Auntie Nancy was a true gem. My memories of her include days at the family cottage in Carver, family times in Braintree and vacations with Yankauskas cousins summers in Hyde Park. We were blessed to have her.

I always called her my favorite aunt. Naturally she had to call me her favorite nephew. What a lifetime of good memories. The cottage in Carver. Growing up with my Yank cousins. She will be missed at every card game.
