She was a longtime Colorado resident, having moved to Colorado in 1973 and Boulder in 1982.
In 1973 Nancy married David Love, and together in 1983, they started a successful and award-winning water resource engineering firm, Love & Associates, located in Louisville, Colorado. In addition to their many professional recognitions for engineering excellence, this firm designed the award-winning Boulder Creek Bike Path, the CU Research Park and the South Platte River Flood Control and Greenways Project in Denver. Nancy was a talented business manager and a natural leader. She was a member of 50 for Colorado and served for several years as the president and on the board of the Louisville Downtown Business Association and was instrumental in forming the Street Faire event and the vision of what downtown Louisville is today.
