  1. I have fond memories of Nancy. We grew up in Poteau and went to Hower Grade School and then Poteau Junior High. My family moved to Fort Smith in 1948 when I was starting the 8th grade. I will always remember Nancy cute giggle and her fun side, but she had a serious side–especially when it came to politics!
    I know she will be missed. Carolyn Nelson
