    On behalf of my dad and all of the Sumakers, I want to let you know how much Nancy meant to us through our years together at Sutphen. My dad, Richard (Dick) and I had so much fun at our annual Christmas party for the Sutphen girls and the front office. Dad always enjoyed planning this event & Nancy, Norma & Ruth were always so appreciative…..& fun! She was such a wonderful person who was respected & loved by so many of us and I always ask about her & France when at the plant since her retirement. Upon read her obituary, I was not aware of France’s passing…….he and my dear Pop passed on the same day last year. To you all, may you be able to smile soon with many fond memories of dear Nancy! Best, Dean
