Nancy (Salladay) Gabbrielli and I stayed in touch until her death a few years ago. She worked as an international tour guide for American Express out of Charlotte, NC, and was able to live her dream of making many trips to Italy before her illness caught up with her. She married an Italian man whom she deeply loved. I still think of her, and miss her.  A.J. Alice-Jane Ellis Herbert

Nancy was so full of life, and fun to be around; it is difficult to think of her as gone.  I hope the years she had were happy ones because she brought joy to those around her.

Nancy and I were good friends - mostly in junior high at Meadowlawn, but we maintained our friendship throughout our days at Northeast.

I remember mostly how Nancy loved music and sewing. She could make just about anything. I always thought she had a future in design. I'll never forget when she became a huge fan of Herman's Hermits and cut her hair like "Herman." Then she grew it out and cut it to look like Mark Lindsay of Paul Revere and the Raiders. She was fearless when it came to doing her own thing. I always admired that in Nancy.
