Extremely sad to hear that news Al :-(. Nancy was always a ray of sunshine here and certainly wore her love on her sleeve.

This is very sad news. She has not posted much recently and had no idea she was not well. What a tribute on her walnut O.

Very sad.She was a wonderful lady and true Ovation fan may she Rest In Peace.
I believe that is "Hawk" the special Claro Walnut Custom Legend she had made Beal is playing in the video.
Hard to get more touching than that as a rememberance to her love of guitars.

ThAt is hawk

Nancy was a special person
I had the opportunity to speak to her many times
She was truly an ovation fan and will undoubtedly be missed
She touched many lives here

I guess I'm out of the loop as usual. Can anyone share what happened? Was this sudden? Was she ill? etc.. If it's private info, I can respect that too, just seems out of the blue.

Miles, when she broke her arm in February it wouldn’t heal. Turned out it was bone cancer and that’s why it wouldn’t heal. And the cancer had spread. She said “I’m OK with this, let it go” She got things in order, her guitars went where she wanted, animals too, and the rest she dealt with.

She gave me Hawk, her Claro walnut guitar. Years ago she wanted one of these made. I told here it probably wouldn’t be that great. She said OK and gave me the piece of walnut. I gave it to Collings to have them make a guitar from it. My plan was to give it to her when it was done. It took 2 years till I figured out what to do. I told them to make a CJ in walnut. They did and when it was about a month from being finished Nancy posted pictures of hers from the second piece of walnut she had. That is Hawk. I said OK, I’ll keep this one and think of you when I play it. She smiled and laughed. Then she broke her arm and it all started coming apart. She moved many of her guitars to Damon, she gave Hawk to me to be with he other one. We talked about a song for her, but wanted it to be “up”. It became obvious that the song couldn’t be about her, but the chair instead, since she loved to rock. Smile, she wanted it to be “up”. After I wrote the song and sent her the demo, she changed her Facebook page to the one with her picture (which she never posted before) and the words “And I Smile”. I to was only appropriate to use her guitar, Hawk, for the video, and have her picture at the end.


She was a really special person

Oh, that news hurts me very much!

RIP Nancy, she was as old as me. My Dad had this cancer too. It was not nice to see how people end up with that.....

Thanks for notifying us and for the beautiful tribute, Beal. Nancy was always so nice and encouraging to me (and everybody here). She will be missed. No doubt she is resting in peace and lightening up heaven with some incredible finger-style licks. It's a sad day, indeed...

Nancy had a doctorate in kindness, which produced a giving soul that had no boundaries. She was a secret Santa all year long to many, I cannot help but believe. She was insistent that her gracious acts fall under the Nancy NDA. That is why I think there are some out there that will smile upon reading this. In sharing, it wasn’t the gift....Nancy knew that the item was the seed that provided growth. Growth in graciousness, giving, and kindness. From a stranger to a stranger was the hook...she damn sure knew what she was doing and she loved it. I am a better person because of Nancy (I hope). Our friendship was born from appreciation of her initiating growth in me and subsequently of her. She came to us and purposely touched lives. I am certain, her love for guitars was secondary. We are all so blessed she chose the OFC to adopted us. God Bless you Nancy. May you eternally rest in peace.

I've been re-reading PM exchanges with Nancy. In one of her first responses she used her famous "HOLY BUCKETS!!!!". Brought a smile to a truly sad day.
This has also reminded me how the women OFC'ers... as rare as they are... have made such an impact on all of we crusty ol curmudgeons.
They elbowed themselves into our hearts.

She was a sweetheart. I was a beneficiary of one of her "secret Santa" gifts. A few years ago, she sent me a Patriot, supposedly from some anonymous person with a sort of "pay it forward" note. It happened to arrive on my birthday, so I got in trouble with SWMBO, who had a difficult time believing it came as an anonymous gift. I was pretty sure it was her and almost let out her secret. I talked to her and she admitted she sent it, but didn't want anyone to know. She just wanted the joy of giving. Pure sweetness. I was just wondering why we hadn't heard from her. She'll be missed.
