Nancy M.  Vandett 
June 19, 1945 - September 12, 2013

Debra West

Jackson, MS

Nancy had an incredible mind and a wicked sense of humor. She was one of my mentors. My favorite memory of her comes from a day, when we both worked at MSCC, that she received a phone call from a little old lady who, according to Nancy, just seemed to want to talk. The conversation had nothing to do with Nancy or MSCC, but Dr. Vandett kindly let the lady ramble on in conversation until she got talked out. To Dr. V, time was a precious commodity, but she said she didn't have the heart to stop the lady, because she felt the lady was lonely.
The lady was hard of hearing and thought - when Nancy identified herself upon answering the phone as Dr. Vandett - that she had said her name was Dottie. She thanked Dottie profusely for talking with her before she hung up. We all got a big laugh out of that story, and from that day forward, Nancy was always Dottie to me. R.I.P., dear friend. You will be missed.

Nancy, I am sure you are in a better place than we are. It was a privilege working with the likes of you in Arkansas. Higher education in the state and the lives of many are much better because of your work, your persistence and your integrity. For that alone the Lord has special spot for you.

Dr. Vandett, thank you for your encouragement and for being the best thesis editor ever but mainly for your strength and caring for your friends and colleagues by providing superior educational leadership for so many years. Your hard work will be remembered by many.

Nancy was such a beloved friend of mine from our VA Tech years in post-grad school! We spent many hours together doing research together. Nancy was such an excellent writer, and I was not, so she taught me how to write. Thankfully, after losing contact for many years, Face Book brought us back together. She will always be in my heart and memories! Jared, I know your heart is empty, for I know what a wonderful mother Nancy was. However, I hope your many wonderful memories of her wonderful sense of humor will always bring a smile to your face! I still love you!

Our children knew each other before we did. We met in an inglorious manner as we both learned we would be grandmothers together - in 3 months! We weathered that storm and banded together for several others for our blended family over the course of the next 19 years. Our friendship and respect grew over these years. I am delighted that our grandson inherited your remarkable intelligence and genes!

I will do all that I can to help your "number one son" continue through this life. We planned many things together to help him after you had to leave him, and I will stand by him.

With love and many memories!
