Nina was born February 6, 1936 in Holdingford to John & Dorothy (Ziemba) Gallus. She was a proud farmers daughter and enjoyed farm life, except for the chickens! She had a special place in her heart for all creature’s big and small and loved feeding the birds, squirrels, ducks and even giraffes. Nina was a devout Catholic and shared her love for the Lord with all, blessing anyone in her path. She was a breast cancer survivor, a talented musician, involved volunteer in her community and an avid reader. Education was very important to her as well. She enjoyed puzzles, playing cribbage, cards, bingo, praying the rosary and watching the Twins. Her greatest accomplishment was being a dedicated and loving mother.
