I had the honor of working with Dara Nurmi at the Michigan Works of Macomb-St. Clair Counties SCSEP, and found her outlook on life inspirational. She was a woman of her word, honest, warm, and open to the many experiences life offers. I admired her for her positive disposition. The last time I spoke with her was in late February and I remember hanging up the telephone and thinking … "she is such a lovely person." She left a lasting impression on me and she will be missed.

I just learned from a friend that Dara had recently passed. Please know that I am thinking and praying for you her family at this sad time and accept my sincere condolences. I was a classmate of Dara’s and will forever remember that big beautiful endearing smile of hers. I have fond memories of good times together with her. She will be missed. Fondly, Linda de Ruiter-Berg

I think I speak for every employee at Macomb Habitat who knew Dara. She loved her job! You could see it on her face and in the way in which she contributed day after day.

Dara always went the extra mile. She held our mission of providing community, hope and homes very close to her heart. Many times customers at the ReStore would try to convince Dara that she should reduce the price of something even more. But she held her ground because she knew that every dollar meant more lives would be touched in a positive way.

Her Manager, Marnie, felt that Dara was sent to Habitat at just the right time and for all the best reasons. We will grieve for her. She was a part of our Habitat family and she will be greatly missed.
