ABOUD NAZZERA MARTHA ABOUD, born January 4, 1929, was called into heaven on Thursday, July 14, 2011. Auntie Nazz, as she was affectionately called by her nieces, nephews and cousins, died peacefully at her home. Auntie Nazz was a kind, gentle and loving "mother" to many. She was a devoted daughter to her parents, Cicar and Makoul Aboud, and a nurturing and loyal sister to Abdou, Nick, and Sammy Aboud, who have all preceded her in death. Auntie Nazz worked tirelessly by Abdou's side at Economy furniture Company for more than 50 years. She was formally employed as an account manager at the White House department store, and spent most of her adult life caring for her dear mother Cicar. Auntie Nazz was an avid bowler and a fabulous cook. She mastered the art of preparing middle-eastern dishes that made her a household name among family and friends. Her smile and wit charmed endless customers and friends. Auntie Nazz loved her simple and humble home and spent the last few years of her life resting comfortably with her caregivers and her nephew and godson, Gary. Nazzera Aboud is survived by her nieces and nephews, Dr. Dwayne Aboud, Russell Aboud, Gary Aboud, Sammy Aboud, Jr., David Aboud, Brian Aboud, Marni Aboud and Nicholas Aboud. Auntie Nazz is preceded in death by her nieces, Marcy Aboud, Debra Aboud and her great-nephew Braden Aboud. The Aboud family wishes to extend their most heartfelt thanks to Virginia and Rosie for taking such wonderful care of Auntie Nazz these last few years. Funeral Services will be held on Monday July 18, 2011 at 10:00AM at Martin Funeral Home West, with Chaplain Sam Faraone officiating.
