Nancy was born on November 24, 1946 in Summit, NJ.  The daughter of the late Walter and Estelle Mitsch Bittman, she spent her childhood in New Providence, NJ. She spent her adult years in residing in Califon and Lebanon, NJ. 

A graduate of  Montclair University where she majored in English and Special Education,   Nancy  enjoyed a wonderful tenure as  a Special Education teacher at Dunellen, NJ High School where she taught until her retirement in  1989.   

Nancy was a life-long learner, and she had a brilliant mind. She was a fabulous listener who always had time for others.  She went on to further her  education by obtaining two master’s degrees.  She was a voracious reader and she loved to travel.  She often visited with friends in Florida and  Las Vegas, and she thoroughly enjoyed her trips to Denmark, China, Japan, and Paris.  She loved to write poetry and was so proud to have several pieces published.  As a young adult she was an accomplished skier.  She was a member of the Ski Patrol at Hunter Mountain in New York State for nineteen years. 

Friendships were always nurtured. Nancy was humble and kind.  She cared about everyone, and she sought nothing in return  She loved to entertain, often bring people together.  She was an outstanding cook and baker.  She was delighted to be published in Food & Wine Magazine.  Her greatest enjoyments were spending time with people, attending the theater, and eating out…Her best days ever were doing all three  in New York City.   

Nancy was a member of the Dunellen Education Association, the New Jersey Education Association, and the National Education Association.  She was also a member of the Fairmount Presbyterian Church Family.  She was a deacon for many years, and she supported all the Church functions.  She helped plan the Church’s first Women’s Tea, for which she was the head chef.  Nancy was always there to assist others in need.
