Nankieshore's fiancé, Marcus Khan, reportedly told WABC, "We lost a dedicated mother with a heart of gold." The late healthcare worker left behind eight-year-old twin boys.

According to Khan, Nankieshore did not want to leave the hospital understaffed with the COVID-19 crisis going on. She insisted on going to work and doing her part to help.

Nankieshore began working at Northwell Health in 2012 as a customer service representative. In 2013, the hospital transferred her to the emergency room.
