Afflictions' charms have bound you for awhile
The Guest Book is expired.
Rerouted your ideas of time and place
But pain and grief has not erased your smile
Or changed the contour of your pleasant face
On April 4, 2013, after a long battle with cancer, Nina Mae Severin was called home to be with the Lord. Our Mom was 82 years of age. Nina, the youngest of five children, was born May 9, 1930 in Bozeman. The family moved to Reed Point, Mont. where she attended school and graduated as the valedictorian of her high school class.
On April 6, 1948 she married her high school sweetheart, Roy. They moved to Billings, Mont. where they worked and raised their three children. Nina, unable to attend college, learned and excelled in real estate and banking. It was her life-long career. She retired in 1993 at the age of 63. At the time of her retirement she was a senior vice president at Security Federal Savings and Loan with 20 years of service.
She was preceded in death by her parents, William C. and Mabel P. Ford; three brothers, Glen, Wayne, and Gordon; her sister, Dohris Marx; and grandson, Ritchie Severin. She is survived by two sons, Mike (Patty) and Dick (Penny); her daughter, Kathy (Tony) Yonkaitis; six grandchildren; and 14 great-grandchildren.
She was loved by all and will be missed.
Nina's family would like to thank Rocky Mountain Hospice and Highgate Assisted Living for the loving care they provided to our Mom. She loved you all.
A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 13, 2013 at Dahl Funeral Chapel with a reception to follow.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made in Nina's name to Disabled American Veterans, P.O. Box 14301, Cincinnati, OH 45250-0301, Attn: Gift Processing or www.dav.org/Donate.
