  1. I met her two summers past at the Boscobel Shakespeare performance of Romeo and Juliet. She was familiar looking and we began to chat and said she had never been to Boscobel before and was up here house sitting for a friend. She revealed she was Nancy on the House of Cards.
    She was so friendly and personable, I looked for her in every episode after that.
    So sorry for her loss.

    This is a sorrowful, heartfelt, soulfelt tremendous loss for humankind. When one knows the value of an excellent executive secretary, and accomplished actress, one is especially in tune with this loss. It is the “Nancy’s” of the world who make things happen!
