Obituary

Our sister Nancy left us on June 5th, 2022.  She was born on May 1st, 1951 as one half of twin daughters to Eleanore and Verge Surman.  Nancy had cerebral palsy, but it didn’t have her.  She couldn’t speak but she said more than most.  She loved traveling and seeing new sights.  Nancy loved animals, music, and especially Elvis.  Her smile came quickly and she enjoyed being with people.  She loved to play games and was as competitive as anyone.  Nancy was especially proud of her involvement with the therapy dog program and her own therapy dog, Heidi.  Not being able to speak, Nancy spent years training Heidi to respond to sign language.  Nancy and Heidi brought a lot of joy to people, she always enjoyed being able to give back.  She rode horses through BEAMING, Inc. of Neenah and enjoyed that for several years.  Nancy spent her later years in assisted living at Island Shores in Neenah where she made friends with residents and staff alike, putting smiles on their face or getting a laugh out of them. She had an incredible soul. Nancy is survived by her sister, Sandy (Bob) Frozé, her twin sister, Patti (Mark) Lorge, her special aunt Carol Liebhauser, and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews.  She was preceded in death by her parents Eleanore “Toots” and Verge Surman.
