I think my mother was friends with Nancy, and I am sorry for your loss.

Oh dear Nan, what delight in my life I had while campaigning with you! In the pouring rain, and freezing cold... we laughed for hours! Loving loyalty should be on your headstone. Will also miss the baked Triscuits that we still eat.. Nanny crackers! God speed, sweet friend.

I remember Nancy Bush-Ellis as very down-to-earth, engaging, very friendly person. She endorsed me when I ran for the State Committee late 80's, Reagan's second term. My sincere condolences to her family and children. Deborah Brownlie, Rockport, MA. 1-16-2020.

She was such a wonderful woman. Remember her riding her bike around town and many times her dog was running along side. Sorry for your loss!

It was my grandmother Mrs, Ruby Stevens who was hired as a live in nanny when Joe was a small child. The Ellis family loved her as did we all. Mrs. Ellis was always congenial and welcoming whenever the Stevens family was visiting. Sandra Firth Parshall

To Nancy's family. I have lovely memories of your mother and father while growing up in Concord back in the 50's and 60's. The family dog (a Spaniel) used to wander from Sudbury Road and end up on our doorstep at Wood Street. My Dad (Dave Williams) would load the pup into the car to return him/her home. Usually that took quite a long time as there would be a political discussion once the pup was home.....and those conversations would continue on the local as well as national level for years to come. When your uncle #41 was elected President, your Mom needed a few formal dresses/gowns and borrowed one from my Mum (Gloria). There was a standing chuckle in our house that though invited to the inauguration and balls, only the dress went. I also recall both of your parents at The Boat House on the Sudbury River when George Rohan ran against Chet Atkins for state rep in 1970. Everyone sat around a long table addressing and stuffing envelopes to send out for the campaign. Lots of spirited conversations took place over the nights we spent helping George. Even after your wonderful father passed, your Mom stayed in touch; and when my Dad passed, she was quick to call my Mum with words of support....very loving of her. She was truly quite a lady and you all are so fortunate to have had her as long as you did. May she Rest In Peace and may your memories bring smiles and laughter where today you feel your loss.
