Neighbor Profile: Nancy Fouks Brings Beauty to the Community with Flowers and a Greeting | New



Nancy Fouks is the first face many see when they enter O’Connell funeral homes. Her empathetic presence provides a bright spot for many members of the community. She also brings beauty to the whole community, by planting the gardens in the city parks.

What brought you to O’Connell?

I have been contacted by O’Connell’s to see if I would be interested in being a hostess. Tom O’Connell asked me to give him two weeks and see what I thought about it. I explained to her that I cried watching ads about homeless dogs and questioned my ability to hold back tears at the funeral home. He reassured me that it was normal to show emotion.

I didn’t need a two week trial. I knew after having made two visits that this job suited me perfectly!

What do you like about your role there?

I love people and stand by their side as they face their difficult losses. The O’Connell staff are like family to me. We work very closely as a team. They are the best.

When people look around town, what gardens have you created?

The city gardens that I maintain are Lakefront, Prospect Park, Williams Park, and Corky’s Pier.

Why do you want to get involved in these community efforts?

I like to get involved because I’m with two of my favorite things… people and flowers.

What impact do you hope these efforts will have on the community?

I hope the people of Hudson and the surrounding communities find O’Connell’s as a very caring personal funeral home. It is a family business with deep roots in the community. I was mentored by the best funeral director, Tom O’Connell.

I hope the gardens provide the community with the beauty of Mother Nature at its best.
