The family moved to Sheridan in 1964 Nina worked at Chapeks and then Woolworth for many years. On retirement she opened a small antique store behind her home. She loved refinishing furniture. She had an eye for beautiful old dishes and glass. While in her 80s, she enjoyed volunteering at the Catholic thrift store, and made many new friends there.
Attended First Assembly of God church faithfully until her health kept her at home.
Loved anything outdoors. Gardening, raking leaves, camping, walking, trips to the Big Horns. She loved rocks and was always bringing them home from her walks. She had so much fun going to garage sales, and was always looking for a bargain. If it was a quarter, she would offer a dime.
At the memory care home where she lived her last months, she was asked what her favorite job was and, without hesitation, she answered "serving the Lord".
She was the 5th in line of 16 children. She loved her childhood and spoke of it often and with much joy.
Survived by 6 sisters. Preceded in death by 2 sisters and 7 brothers.
Laid to rest by her beloved husband, Edward, whom she turned the covers down for 67 years.
We're turning the covers down for you, mom.
