She is also survived by 14 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren as well as nieces, nephews, and cousins around the world. She is predeceased by her husband Daniel W.

She married Dan, a United States Air Force Sergeant stationed at Clark AFB, in Angeles City on July 16th, 1967. They moved to the United States permanently in 1977. Over the next 42 years, Nita raised their 4 children while working various jobs in Food Service and Housekeeping, eventually retiring from State Employment at Griffin Memorial Hospital.
