March 3, 2014:
Early this afternoon I received a phone call from Tim, Nancy's husband. I am very sad to report that Nancy WZ8C, is now a silent key.
Nancy passed away last night and will be missed very much by all FISTS members worldwide.
If you wish to send condolences to her family, please send them to the following address:
Tim Lange and Family
Please send this notice to any and all FISTS groups and members to disseminate this information as much as possible.
I sadly send 73, God's Speed Nancy, 88's . . .
Her last message posted to the Fists ML was as follows:
Subject: [Fists] WZ8C
I've been in and out of the hospital for the last couple months with a GI bleeding and the assorted problems that go along with that.
I haven't been ignoring FISTS on purpose, it has just been difficult to feel up to doing anything. But things are looking up and I am starting in on the mail. So you should be getting your membership numbers and code disks in a while.
I'm sorry for any inconvenience.
My wife Nancy passed away Sunday March 2, 2014. She endured many
years of medical challenges and is now resting peacefully. She is leaving
a empty spot in my heart as I'm sure it is the same for all of you. Thank
you for the outpouring of sympathy that I have already received. She
has touched so many people around the world. I am enclosing a link to
her brief obit. There are no services planned at this time. She is being
cremated at this time per her wishes. Please forward this message to
anyone that might like to know. http://tinyurl.com/nancywz8c

Rest In Peace, Nancy.
