  3. I’m sending this note on behalf of several “girls” who worked at the Calgary Public Library at the time when Nina worked there. We remember fondly how she ruled the coffee room, making friends with many of the staff while keeping everything spic & span. Nina’s rum soaked cake and waffle cookies were often shared with us, as were stories about her family of whom she was very proud. We feel fortunate to have worked with Nina. Please accept our condolences.
    Nancy, Andrea, Flo, Chris
