Everyone knows or will remember Nennie for her fried bakes, special west indian meals, her love for the New York Yankees baseball team, and her famous belly dances. Nennie loved going to Atlantic City. Her favorite times were always taking the senior citizens bus ride to AC on Tuesdays, when she lived in Elizabeth. She would speak of spending the whole day there, and then enjoying a nice meal in the casino buffet prior to returning home. As Nennie approached and surpassed the age of 100, she still relished in heading back to Atlantic City, as she always spoke of it being fun. She often remarked, if she won the ‘big one’, she’d be able to take care of her entire family.
