Nancy Bennett Elliott, Genius
Nancy was a computer whiz, an artist, a sewing machine repairwoman; she was and did whatever she decided to be and do. She lived only 42 years, but she packed in a lot of livin! She was in a wheelchair from the age of (if I remember correctly) 18 on. She would cheerfully throw her wheelchair into the back seat and charge off into the wild blue yonder. She was one of the most amazingly blazingly brilliant people I have ever known. She had a wicked wit and a sang little songs all day long at work, cheering everyone's day. I am SO grateful for having known her.
