Her obituary is online. Here is a quote from it:
“She practiced law for many years, specializing in mostly commercial litigation. She was a former partner with Miller Johnson Snell & Cummiskey in Kalamazoo, MI from 1988-1997.
Nancy’s and Michael’s lives have been all about animals. She was involved with various humane societies for many years. She founded Partners for Animal Welfare Society, Inc. (P.A.W.S. Hancock) and was the executive director for many years. Nancy’s love for animals began at an early age and continued throughout her adulthood. She nurtured, rescued, and rehabilitated a variety of wildlife, including their own menagerie.”
Sara Johnson an a volunteer at PAWS in response to what will happen next said:
“I don’t have an answer right now,” she said. “Right now, we’re all pretty much devastated and dumbfounded that we’ve lost her.”
It will go on and continue to be successful, I have no doubt.
