Friedfeld, Nancy Jeanne
September 22, 1934 – June 20, 2008
It is with heavy hearts but uplifted spirits that we share the passing of Nancy Jeanne Friedfeld at her home surrounded by family on June 20, 2008. A devoted mother and beloved wife, Nancy was born in Bath, NY on September 22, 1934. After completing nurse training at Buffalo General Hospital, Nancy moved to California where she met her husband of forty-nine years, Sanford Joel Friedfeld. Together they moved to Rancho Palos Verdes where they raised four children, Marla Jeanplong, Mark Friedfeld, Annie Lynch, and Gail Keir, in a loving and busy household. During this time Nancy returned to school at Cal State Long Beach where she graduated with a bachelor's of science in nursing while her proud husband and children watched and cheered. Nancy finished her long career in nursing as a research coordinator for large psychiatric pharmacology studies. In addition to her career and family, Nancy enjoyed singing with The Treblemakers, spending time with her close circle of friends, dancing the jitterbug, and attending musicals and the theater. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, June 28th, at 1:00 p.m. at Green Hills Memorial Park, 27501 South Western Avenue, Rancho Palos Verdes, CA, followed by a gathering at Sandy and Nancy's home in RPV. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Nancy Jeanne Friedfeld Tribute Fund at "The Smile Train" (www.smiletrain.org/goto/Nancy.Friedfeld), an organization she supported for years that provides free cleft palate surgery for children all over the world.
