Nina & I worked together in Employee Health.from 2002 until her retirement. She was so dedicated to her patients. I was lucky enough to call her a dear friend and shared many trips to Vanderbilt College basketball games with her. Her faith was so important to her and after I was widowed, she brought me to her Circle of Love group at First Baptist. I moved out of state in 2016, but our friendship continued through phone calls. I will miss her, but happy she is at peace with her family and her Saviour.

Played a lot of golf with Nina and she was always a joy to be around. She was a dear friend of
Ann Coley Brandow and often a golfing partner. An extraordinarily nurse and was an early mainstay
for Sumner Regional . She will be many.

I loved Nina! I started at SRMC in 1997 and she would make so much fun of me when she would check my blood sugar at the health fair. I was such a wimp. She pin my arm down because I would try to pull back. I will never forget her.

Nina was the sweetest and most kind soul, as well as an outstanding nurse! She was such a good employee health nurse and I had the pleasure of knowing her when I worked at SRMC from 1995 to 2004, when my husband and I retired. Prayers for her family and may the good Lord surround them as they mourn her loss.

From elementary school to high school to a 3 year RN nursing program, we were together. I am sad that you are gone from this earth, but I believe that you went to a better place.

You are the strongest woman I have ever known. You showed me direction when I did not know where to go. Many people will not know our last conversations but like you said it won’t matter. Thank You for being so important to Michael and myself and thanks for the heads up. I love you so much and of course you will always be my other mom.
