Many of our parishioners know Nancy Smith as the director of our Adult Choir at the 11 a.m. Mass on Sundays. Nancy Ellen Smith, 76, passed away on Wednesday, April 1, 2020, after several months of ill health.
She touched many hearts with her wit and wisdom, her musicianship, and her ability to encourage and corral a group of singers to make beautiful music together. Nancy and John Winkels worked side by side in church ministry for 34 years, 15 of those years here at Holy Family. She was active in training new lectors, served on our art and environment team (church decor), and played in the handbell choir as well. Nancy will be greatly missed.
After this period of pandemic and shelter-in-place has passed and we are able to gather again under one roof for public worship, Nancy's funeral Mass will be celebrated.
May the angels lead Nancy into Paradise.
