I always enjoyed Nancy's flair for style and her hair dos. She was friendly and charming. RIP

Nancy and I knew each other since kindergarten at Aptos Elementary.  She was an only child of older parents. We did things together throughout the years. When we were very young she would come over to our chicken ranch on Valencia Road to play.  From old photos I no longer have, she was always very nicely dressed. When we had our 25th Aptos reunion she was still living in the house she grew up in along Highway 1.  I remember her very long fingernails and tall hairstyle.  Wasn't she a beautician?  I don't know if she had children.  You were a gentle woman Nancy. R.I.P old friend.

Nancy Wardlow. . . When I moved to Aptos from San Jose in the middle of 4th grade, Nancy and Patty Lawrence befriended me. They taught me how to dance the "bop" because we weren't doing that dance where I came from !  Nancy was such a sweet, innocent girl with long hair usually in a pony-tail or braids.  We had so much fun together.  We were on the softball team that played and practiced after school.  Aptos would play against Corralitos and Salsipuedes and Freedom on Friday afternoons.  I played 1st base and Nancy played second because she had such a good arm and could make the throw from second to home-plate.  I didn't have that arm, but I could sure catch !wink  We didn't see each other much in high school, but I was amazed when I saw Nancy at reunions with her light brown hair dyed black and in a bee-hive.  And her long, long fingernails. . . these were things she would never had done before.  She was such a demure and sweet little girl and became a woman who knew her own heart and followed her dream.  She was married to a guy named Gary. . . I believe he was in our class.  I remember you so fondly, Nancy.  You were taken too soon.  You would have LOVED our 50th reunion and I'd be eager to see the color of your hair.  You are missed.

I attended Aptos School in the 7th & 8th grades & Nancy was among several girls I became friends with in class & in Girl Scouts.  In addition to sharing names, our Dad's were pilots in Civilian Air Transport during WWII.  I recall when we visited each other our Dad's would sit & visit together.  My Dad lived in Rio Del Mar during the War & was acquainted with many folks in Aptos....I'm guessing he knew Nancy's Dad for many years.  High School changed a lot of us....Nancy became very fashionable & "popular!"  I became more shy & unapproachable, yet she always had a laugh & a smile for me when we met in the halls of Watsonvile HS.  I was sorry to hear of her passing....I believe she lived in the North West & was married with several children.

Nancy Wardlow Marshall was my very dear friend for many years. I was her maid of honor & we shared many secrets that only girlfriends can share. Nancy was beautiful inside & out, I miss her to this day . Nancy married Gary & they had five children. Brian, Tina, Joey, Adam & Andrew. She passed away 15 years ago from lung cancer never could give up cigarettes. She left behind also two grandsons. Nancy was an eccentric she loved. Big hair lots of makeup jewelry an holidays especially Halloween her favorite she would go all out for the kids spook house dead body's the whole theme. Her an her family moved to Idaho after the earthquake, so the day before her passing I talked to her on the phone an said our goodbyes I told her I loved her until we meet again. She passed on July 3 rd  is here in Watsonville laid to rest next to her parents being an only child.
