"I am saddened to learn of Mrs. Dalti's passing. I was away at the time of her passing. I will always appreciate her and Mr Dalti's friendship over the many years. Having served with Mr. Dalti in 1977 as a member of the School Committee. Her passing leaves another hole in the history of North Smithfield as a TRUE supporter of NS. She was always kind to keep in touch and wish me the best every time I saw her or woul post on social media. My deepest condolences on her passing to the entire family."

I met her through my Uncle Pete Mussio and we would all get together once in awhile for family gatherings over a nice dinner. So sorry for the Dalti?s family loss as I know Nancy will be very much missed by all of you. Sending our prayers to all of you. Michelle and Lee Pawley from Sarnia , Ontario Canada (Peters Niece)"
