She was raised on her beloved family farm near McCartysville, OH, and graduated from Holy Angels (Sidney Lehman) High School in 1950. She then enrolled and graduated as an RN from Good Samaritan Hospital in 1954 where she devoted many years of service. She married Donald A. Nutt on August 21, 1954 and they lived happily together for 66 years.

She was always happy and possessed an uncanny ability to bring happiness to all who knew her. Her loving engagement, availability, and thoughtfulness were extended to all and especially to those often forgotten by others. Most of all she was a devout Catholic with an emphasis on loving thy neighbor.

Golf and bridge were two of her passions but most of all she loved to have fun and was always up for a good time. She loved sing-a-longs and the camaraderie of friends and family.

A private Mass of Christian Burial will be held at the convenience of the family. Interment Poplar Hill Cemetery, Vandalia. We will celebrate her life later when we can all be safely together. In the meantime, we welcome stories or video testimonies to her life. In lieu of flowers we ask that in her memory, you pay forward a good deed for someone in need.
