    Some of my earliest memories were of going to the Tyson’s home in Bedford. I recall Nancy’s kindness, smile and sense of humor! My condolences to her family. May God bless and comfort you as you go through the grieving process!

      I met my dear and wonderful friend Mrs Nancy Tyson a little more than three years ago. Nancy enjoyed talking about her family children, grand and great. Nancy was an artist she enjoyed painting, knitting, sewing, and gardening. A bowling instructor and made clothes for less fortunate children. Nancy amazed me she took pride in her work she was a perfectionist. I would tell Nancy you have inspired me to not just give my best to God but also to myself. Nancy also had the beautiful quality of being reasonable, Nancy attracted people she made everyone feel at home. Nancy and I talked a lot about our home town good old West Virginia and working in an office where she could watch her children making sure her family values were being molded. I will miss my friend. ❤️To Nancy Tyson Family
