Nina leaves to mourn; her daughters Paula (Jerry) Berard and Leah Wood of Courtenay, her grandchildren; Andrea Ball, Karleen Paish, Mason Paish, Max and Michael Berard, great grandchildren; Kurtis, Ty and Callum, her brothers; Ralph Bell (Margaret) of Nova Scotia, Blanchard Bell (Marion) of Ontario, Doug Bell (Shirley) of Nova Scotia, Gerald Bell (Carole) of Nova Scotia, Max Bell (Barbara) of Nova Scotia and Allen Bell of Nova Scotia, her sisters Bertha Brunk of Ontario and Sharon Bell of Nova Scotia.

Nina spent a lot of time involved with her younger daughter in Brownies as a Tawny Owl. Nina spent her working years in retail, always dealing one on one with the public. Helping people was what she liked doing best. In her leisure time, Nina was an avid gardener and when she wasn’t in the yard fussing, she was busy reading. Nina was a devoted wife and mother, she never asked for anything, but always gave without question. She was the glue that held her family together. She was a kind and generous person, always willing to help anyone she knew. Nina will be sadly missed by her family and everyone whose lives she touched.

If friends so wish, donations in Nina’s memory made to the Canadian Cancer Society, #102 – 1509 Cliffe Ave., Courtenay, B.C. V9N 2K6 would be appreciated.
