While she may have not had biological children she deeply enjoyed being an aunt. She was the gift giver, room renter, event supporter, and simply all around mother figure who was beloved by all of her nieces and nephews. One of her many enjoyments was hosting the family holiday gatherings. Nette will always be remembered by her fashionable style, encouraging smile, contagious laugh and never-ending generosity. While she may be absent from our physical lives she will forever be present in our hearts.
