Mrs. Kick was my favorite teacher in school. I always looked forward to coming to class. Even though it’s been 14 years since I have had her as a teacher I still remember “Kick Kingdom” and the fun, quirky, compassionate teacher that she was. I will miss her greatly.

My friend and sister in Christ. You've always persued excellence, wether it was choosing a paint color or deciding the most effective way to help the after school club kids memorize scripture, I loved that about you! God gave you the gift of teaching and you utilized it so well! I will miss you but am grateful to have had such a lovely faithful woman of God influence my life. Knowing I will see you again in heaven brings unspeakable peace.

I am deeply saddened by Nancy’s passing. She was a wonderful role model for me as a young teacher at Newfane, with her boundless energy, positive outlook, and deep belief in the children she taught. She was a fantastic teacher and an even better person. My sincerest condolences to the entire Kick family.

Nancy was both an amazing person and teacher. She was the eternal cheerleader for her students and a little dynamo in "Kick Kingdom" (what she affectionately called her classroom). I will miss you my "little buddy".

Teacher to Teacher... in a public school.... Nancy was a great encourager. Loved her laughter, and her sweet little church mouse sneeze. :) See you in heaven, sweet girl. xo

I am thankful to have met a mom who cherished her children but went on to cherish other children who needed her support and love. She had such a tender heart and the sweetest smile. What rejoicing in Heaven about an amazing lady

I remember Mrs. Kick (patient & sweet😊) teaching me to cross stitch as a young girl. I saved it in my hope chest for many years, and then made it into a pillow for family to enjoy! Looking forward to reunion in heaven!

Many great memories of Nancy, especially of her faithfulness and love for our Savior Jesus Christ. The many ways in which she served at Grace church and led by example of what a servants heart looks like in action. Nancy's memory will always be in our hearts.

So sad to hear of Nancy’s passing. She was such a fighter. I worked with her for many years at the high school. She was a great teacher and a role model to all students and staff. My prayers are with you and your family at this difficult time.

Nancy was an inspiration to all! She was a woman after God’s own heart and put Him first and foremost. She was a great wife, mother, grandmother, friend, teacher and mentor to her family, friends and all those she touched.

I have been privileged to be able to have worked along side of her serving God and I have been blessed to have been able to call her friend. In my opinion, she was taken too soon! But... God’s plan is perfect... We need to trust God’s plan and Nancy would agree!

I’m sad that she is no longer on this side of heaven but I’m happy that she is no longer suffering. I can vision her standing in front of God and hearing... Well done, Good and Faithful servant
...! We loss a great woman of faith on this side of heaven but I am glad that she is in the presence of Her Lord and Savior!

Congratulations on your relocation from earth to Your heavenly home. You will be greatly missed! Our loss is Heaven’s gain! Until we meet again on the other side of heaven!

I’m moved to tears with this sad news. Nancy was esteemed as a teacher. Nancy elevated the teaching profession. She was so loving, caring, talented and dedicated. Each of her students

could look up to Nancy as a teacher who would give all to lift her students and pave the way for each to achieve success.

Nancy, we admired you , loved you and respected you. Your passing is a profound loss. We pray your precious family and friends will find comfort and solace in their grief.

Nancy was an inspiration to all. A great wife, mother, teacher, friend, role model, prayer warrior and a great example of a woman after God’s own heart. A life, that in my opinion, was taken too soon but God needed her more.

I am very sad to lose Nancy on this side of heaven but I am happy to know that she is in the presence of Her Lord and Savior. Congratulations on the move home in heaven. I can already hear God saying to you, Well Done, Good and faithfully servant. I am thankful and have been blessed with the time God has allowed me to have served along side of you and known you! Til we meet again my sweet friend.
