Nancy Walters of Las Vegas, NV, who acted with Elvis Presley in the movie, "Blue Hawaii", and who was a Christian minister has died. After a long battle with pancreatic cancer, she passed away peacefully in her sleep on September 29. Walters, a former fashion model and "glamour girl" (1958 Deb Star), played the part of a school teacher in charge of students who were touring with Elvis as their guide in "Blue Hawaii".
A few years ago, Nancy was reunited with co-star Darlene Tompkins. Through Darlene, a local Elvis fan couple befriended Nancy and visited her often. Recently, they managed a greeting card mailing campaign that delighted Nancy for many weeks. A world traveler, she especially enjoyed the cards from places she had visited. Nancy remarked once, "Elvis has left me so many friends."
