Born Oct. 17, 1941, on Long Island, N.Y., she was a daughter of the late Albert Munro Brown and Mary Storrs French Brown. Nancy was the last surviving member of her immediate family.

She taught in Cato Meridian and Liverpool schools and then went to SUNY Oswego to earn a master's degree in counseling. She was a guidance counselor at North Rose-Wolcott schools for the remainder of her career. She was elected to Delta Kappa Gamma, the honorary sorority for female educators.

Nancy loved to read mystery books and also loved to travel. During her times of traveling, she visited 27 countries.

Nancy was a member of the Lexington Bridge Club, docent at the Stonewall Jackson House, and the president of the Wolcott Historical Society during the time that the Carriage House Museum was established.
