TICONDEROGA, N.Y. — Nancy Jean Law, 70, passed away surrounded by her loving family Sunday, June 23, 2013 at her home on Lake George following a long and courageous battle with cancer.

A longtime active member of the Saratoga Springs United Methodist Church, Nancy served as president of United Methodist Women both locally and regionally and as a Trustee with the Troy Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church. She also was a longtime and early supporter of the Reconciling Ministries Network.

Nancy returned to teaching at Greenwich Central Schools in the mid-1980s and served as a remedial reading and mathematics teacher for more than two decades before retirement in 2005.
