In Memory

Nancy Schwartz ((Reed))

Nancy Schwartz ((Reed))

Nancy Schwartz has left the boundaries of mortal earth.  She passed away peacefull last Thursday the 7th of July. For me personally, the loss of a life-long friend and classmate will be felt by me for a long, long time.  Who can forget that tall, skinny girl in school who always would bend her knee so she wouldn't appear too tall when a picture was about to be taken. I visited with her and Les last August and took this picture on their patio.

Mutt and Nancy, that's what we were. She towered over me by five or six inches at least and other than a tree or two, probably the tallest living female object at our school. Nancy, as I remember her then, was full of nervous energy, a constant giggle on her lips, and always trying to appear shorter than God made her. Understandable. There were no scouts beating the bushes around Bothell for girls to play college basketball and professional women's basketball was unheard of. So Nancy went to school like everyone else, was fun, and kind, and full of laughter. We often stood side by side, me gazing up, she peering down, but still good buddies despite the obvious disparity in elevation. I think she kissed me once in 9th grade. It didn't work too well, but she managed somehow. Despite the kiss we stayed friends all through junior high and high school. She was a fine friend. I miss her already. Irb

Saw Nancy's obituary in today's Everett Herald, 7/26/16. It is copied below. The picture didn't copy, but it is a lovely picture of Nancy allowing here sincerity to show through. 

 

 

When Bill G. and I moved to Alderwood Manor, we didn't have much money so I decided to sell Avon. I was quite surprised and pleased  one day to have Nancy open the door of a home about a mile from mine. There she was with her baby in the highchair in her exceptionally tidy house. Nancy was a great homemaker. She moved closer later and a few times we played cards with her husband Les and Shirley (Sutton). They were good friends. Nancy was a caring, kind person. I'm grateful that time with her to get to know here better.

Nancy Jo Reed, of Marysville, Wash. was suddenly taken from us on Thursday July 7, 2016, shortly before her 76th birthday. The Lord must have needed her in Heaven most and although her family was not ready to say goodbye, it seemed that she was ready for her next journey. Nancy was born July 18, 1940, to parents, Lawrence and Mildred Schwartz in St. Paul, Minnesota and grew up in the Seattle-Snohomish County area. Growing up, she resided with her parents, two older siblings, Stan and Katherine, and her younger brother, Terry. Nancy was a Bothell High School graduate - Class of '59, worked at the Ryther Child Center and Eldec Corporation, and then became a homemaker after winning the Washington State "LOTTO". Nancy brought much pleasure to those around her – she was opinionated and stubborn, strong-willed and brave. She never backed down and always spoke her mind. She lived fully with a playful nature about her. She loved horses and her many pets through the years. She is currently missed by "Peanut" who would lay beside her on the couch while Nancy read book after book in her later years. Nancy was an organ donor and her family is comforted by knowing she gave sight to others once passing on. Nancy will also be remembered driving her Dodge Charger, "Buckwheat". "Drive it like you stole it!" she would say. Nancy is survived by her husband, Les; her sister, her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren as well as extended family. Nancy will be missed very much and always loved!
