Nancy enjoyed a life of traveling with her husband (who served in the U.S. Air Force for 20 years) and children around the U.S. and three years in Spain. The time in Spain left an indelible mark on the rest of her life, in the most positive ways. She simply enjoyed every moment and experience that living in another country can offer.
For many years she operated a small gift shop in New Brighton called Unicorn Crossing. This was a time she really enjoyed. She spent time working with much of her family in many ways to make this endeavor the success it was.
Throughout the years she was an enthusiastic and highly skilled piano player with a love for just about all music genres. Walter Dos Santos Antola is an extremely talented piano player. The two of them would play for hours and hours.
Amongst her many talents she was a prolific knitter producing exquisite sweaters.
