Memories Timeline


  1. Bess Chosak – remembering Nancy as one of the “pillars” of
    Spring Glen Church — always interested in others, always cheerful and ready to help wherever needed. She was a lovely lady and friend to so many.

  2. Dear Nancy’s Family, we extend our heartfelt love and gratitude to you and our wonderful friend Nancy. What a joy and privilege to have known her and Al for so many years. They were one of the first folks to welcome us to Spring Glen Church when we arrived in 2005, and one of a circle of “older” ones to share so many happy and warm times together. Yes there were tears at times but we knew we could always count on each other. What a blessing you have all had being part of the Elliott Family. Love and God Bess, Jacki and Don Colvin, North Haven

  3. My condolences go to the Elliott family along with gratitude for Nancy’s service to Spring Glen Church and its community. Nancy will remain in my heart as a warm and generous spirit.
    Love and Blessings,
    Helen Schaefer

  4. Nancy, what a true friend you have been to me! When I lost my husband, Jerry, you wrote such a lovely letter to me and slipped it under my door to my apt. as you were delivering newspapers that morning! I appreciated that note so much and have never forgot receiving it. You were part of one of the first Poetry Clubs at Elim Park which I belonged to also. I so enjoyed hearing about the many poems that you loved! To the family: I am unable to attend the memorial service on Saturday but I do want to express my sympathy to all of you! She was such a lovely person to know! We will miss her but know that she is in a better place with no pain!

  5. Dear Susan and Family,
    Thinking of you at this very sad time, lovely Nancy. Your mom and dad were the pillars of the neighborhood and we have very fond memories of them. Please accept our most sincere sympathy.

    • Thank you so much Tony and Maryanne. I have such wonderful memories of babysitting for you all those years. My mother was so fond of you both. ❤️

  6. Dear family of Nancy Elliott…. Nancy was a wonderful, warm, generous Spirit to me and to our group of Women’s Fellowship/SGCW and I cherish her memory. I’m grateful to have known her and to have shared time with her. She gave me her recipe for Wholesome Whole Wheat Cake that I use and share frequently. Her bright smile and open heart will remain in my heart and memory. I wish you all Blessings,
    Nancy T Whitney

  7. Dear Nancy’s family,
    We just found out about this and am so sorry for your loss. Nancy was an amazing woman who taught my parents English when they first came to America. That is something that we can never thank her enough for. Not only did we refer to her as Teacher Nancy, but she treated us like family. Welcoming us in her home and showing us Christmas traditions every single year, something my parents weren’t familiar with. We have so many warm memories with her and will forever remember her beautiful soul and how she touched our hearts. Prayers to all of you.
    Phung, Linh, and family

    • You and your family were so important to my mother, and she was proud to be “Teacher Nancy”. We tried to find you when she died to let you know, but we were unsuccessful. Her last two years were difficult, but she kept her amazing spirit. Thank you for commenting. We send our love to you. Sue, Steve and Mark
