Nita spent her time traveling between her homes in WVC and St George Utah. She loves spending time with her family and friends. Her smile and contagious laugh could light up a room. She loved with her entire heart and soul. She always wanted a hug and gave the warmest wholehearted hugs that radiated the love she felt for you.
