Nancy was born June 14, 1943, in Benton Harbor, Mich., and grew up in nearby St. Joseph, Mich. A nature and wildlife lover, Nancy took the opportunity in her youth to play and explore the outdoors at Stockbridge — her family’s farm and horseback riding school. Growing up around horses, she was a natural equestrian, spending time helping at the stables doing everything from teaching riding lessons to taking care of the horses. Her students, family, and friends all knew her by Susie while at Stockbridge Farm.
Nancy eventually left Michigan to attend high school at Sanford School in Hockessan, Del. After graduating in 1963, she pursued her passion for horseback riding, and subsequently enrolled in the Potomac Horse Center in Potomac, Md. She excelled and was invited to try out for the 1968 Summer Olympics Equestrian Show Jumping Team. Although she didn’t go to the Olympics, she earned her Horse Mastership Certification in 1967, and became an accomplished horseback riding instructor, licensed to teach in Massachusetts and Connecticut, where she eventually settled. Nancy taught lessons but devoted herself to taking care of her three children.
Nancy was also a life-long lover of dogs, and later in life, owned her beloved Newfoundlands, including her dear Belle, Ellie, and Sterling. She became involved in the Newfoundland Club of New England where she proudly worked with her dogs, and with the help of others, getting them certified in water rescue and draft work.
In the last 10 years she enjoyed hosting sleepovers for her two grandchildren, Nora and Liam.  
She leaves her daughter, Abigail C. Miller (nee Carreno), son-in-law, Rick Miller, granddaughter, Nora Miller, and grandson, Liam Miller of Spencer, Mass.; her son, Hunter Carreno of Woodstock and her son, Justin T.
