Nettie was a private person who enjoyed spending time with her nieces, nephews and grand nieces and grand nephews. She also had a special place in her heart for her two cats who she considered to be “good company”.

Nettie loved reading in the winter months and gardening in the spring and summer, inheriting a passion for plants from her father. Among the many things her family will miss about Nettie will be her constant smile and easy going demeanor as well as her homemade holiday cookies and treats. Nettie was blessed to live independently until the day she was called home.
