A San Francisco lady who put down roots in Healdsburg and became a mainstay in the pews at St. John’s Church died last month: Nancy Aileen Buckley. She lived to see her 100th birthday. From her obituary: “Nancy was a devout Catholic, and her faith drove every decision she made. She was a familiar and loved face in both St. Stephen Church of San Francisco and St. John the Baptist Church of Healdsburg. Nancy spent her summers at her favorite place, the family cabin on Fitch Mountain. You would often find her reading on the deck, humming an Irish tune, and enjoying quality time with her neighbors, whom she considered family on the mountain. She found solace at the River.” Nancy and her husband of 55 years, Bob, leave behind five kids, 10 grandkids and eight great-grandkids. (Source: Legacy.com)
