Janet, Bill & Patty,
I just learned of Nancy’s passing and am so sorry. We were best friends in high school and I have thought about her a lot in all these years. My deepest condolences to you all. I was surprised to see her last name McInnis which is my grandparents name, same spelling. Was she married in saginaw? I would love to know a little about her life after high school.

Nancy and I began teaching at Bonham the same year along with Kim Larson & Judy Erwin. She and Kim were always together and always made us laugh. Although I haven't seen her much since she left Bonham, but still considered her a good friend. Rest in peace friend.

My condolences and prayers for Nancy's family. I knew her through FAAS (Friends of Arlington Animal Services). Whether she was at FAAS or volunteering at the Animal Shelter, her positive attitude was amazing. Her beautiful smile lit up the whole room and her compassion for her friends and all creatures was inspiring. We will so miss her and all she has brought to our group. RIP Nancy.

I will so miss Nancy's beautiful smile that lit up the whole room. We volunteered together with the FAAS (Friends of Arlington Animal Services) and her enthusiasm and positive spirit were contagious. She was compassionate to everyone from her friends to all creatures and we all loved her. Condolences to her family. It was too soon.

I knew Nancy through FAAS. What a funny lady, I always looked forward to seeing her at the meetings and talking to her. She loved the animals, and she is now their angel.

Rest in peace Nancy, I will miss you.

I'm was Ms. McInnis kindergarten class of '86 @ Bonham . She was hired on during the school year and I was moved into her class ( I gave a great memory to remember that clearly ) and after all these years I stayed in contacted with her not as often as I would've liked but after all these years from 5yrs old to now 34yr Ms. McInnis was obviously my favorite teacher ( she's the only one I've ever stayed in contact with ) she definitely left a footprint in my heart and I haven't and will never forget you Mc.Innis !!

Nancy and I volunteered together at the Arlington Animal Shelter. She was always warm, kind, and hard working and never failed to thank people for coming in. I quickly grew very fond of her and am so sorry that she has gone so soon. My best wishes to her family.

My sincerely sympathy to you all. Nancy and I belonged to FAAS together and shared a lot of interests in animals. I was so sorry to hear about her health and we will miss her a bunch at FAAS and even walking in the neighborhood with Cerci.
