On April 18, the Abendschone Chapter NSDAR donated several items to the Carnegie Library in Eureka Springs. They were given in memory of member Nancy Naas, who faithfully served as registrar for 18 years.
Nancy’s tireless efforts and research helped most of our members achieve membership into the DAR. Nancy passed away January 30, 2016, after enjoying 25 years of retirement in the beautiful Ozarks with husband, Don. Librarian, Loretta Crenshaw, helped us select the items. They highlight a lot about what the DAR represents and what Nancy was interested in – genealogy research, American history, and the Constitution.
“Donation in Memory of Nancy Naas” Eureka Springs Carnegie Library, April 18, 2017
“On behalf of the Abendschone Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, we are happy to donate several items in memory of Nancy Naas, who faithfully served as our Registrar for 18 years. Nancy’s tireless efforts and research helped most of us gain our membership into the DAR.
Nancy passed away January 30, 2016, after enjoying 25 years of retirement in the beautiful Ozarks with husband, Don – a wonderful 55 year marriage. She left behind a son, David, and daughter, Lisa, and several grandchildren.
Nancy was helpful, dedicated, and diligent. She quietly got things done. In addition to the DAR, Nancy gave of her services and talents to many organizations, especially the Holiday Island Community Church. Nancy also helped a lot of people with their computer problems. It is important to mention that there was a fun, jovial side to Nancy! People gravitated to her. Most of all she was our friend!
Librarian, Loretta Crenshaw, helped us select the items to honor Nancy. They highlight a lot about what the DAR represents and what Nancy was interested in – Genealogy research, American History, and the Constitution.
One of the Great Course sets of DVD’s is the “Civil Liberties and the Bill of Rights”. It contains 36 lectures of 30 minutes each. The other course set is the “History of the United States”. It contains 86 lectures, 30 minutes each. The sets may be checked out for three weeks to view at home.
The “Goodspeed Biographical-Historical book of Northwest AR” is a reference book to be used in the library. This one will replace the prior copy that was taken (without permission).
The “Confederate Pension Applications” book and the “Index to AR World War I Soldiers” will each be used by those interested in genealogy research. These were suggested and coordinated by Suzanne Williams.
Each item has a label showing they were donated by the Abendschone Chapter of DAR in Memory of Nancy.
It is with great honor that the Abendschone members donate these items to the Eureka Springs Carnegie Library today in Nancy Naas’ memory.”
