The Bihlmaier College Fund

Edit: 5/27/2012


There is now a PayPal account and a bank account that has been created for the 529 Education Savings Plan which is under Nancy's name and is now the preferred method of donating.  I will withdraw the funds that have been graciously donated to this site, and will transfer it to the newly opened savings plan.

The PayPal account is linked to a newly created savings account at Bank of America, which will then be transferred into a Fidelity 529 Education Savings Plan. Since the baby does not yet have a Social Security Number, the account is in Nancy's name and decisions regarding the funds will be made at her discretion.  Please contact me at [email redacted] for more information regarding this account.

Alternatively, checks can be made out to "The Nate Bihlmaier Memorial Fund" and sent to:

The Nate Bihlmaier Memorial Fund
The Farmers Bank
102 West Main Street
Osborne, Kansas 67473

A college fund for baby Bihlmaier would make Nancy's life just a little easier.  Please help to bring one less worry to her wonderful mind.  A 529 college fund will be set up under Nancy's name.  Hopefully we can make it further than the $10,000 mark with the inflation of education.

I'm Peter Tran.  I've known Nancy for about 10 years.  We went to UT together, but didn't actually meet until we both started working at Cerner after college.  Being in another city, we bonded as Texans and not knowing how to deal with the cold and not knowing many people. Through all these years she has always been there for me and I want to be able to do something for her to help her when the time comes.

I know I don't know all of you, but we all share that common bond of caring about Nancy and Nate and their future baby. Hopefully that is enough for you to want to donate, but if you have any questions at all, please feel free to reach me at [phone redacted] or email me at [email redacted].


Hi everyone! THANK YOU SO MUCH for you generosity during this extremely difficult time. It warms my heart to know so many people care and love Nate & Nancy. 

I'm Jeannie Tran - Nancy is my Sigma big sis and no matter how many years it's been since college, she is and will always be a big sis to me. She is one of the most kind-hearted people I know. I'm still in shock that something this terrible and tragic could happen as I am sure you all are, too. I know your kind thoughts, words, and prayers mean a lot to Nancy. It was wonderful to know that we can all come together and show our support. We would greatly appreciate it if you could pass this link around.

Nancy does not know that we are doing this for her (though she will eventually). Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.


Jeannie & Peter
