Pray for Nancy!

That's so heartbreaking.  I think most longtime fans have a soft spot for TAR1 racers and now we've lost 2.  My sympathies.

Update:  Brennan said she passed away after a battle with ALS.

I have been lurking on the RFF page for ages, however I havent signed up until I saw this news. The Amazing Race 1 is still my favourite season, and I just started watching it again these last few nights, and all the way through for some reason I kept wondering how Nancy was. Im so shocked to see that she has passed away, she seemed to be an amazing lady anf it was a privage to watch her on the amazing race. RIP

I am profoundly saddened to hear the news of Nancy's passing. No one communicated their reactions to everything they saw in that first Race better than Nancy, and her spirit in adapting to India and to Thailand still remain among the most memorable in all of the seasons of TAR that has followed.

She will be missed. And my prayers go out to Emily and the rest of the Hoyt family.

RIP Nancy. :'(

They were my favourite team and it still breaks my heart today that we didn't get to see more of them because they were eliminated due to a penalty. And it is shocking that they were not invited back for all-stars as well. They were one of the most amazing teams on the history of The Amazing Race and Nancy was such a great model, mother and example to show the viewers from all around the world how much she loved her life, daughter and everything she did while she was on the race.

My prayers goes to her friends and family members. :(

I thought everyone might enjoy seeing a picture of Nancy & Emily from last year.  Nancy was still a lovely woman and Emily has definitely grown into a beautiful young woman.

I have passed my condolences on to Brennan and Bill of TAR1, I am just so saddened by her passing, what a beautiful inspirational being, who will be hugely missed by millions of fans :( I am pretty gutted, words cannot express how it feels to lose apart of your 'TAR' family. She was far too young, and I had such a soft spot for Nancy and Emily was a crush  :cmaslol My love and sympathy is with them in this tough time, too quick too soon, but they can be happy in the knowledge that she brought joy and happiness to many of the viewers of TAR's first season, an amazing lady who will be hugely missed   :cmas4

Here is a link to Nancy's Obituary:

http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/wacotrib/obituary.aspx?n=nancy-hoyt&pid=154961560&fhid=8610

It includes this as well:

Quote
Nancy loved to travel and visited 34 different countries throughout the course of her life, many of them multiple times. Nancy and her daughter Emily Hoyt Crew, were original cast members of the Amazing Race on CBS and shared an incredible adventure together. Nancy's love of travel was not just about seeing highlights, but about understanding the people and their culture. One of her fondest memories was giving pens to children in Cambodia. Whether she was walking on the Great Wall of China, climbing mountains in Patagonia, zip lining in Costa Rica or running through a market in Tunisia, Nancy loved the journey. Nancy enriched the tribal experience for those around her with her brave exploits; from eating a witchetty grub in Australia, to honing her skills at a cooking school in Tuscany. Nancy was willing to truly embrace and experience the richness the various cultures had to offer. She loved cooking, sewing, spending time with her puppies, and dining (especially with her cherished and beautiful friends). She was surrounded until the end with incredible love by her friends and family and will be eternally missed and forever remembered.

My goodness, that's so sad... :( Nancy & Emily were one of my first favorite teams, so this is incredibly saddening to learn of. Thoughts are with her loved ones. She will absolutely be missed, within our TAR community and far beyond. <3
