2 Condolences for Nancy (Scudder) Leefeldt

  • My thoughts and prayers are with all of Nancy’s family. We are cousins through my mom’s side of the family and although we only met a few times, my mother always talked about her side of the family with a lot of love.

  • I was a friend when she attended The Journey church. She was (and still is) a mighty woman of God. I have a Thanksgiving cactus that she propagated for me from a 50-year-old stock that was her mother’s. I cherish that plant in Nancy’s name. I can’t wait to see you in heaven, my friend.
