Berlin Nancy Joan (Rickett) Berlin, born January 12, 1930, in Columbus, Ohio entered into eternal rest and peace on March 4, 2014, at Dublin Methodist Hospital after suffering a cardiac event. Nancy was a woman of many interests and hobbies. Most of all, she was a homemaker, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and aunt. She was a loyal friend to all who knew her. Early in her life Nancy supported the Beaux Arts and the Hannah Neil Center for Kids. She actively participated in the English-Speaking Union and the Ladies Auxiliary of the Ohio Society of Professional Engineers with her husband Harry. Most recently Nancy enjoyed socializing with old and new friends over dinner at the MCL Cafeteria. Nancy was the second child of Foster L. Rickett and Helen L. (Blaettnar) Rickett. A near lifelong resident of Upper Arlington, she graduated from Upper Arlington High School in 1948. She graduated from Stephens College in Columbia, Missouri, in 1950. Throughout her life she remained an active Stephens College alumna and enjoyed participating in many reunions and activities in support of her cherished alma mater. On February 24, 1951, Nancy married Harrison Samuel Berlin in Columbus. The marriage produced two sons, Robert Samuel and Michael Albert. Mrs. Berlin is survived by Robert and his wife, Sharon Weedin of Columbia, Missouri, and Michael and his wife, Carolyn of Huntington, WV. Her grandchildren are Harrison (Boise, Idaho), Elizabeth Berlin, and husband, Matt Reiter (Atlanta), and Robert "Hank" (Huntington). Her step-grandchildren are Caleb Siefkas, Madeline Siefkas, and Adrian Siefkas, all of Columbia. Nancy is predeceased by an older brother Foster L. Rickett, Jr. who died in childhood.
