Nettie’s love for family was unconditional. She enjoyed being around everyone with a nice glass of wine and laughing with her loud family. Nettie was an avid Red Sox Fan who loved to celebrate opening day with her Cracker Jack in hand. On a beautiful day you could find her outside under the sun getting her tan on. During holidays or family gatherings she would prepare her fried garden eggplant or bake her famous Oatmeal Raisin cookies, Apple Cake, or Ice-Box Cake.
To the Queen “Good Moms let their kids lick the beaters. Great Moms turn the mixer off first”. She will be missed immensely by her family.
