Nina Ethel Dewberry Of Ellicott City, Maryland passed away on December 5, 2022.
Nina died peacefully at her home with her loving husband of 58 years by her side. Nina was born on July 15, 1945 in Morehead City, NC. As a military child, she moved often in her childhood. At the young age of 16 she found the love of her life Jim Dewberry at Seacrest High School in Boca Raton, Florida. Jim fondly recalls that they met when she tripped him as he was getting off the bus one morning and Nina fondly recalled the story of how she waited to get behind him in the lunch line to get his attention, and how happy she was when he carried her books. The adoration for each other was enduring.
The couple was married on September 18, 1963 and as Jim was in the US Air Force, they were able to travel while raising three children: James, Mary Ann, and Andrew.
Nina was a devout mother who truly demonstrated a love god and the Catholic faith. She loved volunteering for Sunday school activities church functions and ad hoc events. The conviction of her faith was always unwavering. Upon Jim’s retirement the couple settled in Maryland where Jim and Nina enjoyed volunteering at the Shrine of Saint Anthony. Nina had an innocent and quirky sense of humor that allowed everyone to be at ease. Those who knew her best were graced by her gift of unconditional love. Nina is survived by her husband Jim, her three children, and thirteen grandchildren.
On 21 December 2022 a wake will be held at 1:00 pm preceding a Memorial Mass at 2:00 pm at The Shrine of St. Anthony.
