It is with the deepest possible sadness that we must tell you that Nita passed away on Tuesday.

Her art was incredibly important to her - we are so grateful to this community for your support of her and her projects. She was constantly creating, and greatly valued the opportunity to share her work with you.

For more information and her obituary, you may visit:
Davis Funeral Home

Please keep us in your thoughts - she was a beloved wife, mother, and friend, and will be missed more than words can say.

Take care,
Nita's husband Jim, and daughter Tracy
