Nora Nelson Prochaska

Reno - Nora Nelson Prochaska, 23, ended her journey on this earth on June 2, 2020, in Reno, NV. Although heartbroken by this sudden loss, her loved ones take hope that she has finally found peace. Born October 2, 1996, as Patrick Prochaska, she is survived by her mother Lisa Nelson Howie, stepfather Tom Howie, father Vern Prochaska; three sisters: Hannah Prochaska (Larris Slayton), Brooke Prochaska, Abigail Gamino; and three brothers: Solomon Gamino, Jr., Trevor Brossart and Tanner Brossart. A graduate of Nevada State High School and 2019 graduate of University of Nevada Reno, Nora served as an intern for U.S. Senator Jacky Rosen and as a Bernie Sanders 2020 campaign campus organizer. Nora was a brilliant student, an excellent writer, a devoted friend, and a passionate activist. She was a caring and engaged member of her community, described by a fellow activist as a "genius in how she connected with people". Passionate about music and art, she was actively involved in Reno's Holland Project, was an enthusiastic supporter of ACTIONN, and a fearless advocate for Transgender Allies Group. A celebration of Nora's life will be held at Encounter Church, 237 N. Stephanie St. Ste. E in Henderson, Nevada, at 2:00 in the afternoon on August 15, 2020. In lieu of flowers, please consider honoring Nora through a memorial to or or the charity of your choice.
