Nancy Childhood

Nancy grew up in a small town near Albany in New York.

She had a happy childhood, playing outside and enjoying nature. 

She has fond memories of playing with other kids in the neighborhood and spending time alone in nature, like floating sticks in a stream, sitting among pine trees, and picking berries. 

She and her sister had a unique signal to return home, like a cowbell sound that called them back from their outdoor adventures. 

Inside their home, her parents kept a worn-out couch in the living room, and it was just for Nancy and her sister to jump and play on. 

It was a fun and playful part of their home life. 

Though Nancy grew up in a typical small town, her parents  were anything but conventional. 

Her father was an educator, and both her parents had open-minded views for their time. 

Their home was different from the typical 1950s suburban houses. It was artistic, messy, and filled with creativity. 

While many parents during that time were focused on conforming and fitting in with societal norms. 

Nancy‘s parents are not like that. 

They encouraged Nancy and her sister to explore and follow their interests, allowing them to pursue their dream.


She was born on February 9, 1944, in the United States. She is 79 years old as of 2023
