When I heard that Nina had passed, it made me think of the time I took my first computer class at the high school. Nina was there too and she could type up a storm without looking at the keys, while I spent my time hunting and pecking.
She was a sweet lady with a beautiful smile. My prayers are with you all. Suzanne

I am so sorry to hear of Nina's passing. I know she has lived a long life and you will miss her but she's in a better place reunited with her loved ones. I got to know her whe we worked together on the election board for several years and had a great time.  You have been in my thoughts and prayers.
