Mary Margaret Nice (Baker) “Nan”, 77, of Moundsville, W.Va. peacefully went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Monday, December 9, 2014.
Mary was born November 13, 1937, in Bergolz, Ohio, the daughter of the late John Baker and Mary Emery Baker Mason.
In addition to her parents, Mary was preceded in death in 2010 by the love of her life and husband of 52 years, John W. Nice.
She is survived by two daughters, Chrystal (John) Rine and Jamie (Jim) Lantz, and son, John W. Nice Jr.; a trio of sisters: Loretta (Obert) Conner, Sandy (Gene) Shaffer and Judy Fusani, and two brothers, John and James Baker.
In addition, Mary was a proud grandmother to five grandchildren, whom she loved dearly: Shawn Rine (Jessica), Timothy Bierce, Matthew Bierce, Kelley Rine and Alexander Bierce. The twinkle of her eyes were her five great grandchildren: Shelby Bierce (Tim), Isabella, Miley and Jaxson Rine (Shawn), and Jacob VanSickle (Kelley).Mary was a graduate of B.M. Spurr School of Nursing and was a past volunteer at Reynolds Memorial Hospital. Mary was an avid reader, often going through several books a week, and took great pleasure in shopping for her 10 grandchildren. She insisted on buying each one Halloween and Christmas outfits each year.
It is Mary’s wish that there be no visitation. Instead, a Celebration of Life will be held in her honor for close family and friends from noon-5 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 13, 2014 at her home.
In lieu of flowers and cards, contributions can be made in Mary’s name to Wheeling Health Right, 61 29th St, Wheeling, W.Va.26003.
