In Memory

Nancy Wertheimer (Perlman**)

Nancy Wertheimer (Perlman**)

Our dear friend Nancy Wertheimer Perlman passed away in mid-November, 2019, and we will miss her.
She had a wonderful dry sense of humor, she had a wonderful sense of adventure and she loved to travel. Over the years she went on many exciting trips all over the world. She spent her final decades living in Santa Fe, N.M., where in retirement she was a part-time editor, a caregiver-companion, a volunteer with a dog-assistance service and an avid tennis player.

One of the things we did, when we visited her, was go canoeing down the Rio Grande. We remember what it was like trying to have a quiet afternoon after much sightseeing, being startled by her cat, who did not get along with her dog, come flying over our laps, with the dog in pursuit.
Her love of journalism started with her work on Shoreline while at HPHS and continued with various positions with local newspapers. Nancy was a fabulous cook, and loved to have dinner parties. She was the one to go with, to a Johnny Mathis concert. In those days, it was wonderful, wonderful…
Her two sons, Patrick and David survive her.
Hope you’re at peace, Nancy, surrounded by your German shepherds,
 --Greta Goldt Hershinow, Nancy Bilow Paul, Berna Gorenstein Huebner

My friendship with Nancy began when she moved to Lakewood Place and continued on thru school and into Santa Fe.

A fellow Ravinia School classmate, Nancy Garwood Stohl, contacted me about Nancy's death, She had only the little information from her children who were friends of one of the boys.

Thank  you for the memory posting. My favorite memory was when she gave her  grandmother a Nancy Drew book for her birthday.

Nancy was one of my dear friends in high school and part of my "group"… Had lots of fun at slumber parties talking about boys! I shared the love of journalism with her too and we had fun Working on the shoreline.Wish I had spent more time with her at the last reunion.

Nancy and I became friends in our adult years. She lived so near my house...although we never connected for I was at Braeside and she was in Ravinia. A terrific woman who will be missed by many.
