The love for Nancy Ann (Heidrick) Gnoss was tangibly abundant this past week, as more than 600 relatives, friends and even acquaintances filled the Heidrick Ag History Center museum and banquet hall to celebrate her life on January 10. Although we will miss Nancy’s spirit at the museum, we are honored to have been part of this large gathering. Nancy will always be here in the hearts of many.

Born to our museum’s founders Fred Sr. and Helen Heidrick, Nancy is near and dear to the our heart. Fred, along with his brother, Nancy’s Uncle Joe, were inventive and passionate. Their collection and restoration evolved into what is now the Heidrick Ag History Center in Woodland.

Nancy was family woman who loved unconditionally. She is remembered by those close to her as a pillar in the community, who displayed the true meaning of family.

The museum appreciates her devotion to the preservation of California’s agricultural history, and continued contributions through her family.
