Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Yesterday the Lord called Nancy home. I have known Nancy for over 18 years and to say that she was special is just not enough. She was a wonderful lady. I don’t think she ever met a stranger. She was kind and generous with her time. Between her and I we must have taught thousands of children in our school system and other events. She was a true teacher and a great friend. I am going to miss her at Creekside Pines. She played the piano before I preach God’s Word on the first and third Sunday. She will be missed by many. I am comforted knowing that she is with our Father.
“Trust all of God’s words and remember, nothing is lost forever in the Kingdom of our Lord.” We will see her again one day.
God bless you all.
When I joined Keep Paulding Beautiful and I was introduced to Nancy the first thing I noticed about her is her big smile. She always made everyone feel welcome and important. She loved this community and the children held a special place with her. Her love for the environment and children came through when she displayed and taught with the Enviroscapes. As is her way, I would learn, she was humble. We all praised her for the short film she made about the Enviroscapes, but she would just laugh and down play it. Every time I would see her she had a smile and good things to say. How blessed I feel to have had the honor of working with her through the Keep Paulding Beautiful Commission.
I worked with Nancy teaching Enviroscape and the Chipper events. She was a blessing to work with and was always very positive and proactive. Keep Paulding Beautiful meant a lot to her and I am proud to have served beside her. She will be dearly missed by us all
With the passing of Nancy Hightower, our community has lost a valuable proponent of the conservation beautification of our environment, as well as an informed educator of our youth. Since its inception in the early 2000's, the board of Keep Paulding Beautiful has promoted recycling, litter control and overall enhancement of our county and Nancy has always been a vital member of this team. She acted as an officer of this group and always guided the proceedings and direction of its efforts. Using her experience as an elementary school teacher, she has brought the educational component of the Enviroscape the thousands of Paulding County's 3rd grade students. The importance of this demonstration of the effects of pollution resonated with these young people who often reminded her in later years that they remembered her lessons. A lady of great faith, Nancy always had a smile and a kind word for everyone around her and many Sundays could be heard playing the piano for church services. She will be sorely missed and fondly remembered by her family, friends and the board of Keep Paulding Beautifu
