    My thoughts and prayers are with the family, Nancy was a great person, I will remember her as a shinning star, always looking out for the best of Winfield and the only the best for the people that live here.

    I liked Nancy. I loved shopping at the Ace hardware when she owned it. Rest in peace my dear.

      She was always nice to me. I was glad when she beat cancer and reopened as an antiques store. I bring my father in law there every time he is in town. He loves that place. He will be so sad. He has lots of esoteric thing from her shop.

    Nancy never gave up. She kept on keeping on.
    May we all do the same, not just in her memory,
    but because we should. A part of Winfield has been lost.
    May she now rest in peace.
