions."
"Nancy was a great big sister to me. she was fun to be around and included us in her activities. I admired her ability as a school teacher. Her former pupils told me she inspired them and made learning fun and interesting. She was very helpful to mom and was a great moral support for all of us. We shall miss her. Brother Bryce Moore"
