October 10, 2018, in Ridgefield, Connecticut.

Born in Chicago to Kenneth and Margaret Fry, Nancy attended George Washington University and Reed before graduating from Antioch College. She went on to earn a graduate degree from Teachers College at Columbia University.

Nancy was married to Joseph Moran and then to Oliver Houghton. She worked at Bell Labs in New York, the New York Life Insurance Company, and DuPont. She was co-owner of the Bohemia River Marina in Chesapeake City, Maryland. Her career in education included teaching at Murray Avenue School in Larchmont, New York; public schools in Cecil County, Maryland; the Pan American School of Bahia in Salvador, Brazil; the International School of Turin in Turin, Italy; Pace University; and Westchester Community College. Nancy taught well into her late 80s; and continued to volunteer tutor until this year. She was a fierce advocate for math competence and improved math instruction, and a passionate world traveler.

She is survived by her sons, Douglas and Clifford Moran.
