Nina was a friendly loving person who accepted everyone without judging. She gave more than she ever received and loved with all she had. She had an infectious smile and gave the most amazing hugs. Nina could make something from nothing. She enjoyed snagging, farming, the state fair, concerts, and dancing. But her family, friends, and faith were most important.
