Plan Ahead

Nancy Gier

October 10, 1959 –
 February 15, 2023


The amazing Nancy Ann Gier, 63, died at home on February 15th 2023.  Thankfully, she was able to hold off the ravages of cancer long enough for her beloved Chiefs to wrap up a Super Bowl victory.  And long enough to celebrate one last Valentine’s Day with her husband and soulmate of 46 years, Randy.

Her spirit lives on in her three equally amazing children, Megan, Brandon and Tyler.  Her Son-in-law Mat.  Daughter-in-law Claudia.  Brother Randy.  Sisters Becky and Amy.  A whole hoard of Nieces, Nephews, and in-laws.  Plus, hundreds of people who have become her friends.

A Celebration of her life will be held at 2:00PM, on Monday, February 20th.  The celebration will be held at Aria Funeral Home, 19310 Preston Road, Dallas, Texas 75252.

All attendees are encouraged to share their favorite Nancy stories.  How you met Nancy.  What you admired about her.  A way she warmed your heart, made your laugh, or put a smile on your face.

Please dress casually.  Out of respect, those with suits will be turned away at the door!  (or at least provided with a Chiefs jersey for a quick change).

Streaming will be available via this link:

In lieu of flowers, please donate to one of her favorite causes:

A Reception will be held after from 4:00-6:00PM at Waterford Point Amenity Center, 7950 Castlebridge, The Colony, TX 75056.

    Oh Randy,

    I have not seen you or Nancy in person for over 40 years, yet I miss her (and you) terribly right now! The memories of your mustang, metcalf south mall, Nancy, Terry, you and Gary, my 16th birthday! DQ! Nancy was such a spark, kind, funny and her laugh! and how so early in life you found such a special person! You were both great people but together you were more than the sum of your parts! Love you man!

"Excellent customer service, they made you feel like you were their only customer. Very helpful and explained what we should expect during the process. They basically took care of our needs during this time. They contacted DFW National Cemetery for us which made it a smooth experience. Definitely will use them again."

"If I could give 6 stars I would. Aria made a difficult easier to deal with by basically taking care of everything in an efficient but very empathetic manner. I can speak highly enough of Dusty Martin, who helped us with all of the planning and logistics. He was incredibly understanding and helpful."

"Nothing prepares you for the grief you go through when losing a child. I called this funeral home at 2:00 am broken and could barely talk. The amount of compassion and empathy they showed me immediately let me know I found the right place to cremate my son. I cannot thank them enough for their professionalism, SINCERE concern, and commitment to making sure my son was honored in the most respectful way. I hope this Funeral home values her as much as my family and I do."

"I can’t say enough about how helpful and professional Dusty Martin, the funeral director at the Aria Cremation location on NW Highway has been. From my initial call, he was kind and informative. My friend died at home while on hospice and she was picked up in about an hour after receiving the call from the hospice nurse. The person who arrived to pick her up was also very professional/respectful and allowed us to take as much time with her as we wished. When I met with Dusty the next day about arrangements, he explained the process and options available without being pushy or trying to “sell” extras. Throughout the process, he kept me informed and, for example, was careful to be certain I understood the cost of the obituary I wanted and offered some options for reducing that cost if I wished. When I stopped by for another reason and started talking about some of the problems I was having with the pictures and media I hoped to use at a memorial lunch I was planning, he not only listened patiently but offered technology advice and let me use his personal media player. I have had experience arranging cremations for four others using two other local companies, and this experience with Dusty at Aria has been by far the best one I have had."

"My Daddy’s service and our family experience at Aria Northwest Highway was truly blessed. Funeral Director Dustin Martin is the kind of person that you would like to see on a more regular basis – but in his industry – you hope to not see him that often. That being said – THANK YOU DUSTIN for your unending kindness, compassion and friendship through the process. Meeting you and discussing Dallas History, Find A Grave and my Dad’s lifelong contributions to the great City of Dallas was simply wonderful! In memory of my dad James A. Dodd, Sr. – I want to personally thank you and let you know that you made everything better in that moment. Your calling to “Be There” is spot on. Aria has a one in a million guy in you! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: God Bless You!!"
