Nova was the first person my husband and I met when we moved into Nanticoke 32 years ago. Our nieghbor for 29 plus years her witty personality will be sadly missed. Condolences to the family

Our memories of Nova are filled with fun and laughter. The feisty, grande dame of Nanticoke always had words of wisdom and was ready to orchestrate or take part in a prank with friends Anne and Mary. She gave creedence to that age old modicum of walk softly but carry a big stick. Our deepest sympathies to her family and take solace that Nova left a positive mark on this world and we are better people for knowing her......Luv Bill and Helen Missen
