For many years, Nancy was active in the Jewish community, teaching both children and adults and tutoring many for their Bar and Bat Mitzvah. She was affiliated with several synagogues over the years and served as president of Beth El Binah before her illness took over.

Nancy is survived by her wife of 23 years, Lili; by her brothers, Mike and Joe; and by nieces and nephews Cari, Michael, Cameron, Katie and Joanne. A graveside funeral service was held Dec. 14 at Restland Cemetery in Richardson. Shiva minyan was held via Zoom on Dec. 15 at 7 p.m.
