Nina retired from Target, where she enjoyed working on the price changing team. Nina also helped run Kolenda Sand, Gravel and Trucking, a family business.

The family would like to thank everyone for all the love and support shown to our mom since the passing of our dad in 2019. Our mom wanted a small family gathering to celebrate her life. We, as a family, are honoring those wishes.
The family extends a huge thank you to the staff at Diamond Willow (Lester Park) for the loving care given to our mom. Too many to name individually but you know who you are.
