Nancy Ann Schaar (nee Smerdel) passed into God’s embrace at the age of 70 on December 30, 2019, after a 2 year battle with glioblastoma. She now joins her husband, Clifford Kenneth Schaar, whom predeceased her in 2007. Both spouses were in the Army and may have me there, although they were always a bit vague about the origin of their relationship admitting only to knowing one another much longer than the years listed on their marriage license.

Nancy was born January 5, 1949, in Ohio and would become the eldest of her parents, Elizabeth and Joseph (deceased). In addition to her mother, she is survived by her siblings Margaret, Leland (Lorelei), Carl, and Richard (Janet), as well as many nieces and nephews.

She loved family and of all her careers, her favorite to be was a mom—and she was the best at it. Her children Christina (Ben), Michael (Katrina), and Kimberly all survive her as well as her grandchildren, Danielle and her son Odin, Zachary, Izabella, and Cynthia. She raised strong children and taught them to stand up for themselves and each other. She never started a fight but was not one you wanted to provoke. She was a friend to everyone she met and her absence from this Earth will not go unnoticed. She made sure her children were strong enough to carry on in her absence. Although, it will not be easy, Nancy was a wonderful mother but also our confidant and friend. We love you mom.

Cremation is being handled by Malloy & Esposito and a private celebration of her life will take place this Spring. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the American Cancer Society.


Kimberly Kay Herron aged 54, passed away on December 24, 2019. Kim was the beloved partner of Gerald Miles for over 25 years. Mother to Tristian and Tara Herron. Daughter of James and Nina Herron. Grandmother to Mirra and Nova Herron.

Kim was born June 27, 1965. In her younger years, Kim was a competitive figure skating champion. She was loved by many and always full of laughter. She had a laugh that could be heard a mile away and the brightest smile in the room. She could make friends with anyone and always was the life of the party. Kim loved to be outdoors and go camping with her Jerry and her pup Felix. Her granddaughters were the light of her life and she loved spending time with family and friends. Kim also loved coloring and crafting. She lived her life to the fullest and will be sorely missed by everyone around her.

The family has decided to have an intimate service for family only. There will be a Celebration of Life memorial at Gerald and Kims home on June 27th, her birthday. Details to follow.
