Nancy Jean Callahan Kells of Syracuse passed away peacefully at home on September 7, 2023. Nancy’s 84 years encompassed fun loving adventures while enjoying the company of family, friends and strangers alike. Born in Syracuse to Charles T.

Nancy’s energetic spirit was reflected via her ignited baton as the Bearcat baton twirler. In 1964, she started her career as a Stenographer with Bristol-Myers Squibb. Her intelligence and wit ultimately elevated Nancy to Senior Coordinator in Print Production in the Advertising and Promotional Dept. Nancy was incredibly proud of career and was able to enjoy retirement in 1994 after 30 years.
