Nancy Meiss, a distinguished 50-year judge, a tireless volunteer and one of the sport’s most ardent supporters, surrounded herself with the things she loved. When she passed away Jan. 1, 2013, in Cincinnati, her mementos were a collection of a life well-lived.
Now, after selecting keepsakes near to their hearts, Meiss’ family is making many of the items public in an online auction that is drawing the attention of figure skating fans and collectors worldwide. There are so many figurines, artwork and Olympic collectibles that just viewing them online is a treat.

Meiss, who was born Dec. 12, 1922, began her career in 1958 as an ice dancing and figures judge. She judged at every level, including World Championships and the 1988 Olympic Winter Games in Calgary. In 2009, she was inducted into the U.S. Figure Skating Hall of Fame.
