Paul, it will be the little things that all of us will remember about Nancy, the quiet moments, the smiles, the laughter. And although it may seem hard right now, it will be the memories of these little things that help to push away the pain and bring the smiles back again. Death has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal. With our deepest condolences on the loss of Nancy, our thoughts and prayers are with you in this difficult time. Love, Joni, Charlie, Todd, Cindy, Todd Jr., and Jessica

I have fond memories of Nancy.
I always called her by her nickname Giz.
I met her at Custer High School.
She was smart, friendly
Always smiling and laughing.
We also went to UW Whitewater together.
We were friends at Custer High School and UW Whitewater.
We were in the same sorority .
When she pledged she chose me as her “Big Sis”
It was an honor for me.
I can still hear her cute giggle.
Always light hearted and fun to be with.
I have a memory of my Dad picking up Nancy and I and dropping her off at an apartment building in Milwaukee on the last day o college.

That is my last recollection of her.
Be at peace in Heaven dear sister.
Sincerely with love

Nancy(Giz) Geisler,
A person that I was fortunate to have known for 50 years. What stands out for me about Nancy was her “Love for Life” and her understanding of what it took to be a true friend.I will remember her great smile, laugh and her sense of adventure. She made it so much fun to be around her. Never one to dwell on her own struggles, she always cheered me up with my own worries and stresses.
Small in stature, but the “leader of the pack of long time girlfriends” she was the sparkplug of our group, and each of us will be sad for a long, long time as we will greatly miss her presence in our lives. Your forever friend, Mary Crump Checkai

Dan & Paul,

Kim and I would like pass along our deepest sympathies. Nancy was our dear friend and we truly loved her. She was the kindest and sweetest person we both knew. She was easy to laugh and the times Dan we shared with both of you cannot be replaced. Sometimes it’s hard to understand why people like her are taken from us when it isn’t time. Fortunately we have the memories of her that can’t be taken away!

Marshall and Kim

Dan and Raine, I’m wishing you both peace to bring comfort, courage to face the days ahead, and loving memories to forever hold in your hearts. Dan, she always smiled and brightened up when she spoke of you. Raine, she loved you with all her heart, as you were her bright spot. Nancy will truly be missed, she will also be in my heart forever. Love, Joni
