"I don't think Trinity Muscatine Friends has an Information Desk chairperson right now and I don't know who of the people who staffed that most recently knew her. That is where Nancy greeted me from when I came to do Window Box work. She was cheerful and loyal and Friends appreciated her service. With sympathy, Kris Weis"
