Condolence From: David Schneller

There are so many words I wish to say about My Grandmother Nancy that I struggle to pull them all into focus. I guess the two central ones would be acceptance and support. No matter what I wanted to do or direction I took she would always accept and support me without any feelings of judgement. Now don’t be confused: this is not to imply a cowboy world of no rules. I clearly remember the force of will she brought on grocery day when I ate the entire brick of Cabot Sharp White Cheddar which I cut in quarter inch strips and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar, or the time I ate so many green beans from the garden she could not make her dish for the night’s company. My grandmother could no doubt be firm, but would always return to acceptance and support. For me, our families, and the network of friends built over many years. Nancy was so many things to each of us, and in many cases the rock that brought us together. In her passing I wish all of us can be the rocks of acceptance and support to keep our friends and family together. Thank you with all my heart granny Nancy, for supporting me and accepting that precocious child, and helping forge the man I became.

Condolence From: Jenny Schneller
Condolence: With deepest sadness and sympathy, hopefully sharing this memory helps a little:
One of my favorite things about Nancy were her stories. Like the one about David watching a cat eat mouse in the garden and declare “Personally I prefer macaroni and cheese.” Or the one about dolphins being shaped like a wheel with fins all around because when you watch them swim across the ocean, that’s what they must look like when you take them out of the water. Or the one where spiderwebs covered in dew are really fairy laundry laid out to dry in the sun. Or the real reason she hated rhubarb.

Her stories drew you in and made you feel welcome and trusted. They made you feel like you shared a magical secret. And Nancy loved to share them. Some of her best Christmas gifts were the books by Maine authors and illustrators she sent to Grace and Christopher each year. They were a connection with so many of the things she loved: Maine, writers, her family.

And she wanted to hear your stories too. When we came to visit, she always asked “So how have you been?” or “What have you been doing?” and listened carefully to the answers, and wanted to see pictures of places we had been, or hear about people we had seen.

Nancy had so many stories from her life, from her family, events, travels, adventures, all of the experiences with people she knew and loved, the times she shared with her family over the years. And sharing those stories with an open and loving heart created a sense that no matter where you might visit her, you were home and part of the family. I will miss that magic deeply. Thank you Nancy, for sharing your stories with me.

Condolence From: Anne Rock
Condolence: My family lived in the Ridgewood/Bellflower neighborhood and my brother and I were friends with the Schneller kids. I remember Nancy so well, always welcoming kids into her home. I remember when she and her husband would dress up at Halloween to hand out candy and I was too scared to ever go to the door for trick-or-treat. The Schneller home was always a busy, warm place to play as a kid. My condolences to the family. What a long and wonderful life she had. May you all be comforted by millions of memories.

Condolence: It feels unreal that you have passed away, even though I was with you throughout your brief illness. I cherish the times we have had together. You were the best Mom , such a role model, and such a good and loving person. You lived life to it's fullest. I was for as long as I can remember so proud to say that I was the daughter of such an amazing person. I miss you so Mom, until we meet again.

She will be always cherished in memory by all who knew her and those whose lives she touched. She gave much to her family and community, and nourished many friendships over the years. How wonderful to leave a legacy like that!
Our very deepest sympathy to all the family, with love, J & L Clayton

Condolence: I so enjoyed Nancy. She was a wonderful conversationalist and always happy to see people and talk. It was such a short time ago that I just ran into her at Thomaston Grocery. Good heavens, how quickly things change. The world will miss her good humor and beautiful smile.She and Ed were two peas in a pod. Patricia Hubbard
