I worked with Nina at the American Car & Foundry (ACF) in Milton in the late 60s. We were both key punch operators. Working with Nina we became good friends and got together often outside of the office. I had the privilege of meeting her parents and Dale. As life happens, we both moved on in our lives and sadly we lost touch with each other. It is sad to hear this news of her passing. Thinking of Dale and the family and their loss.

I was so lucky and blessed to have such a special aunt in my life. She was always so kind, loving, and fun. I can remember how close we were and how Dale and her took me into their home while I was working at the horse barn Dale was manger/trainer of. They also took me up to Rhode Island for a vacation when they were living up there. Dale was stationed there for the Navy. That is were I learned how to cook her famous recipe for spaghetti sauce. I still use that recipe today.
So many wonderful memories. I will miss you, but you will always have a special place in my heart. Rest In Peace with Jesus, and tell mom and Mama Craig and Poppy hi for me
