Nancy, a wonderful lady and true lover of jazz. You always have a smile and an appreciative reception toward our musical offerings. Thanks! You are missed. Indeed.
Rest in peace, Nancy. Such a beautiful woman and true friend of the Pgh Jazz Community. You will truly be missed.
Please leave your comments or a memory of Nancy here on her page which will remain permanently on this network. Also you can share any photos you might have.
I can see her now attending every gig of Gabriel's All Star Band.
Nancy's last text message to me on 8/15/19 the day after her 89th birthday:
"Thanks so much. I will always be indebted to you dear Nelson for taking me to the doorway to live jazz at Dowe's and opening it and encouraging this shy, elderly lady to enter. t changed my life. Thank you, thank you."
Nancy's table at Dowe's every Wednesday on Roger Humphries Big Band night became known as the VIP table. Her favorite song was "Violets" arranged by Mike Tomaro with Al Dowe as featured soloist. She also like Sky Dive as sung by David Moore.
Our dear Nancy was the Grand Dame of Pittsburgh jazz fans. Whenever she was in the house, the musicians would flock to her table on their breaks because they appreciated her adoration so much.
