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.

Born on July 14, 1942 in Troy, N.Y., Nancy was raised in Waterford, N.Y., as the daughter of the late Ruth Esther King Costello and Nelson Joseph Costello. Nancy earned a bachelor's degree from Drew University in Madison, N.J., and a master's degree from Syracuse University.

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. She made her home in Ticonderoga shortly after retirement, enjoying the beauty and scenery of Lake George and the Adirondacks for the remainder of her life.
