Nancy was born in Saratoga Springs to her parents, Helen and John Dowd of Nelson Avenue on July 12, 1949, when her mother announced to her older sisters that they had to leave the carousel at Kaydeross Park so Mommy could go to the hospital.

Nancy established Albany Intertravel, a travel agency which she ran for many years. She enjoyed summers working at the Saratoga Racecourse and was employed by Sodexo at General Electric Research Center. She spent her retirement years working at Kane’s Fine Wine & Spirits 

Ned and Nancy enjoyed great travel adventures, from finding Fanning Island in the Central Pacific Ocean, to locating Ned’s grand uncle’s military grave in France, to attending family weddings in County Kerry, Berlin, and Santiago de Compostela. 

Graveside services will be 12 p.m. Saturday, November 27, 2021, at St. Peter’s Cemetery on West Ave.
