Nancy Bliss Joy Westmore
Nancy 'Nan' Bliss 2003
Whilst visiting her nan in Tasmania, to celebrate her birthday, nurse Dee Bliss was forced to stay on when her grandmother choked on some cake and was taken ill. Nancy was then moved into a retirement village, but was too independent for them and ended up returning home. The following year, Dee returned to visit Nancy, this time escaping problems in her love life, as she became caught between two men, Darcy Tyler and Toadie Rebecchi. When Darcy then turned up, looking for Dee, Nancy approved of him, as he'd looked after Dee "properly", and Dee asked Darcy to talk to Nancy about getting some home help, as she obviously wasn't coping on her own. As the three were getting along well, Darcy ended up staying for a few days, and when Toadie then came looking for her, Nancy frostily told him that Dee was out - with her new boyfriend - leaving him believing that he'd lost her for good.
