    My sincere sympathy to Nancy’s family. She was amazing and her impact on the health industry and certainly the Health Industry Council was immense. While this is very sad news, I choose to remember Nancy’s great smile and sparkling eyes and all of the wonderful things that are credited to her.

    Nancy carried the Health Industry Council to great success. She almost willed it into its peak. Likewise, she set an example to every one of us, but even more so to cancer survivors. She accomplished a great deal in her professional life, but it was what she did in the face of extreme adversity in her personal life that may be her greatest gift to those to whom she witnessed throug her love and actions on behalf of others. She ultimately lost her fight but she was never conquered by circumstance. She left a legacy and much Spiritual treasure . Pray for Earl and the family and that a most gracious lady’s life example with the Lord’s grace will bring joy and healing with time. Ron Anderson M.D.

    I have been blessed to get to work with Nancy to impact state policy. She was brilliant, resilient, resourceful, persistent and a “can do ” positive person. Last summer she briefly mentioned her health issues, but quickly turned her focus to what else needed to be addressed in the Texas health workforce. I will miss her advice and counsel terribly.
    To the family: She loved and cherished her wonderful family! I know you all have a hole in your heart. She will be with you any time you choose to remember her! God bless you all.

    She was more than a passionate advocate for collaboration throughout our profession, she was a profoundly caring person that demonstrated the depth of her heart through her words and actions. I was always inspired by her tireless efforts to bless our community through the hospital council. And touched by how much she cared for the individual.

    She will missed. She will be remembered. And she will be always and deeply loved and appreciated.

  • Nancy was a great friend and supporter of ACHE or North Texas and her support and friendship were extremely important and meaningful to me during my two-year term as President.

    She was gracious, insightful, and a true leader.

    She will be missed.
