Sr. Nancy was my Principal at Cathedral Day School in Savannah, Georgia in 1985. She was a wonderful yet tough woman who cared deeply for all of her students. Her interactions with her students, parents, teachers, and other stakeholders kept everyone informed and at ease with the education of her students. Many of her outstanding attributes helped shape the lives of her students and helped them to grow up to be outstanding citizens. She touched the lives of hundreds of children in a positive and fair way. She will be missed.

Dear Sister Nancy, Your presence in the Critical Unit will be missed. We even teased you as a regular staff of the unit because you at times joined us on our interdisciplinary rounds. Rest in peace Sister Nancy and thank you for listening and giving me advice. Dinah Manuel
