Nina was known for her cooking and baking, some say she is the BEST of all time. Her specialties were "Gravy and Meatballs" and many desserts! Known by many as their second mom; she always provided advice and gave direction when needed, but most important LOVE. She enjoyed having the house filled with family and friends talking and laughing, the more the merrier. She really cherished her family and was always there for them.
