I’ll always remember ms nita as I’ve worked with her over the past three months ! I’ll never forget to learn the rest of “Amazing Grace” as we sang together 3x a day . And I’ll never forget how she always loved her oatmeal hot for breakfast. And loved the spunk she had because we go on Nitas time and Nitas time only lol. I’ve learned a lot and became closer to God and learned a lot over the months from the motherly figure she’s allowed . Also appreciate all her children and grandchildren for giving me the opportunity to gain a lovely connection with their mother and grandmother .. may she rest in paradise and dwell in the house of the Lord .

I met Ms. Nita, as I called her, over three years ago at Brookdale. I immediately saw her strong Christian faith, her love of family and for those around her. She was faithful to attend the church services we provided every Sunday and always brought her wisdom and humor with her. I count it a privilege to call her my friend. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her, but we also rejoice for her graduation and heavenly reward. My sincere condolences to her family.
Love and Prayers,
Melanie Powers
