We are deeply saddened to announce that Nancy Friedrich, our friend and FSS faculty member for Hawaii, passed in the early morning of October 16 after a struggle with cancer.
Nancy’s daughter Celia Doss posted this on Nancy’s Facebook site:
“My beautiful mom Nancy Friedrich [link to Nancy’s Facebook site] rallied for a family visit Tuesday afternoon. She passed away peacefully this morning at 2:40 am with my dad Jimmy and me comforting her. She was the best mom, wife, sister and healer to all of us blessed to know her. Sunny Ananda [daughter] arrives Monday. We appreciate all the love from friends and family.”
Many friends and family have posted comments on Nancy’s Facebook site. The FSS posted:
FSS for Nancy Friedrich
Dear friends and family of Nancy Friedrich,
An amazing soul has transitioned. Nancy was such a fine person: gentle, wise, kind, ethical, and giving. It was a privilege working with her as part of the Foundation for Shamanic Studies faculty and being her friend. She carried a quiet peace within that touched us all. We send our deepest sympathies for your personal loss. We, too, will greatly miss her.
Michael Harner, Sandra Harner, and Susan Mokelke
Nancy was a wonderful healer, teacher, mother, grandmother and friend.
