Condolences left for Nancy K. Johnson:
Where does the time go and how does life pass us by so quickly? I've known Nancy since 1971 when I began working at the FRB St. Louis as a young, snot-nosed kid. Nancy trained me on her old job producing what we called "The Weekly" and became my supervisor. She was my mentor, my boss, my teacher, but most of all she was my friend. She always had a kind word for anyone and everyone and exhibited great patience beyond what is humanly possible. I know because she had to deal with my strong willed ways and tame them. We've never missed a birthday and always looked forward to seeing each other at our 25 year dinner each year. I have such admiration , love and respect for this strong woman as she never gave up and she and Bert would travel anywhere and everywhere despite her handicap. She took everything in stride and when she was not able to do certain things, she found another way to accomplish them. Nancy mentored me even after her retirement and I am grateful that she was always there for me. Nancy is a one of a kind gem and now she's at peace and with her beloved Bert. I shall always remember and love you, my dear friend.
