Antonina (Nina) K. Fortin succumbed to a long battle with cancer on June 22nd, and is now no longer in pain. She is preceded in death by her parents, Dominick and Dorothy Ingraffia, her father-in-law and mother-in-law Maurice and Helen Fortin; her beloved husband, Andre (Andy) passed on May 19th, 1989.
She leaves behind her three sons Michael, Maurice (Leonard Hughes) and Timothy and almost daughter Missy Meyer; three grandchildren Alexandria, Andre and Seth; one sister, Sandra and two brothers, Ralph and Dominick Jr. She also left behind her best friend, Delma Gockel.
She will miss all the laughs they have had together. She fought with all she could, but now will be at peace with her Andy.

My heartfelt sympathies to all. Nina was my Mother-in-law for almost 20 years. A mom, a mentor, a friend. But Most importantly, she was such a fun-loving grandma to Andre. I was blessed to have had her in my life. Playing Charlimange and drinking Ammaretto as we laughed into wee hours in the morning... (The Fortin men always seemed to get those big hands!!!! ) I will treasure the times and memories. No Lasagna will ever compare to the amazing masterpiece she created. You have your spot at the big card game in heaven with your husband now.

Dear Micheal, Maurice, Timmy and family. So sorry to hear of Nina passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all on this very sad time. We didnt see Nina and Andy very often but loved all the times we were together in Ontario and Quebec Canada. My cousin Andy is now with his love Nina.... Glad they are together again. Take care of each other......Love Andy cousin Nikki

Mike, Maurice, and Tim so sorry for your loss.
I remember Mom as an amazingly strong, spunky lady. When we were still in high school and just beyond, she made her home the fun, safe place for us to hang out. She loved us as if we were her own. She fed us the most amazing juicy burgers off the grill. I can remember endless hours of playing cards at the dining room table and her laugh as she raked in all of our quarters. It was never quiet at that dining room table. So much energy, story telling, teasing (with love), and laughter.
Her energy, smile, and laugh will be missed.
