I have many fond memories of Skeet. She was a special lady and loved her many “daughters”. She took care of all of her girls. She loved her family and many friends. My thoughts are with Cindy, Candy and Linda. I pray you find comfort and strength.

It’s so hard to say goodbye to Skeet because she was my friend, my confidant and we were joined together as family. I never told her I loved her but wish I had. Skeet was kind, thoughtful and beautiful in every way. She was a wonderful, loving mother to Cindy and Candy and her grandchildren who meant everything to her. I will miss her very much.

Skeet was always very kind, gracious and welcoming to me when I 1st entered the picture many, many years ago. She diffently had the gift of hospitality and if you were fortunate enough to be on the Nyburg guest list you were fortunate. Danny and I will always be greatful for the season of life we shared with the Nyburg family. Praying for each of you and your incredible loss. Asking God to fill the void in each of your hearts and homes this holiday season. Blessings and much love, Karen and Danny Koon

Terry and I shared some great times with Skeet and 'Shine' over a lot of years, also with practically all the family members mentioned in the obituary. Skeet was a great person and I know she was loved. Prayers for you all. Lance Tucker
